Pupil Premium 17/18
Schools receive Pupil Premium funding based on the numbers of pupils who are eligible for Free School Meals. This money is allocated to initiatives to ensure pupils reach their full potential, both academically and socially.
For the academic year 2017 – 2018 Huntingdon Primary School’s Pupil Premium funding allocation was £190,825.
Our Pupil Premium Expenditure was £202,612.
This funding was used towards helping provide the following initiatives:
|Additional Teaching – to close the gap
Group and individual support.
Breakfast and afterschool staffing
|To support pupils through all different aspects of life and to teach social skills and self-esteem. These staff members also support families.|
|To help pupils start the day with a healthy meal. This allows them to come into school alert and ready for learning.
The money has funded provisions and resources to the club.
|Curriculum resources to support pupils, including specialized ICT software|
|Funding Places on School Trips
|To ensure the children are able to participate and to give the children the opportunity to experience new and challenging activities. A percentage of the cost of trips and visits was paid.|
|Small group work|
|Funding Club Activities
|Subsidised places at school clubs allowing the children to participate and to give children the opportunities to experience new and challenging activities.|
|Provision of school milk every day|
|Provision of 1 cardigan/jumper to all entitled children|
The impact of this spending can be clearly seen in the pupil data outcomes. These show that the gap between pupils in receipt of Pupil Premium at Huntingdon Primary School and schools elsewhere, together with the gap between the pupils in receipt of Pupil Premium Funding and other pupils are narrowing.
