Pupil Premium Funding at The Hythe
The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to raise the attainment of specific groups of pupils and to close the gap between these groups and their peers.
The Pupil Premium was launched by the Government in 2011 – 2012, with allocation of funding being based on the numbers of pupils within the school who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM). From 2012 – 2013 it was expanded to include all children who have been eligible for FSM within the last 6 years. Additional grants are made for children who have been in Local Authority Care or who have been adopted within the last 3 years, as well as those children from Armed Service Personnel families. These families face unique challenges because of their mobility between schools.
It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.
All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received, how this is being used, and the impact of any work done - please see below for this information.
If your child does not have Free School Meals, but may be eligible because of your family's income level, please contact the office (in confidence) to register them. Even if you do not wish for your child to have the meals, applying for this would mean the school could still claim Pupil Premium funding that may be used to help your child.
