Pupil Premium


Pupil Premium funding is additional money that is provided to schools to support children who have received Free School Meals at any point in the past six years or if a child is adopted, Looked After or whose parents are in the Services. 

The money is used to make sure these children do the very best that they can at school and have the best quality education and opportunities.

 Key Principles

At Heybrook, our strategy is underpinned by the following principles:

  • “Good teaching is the most important lever schools have to improve outcomes for disadvantaged pupils” (EEF Guide to The Pupil Premium). We recognise that investing in teachers at all levels and improving the quality of teaching is key to improving outcomes for all children, and particularly disadvantaged children. This belief sits at the heart of our whole school improvement plan and our Pupil Premium strategy.
  • We recognise that children eligible for pupil premium funding are not a homogenous group. Their needs and areas for support are unique.
  • Many of the challenges pupils face today are different to those encountered previously, this is exacerbated by Covid, and as a result our strategy and the manner in which we support pupils should be flexible and adapted appropriately.

Below you will find our pupil premium strategy which outlines how we intend to spend the money this year, how we will measure the impact and when we will review it to make sure we are making the best use of it. We have a link governor (Kate Ford) responsible for monitoring the use and impact of this money.

If you would like a paper copy of this strategy, have any questions about how we use the money to support pupils at the school or the impact it has please do not hesitate to contact the school and ask to speak to Mr Doyle.
