Key Information

Pupil Premium

Halfway Junior School received £47,520 in 2017/18 and is currently in receipt of £55,020 in 2018/19, allocated from Pupil Premium funding.  


Pupil premium is additional funding received by schools for each pupil from disadvantaged families or background. It is allocated to schools based on the number of children who come from lower-income families.

At around £1,300 per eligible pupil, this money is for schools to decide how to use in order to improve educational attainment of children from less privileged backgrounds. The pupil premium has the potential to have a great impact on the attainment, and future life chances of pupils. 


Schools can choose to allocate this funding as they wish, which could impact upon a greater quantity of pupils than the Pupil Premium currently funds.


Halfway Junior School have allocated the funding in a variety of ways with the aim being to close the gap in attainment for pupils who receive this funding including:


  • Free breakfast club each morning to ensure a good start to the school day


  • Additional academic after school clubs e.g. Y6 targeted support, booster clubs, homework club and Easter School.


  • Additional after school clubs covering a range of different areas e.g. film club, sports clubs, gardening clubs, choir, knit and knatter, change 4 life, healthy eating, to allow children a greater wealth of experiences


  • The recruitment of two Learning Mentors to reduce barriers to learning, improve children’s behaviour, promote emotional and social development and work closely with our families.  Support offered includes bespoke individual plans, group work and in class mentoring.


  • Additional targeted SEAL/PHSE groups to increase pupil’s resilience and motivation


  • Appropriate interventions to boost progress in core subjects e.g. literacy and numeracy


  • Increasing parental involvement through working collaboratively to support the pupil and family.


  • Holiday school sessions for pupils


  • Further training for staff to develop the provision of Quality First Teaching, through focusing on one aspect e.g. differentiation, meta-cognition, peer tutoring etc. which can be effective at raising pupil attainment for a low cost


  • Resources to support learning e.g boy friendly reading corners.


In addition to these plans school will:

  • Regularly publicise to parents the current route to claiming free school meals.
