How do we spend out pupil premium funding?

Primary schools are given different amounts of pupil premium funding dependent on the circumstances of pupils who attend their school. Typically, for each child from Reception to Year 6 who is entitled to Free School Meals, school receives an additional £1455 per school year. Our school leadership team choose how to spend the pupil premium funding in a way that is of the most benefit to help disadvantaged pupils meet their full potential, such as to cover the cost of trips, additional tuition, attending wrap around care, funding extracurricular activities, providing resources that support pupil learning, free school milk and a uniform allowance of £50.00.

PLEASE NOTE: To keep records up to date, Hertfordshire require that you make a new application every September.
