Pupil Premium

Hassell Primary Pupil Premium: Allocation and planned expenditure 2017/2018

Principles for funding allocation:

  • We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils.
  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups. This specifically includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are addressed.
  • In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who are eligible for free school meals, (or have been eligible in the last 6 years) are socially disadvantaged.
  • We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We therefore allocate Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils that the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.

Pupil Premium funding will be allocated following annual needs analysis which will identify priority classes and groups. See below for the planned expenditure for 2018 - 1019 and impact in previous years
