Is your child eligible for Pupil Premium Funding? 

It’s important to know that a pupil does not need to have a school dinner, but you should check to see if you are eligible for Free School Meals.

Welcome to the Pupil Premium Section

I am passionate about my role as lead for Pupil Premium at Hunslet Carr Primary School and I hope you find this section informative.

Over the next few pages, you will develop a rich flavour of what Pupil Premium is, what it means for OUR children and families as well as the vision we share...

Pupil Premium is money that is provided by the Government to support pupils who have received free school meals within the last six years, have parents who are in the armed forces or are children looke after.  The Pupil Premium money is additional to the main school funding and is seen by the Government as a vehicle of addressing the inequalities and disadvantages that can exist for some children, resulting in 'diminishing differences'.

We have the freedom to target our Pupil Premium allocation in ways we see most advantageous to support the raising of attainment and progress of the most vulnerable children, as we are best placed to assess exactly what additional support and provision is needed.

As a school with nearly 60% of children eligible for Pupil Premium, I work closely with our knowledgeable Inclusion team, dedicated staff members and external consultants to maximise our use of the funding. We monitor and evaluate our provision every half term, considering external research from sources such as the Teaching and Learning Toolkit (Education Endowment Foundation) as well as in-school data and feedback. A 'Value for Money' document is created, shared with Governors and provision is applied accordingly.
