Pupil Premium

Pupil premium grant (PPG) expenditure:

Pupil Premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England, introduced in April 2011, to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers. The pupil premium is allocated to children who are looked after by the local authority, those who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (also known as Ever 6 FSM) and for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces. The amount of funding provided for pupil premium per child in 2016-17 varies as follows:

Quality first teaching is paramount at Harefield Primary School. We ensure that we meet the needs of all pupils through the provision of a creative curriculum, engaging teaching strategies and a rigorous assessment procedure which is regularly evaluated.

 

We ensure that appropriate provision is provided to assist in narrowing gaps between disadvantaged children and their peers, particularly in English and Maths. However, we also recognise the importance of supporting and nurturing the development of the whole child.

 

We recognise that not all deprived families are registered to receive free school meals and we reserve the right to allocate Pupil Premium funding to support specific pupils where we see necessary.

Pupil premium spending is allocated based on the needs of specific pupils.
