The school is allocated Pupil Premium funding for all children who are currently eligible for free school meals, have been eligible at some time during the past six years, are children of service personnel or are looked after children.
What is the school required to publish?
The school is required to show the amount of pupils eligible for funding and the amount we receive as a consequence of this. We also have to show how we intend to spend the money and the impact of the actions upon the children in receipt of funding, through our annual Pupil Premium Spending Plan.
The government provides additional funding to improve provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. Here at Halfway Junior School we encourage our children to be physically active frequently throughout the day, by providing them with opportunities to experience a variety of different sporting activities.
Coronavirus (COVID 19) catch-up premium 2020 - 2021
The government have said that: “Children and young people across the country have experienced unprecedented disruption to their education as a result of coronavirus (COVID-19). Those from the most vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds will be among those hardest hit. The aggregate impact of lost time in education will be substantial, and the scale of our response must match the scale of the challenge.” Therefore in the academic year 2020 – 2021, schools have been given funding in order to help children catch-up on any lost learning. Schools have the flexibility to spend their funding in the best way for their cohort and circumstances.
The ‘Catch-up Premium plan’ outlines how we are planning to support our pupils using this funding.
