Pupil Premium


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.

Our principles

- 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.


We propose to spend the grant on the following initiatives:

- Dedicated time in the Hive in a nurture group to develop confidence, risk taking skills and communication skills. Measured through pupils wellbeing and  involvement. 

- TA hours dedicated to training and providing effective focused intervention meeting the needs of the children. SoundsWrite, Numicom, social stories.

- Financial support to subsidise school clubs and educational visits.

- Increase the number of Tablets to provide computing opportunities and aid learning.

- Enrichment and aspirational activities to inspire and motivate PP learners

- Early Years intervention for children with speech difficulties and additional support for children who require Gross and fine motor development – Fizzy,   Clever Fingers

  -Deputy Headteacher and year group leader time dedicated to the analysis,  interpretation and implementation of PP initiatives.
