Pupil Premium at High Hesket CE School
In 2011-12 the Government lauched its Pupil Premium funding. This money is sent to schools based on the numbers of pupils in the school who are eligible for Free School Meals(FSM). From 2012-13, this has been expanded to include all children who have been eligible for FSM within the last 6 years.
This money is allocated to initiatives which remove barriers to learning to ensure pupils reach their full potential both academically and socially.
In 2011-12 our school received 3500 pounds in Pupil Premium Funding.
Our 2012- 13 funding is 6300 pounds.
In 2013-2014, our total funding was 5030 pounds.
Our funding for 2014-2015 was 7800 pounds.
The funding has been used to help provide the following.

Measuring the impact of PPG spending
The school will evaluate the impact of the funding through:

- Pupil’s self-confidence and emotional development
The impact will be monitored through:
- The school’s tracking system
- Pupil progress meetings
- The school’s monitoring programme including lesson observations
- Parent consultations
- Discussion with pupils/pupil questionnaires
Schools, headteachers and teachers will decide how to use the Pupil Premium allocation, as they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for individual pupils.
