The Pupil Premium is designed to ensure that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. The funding is allocated to Local Authorities and schools with pupils from Reception to Y11 who are eligible for free school meals (FSM), are in Looked After Care (LAC) or have parents currently in the Armed Forces. or have been adopted.
This statement and relevant data is reported on the school website and specific interventions of individual pupils can be reported directly to individual parents if requested.
The performance of pupils in receipt of free school meals in Cambridgeshire as a whole is poor – ranging between 112th and 141st out of 151 Local Authorities, according to data from the Local Authority in their guidance booklet on Pupil Premium. This is not the case for Highfield. Data from 2016 shows that pupils eligible for Pupils Premium made similar progress overall to those who are not. The previous years data shows a similar level of progress between the two groups overall.
Highfield School makes very good use of the Pupil Premium. We use the funding to address areas identified as ‘could be better’ at different levels:
