In 2011/12 the Government launched the Pupil Premium funding allocation to schools.
This money is given to schools based on the numbers of pupils in the school who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM). From 2012/13 it has been expanded to include all children who have been eligible for FSM within the last 6 years, service children and Looked After Children.
- We organise teaching and learning at Herne in order to meet the needs of all of our children in the best way.
- We ensure that appropriate provision is made for children who belong to vulnerable groups and that socially disadvantaged children have their needs adequately assessed and met.
- We recognise that not all children who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged and we also recognise that not all children that are disadvantaged have free school meals.
- Not all interventions are measureable in terms of attainment outcomes, but research shows that wider opportunities and extended provision can raise self-esteem and increase learner confidence.
