Pupil Premium






Our Vision


At Halewood C of E Primary School, we provide an outstanding education for ALL of our pupils, and strive for every pupil to make exceptional progress. Fundamental to this aim is ensuring that disadvantaged pupils are given every opportunity to make the same progress as those pupils who are less disadvantaged. We use our Pupil Premium funding to ensure outstanding, sustainable provision for disadvantaged pupils.

High-quality teaching is at the heart of our approach, with a focus on areas in which disadvantaged pupils require the most support. This is proven to have the greatest impact on closing the disadvantage attainment gap and at the same time will benefit the non-disadvantaged pupils in our school. Implicit in the intended outcomes detailed below, is the intention that non-disadvantaged pupils’ attainment will be sustained and improved alongside progress for their disadvantaged peers.


Our strategy is also integral to wider school plans for education recovery, notably in its targeted support through the National Tutoring Programme for pupils whose education has been worst affected, including non-disadvantaged pupils.   


Our approach will be responsive to common challenges and individual needs, rooted in robust diagnostic assessment, not assumptions about the impact of disadvantage. The approaches we have adopted complement each other to help pupils excel. To ensure they are effective we will:

  • ensure disadvantaged pupils are challenged in the work that they’re set
  • act early to intervene at the point need is identified
  • adopt a whole school approach in which all staff take responsibility for disadvantaged pupils’ outcomes and raise expectations of what they can achieve



Pupil Premium funding was introduced in April 2011, and is paid by means of a specific grant based on school census figures for pupils, reception to year 6, registered as eligible for FSM at any point in the last 6 years and pupils in care or who left care through adoption or another formal route. The school also recognises the educational disadvantage faced by other pupils, including those who are Children in Need of help and protection, and are receiving statutory support from local authority social care. 


The Government believes that the Pupil Premium is the best way to address the underlying inequalities between children eligible for FSM and those who aren't. The funding is additional main school funding to reach the disadvantaged pupils who need it most.

The government announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up lost time after school closure. This is especially important for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds
