Pupil Premium

Rationale 

At Highfields we believe that every child has the right to achieve. We recognise that barriers to achievement takes many forms and we look for individual ways to support children to do their best. One way we do this is by offering pupils a wide range of opportunities and ensure that there is access for all. Pupil Premium funding enables us to target support for pupils who have been in receipt of free school meals. The support comes in many forms and is tailored to the needs of the children. It may be used to enable a child to have access to online resources, participate in “experiences” or “school visits”, or it may be to have more tailored curriculum support in class.  The needs are reviewed regularly and Governors receive termly reports on how well these pupils are doing and check  the money is being allocated appropriately.

The next Pupil Premium Review will take place in September 2019
