The pupil premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. It is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), Looked after Children, children adopted from care and Service Forces children. It also includes pupils who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure). Pupil Premium funding is available to both mainstream and non-mainstream schools, such as special schools and pupil referral units.

If you think your child may eligible to receive this additional funding and support but are not sure whether the school are aware of this, please speak in confidence Mrs King or Mrs Billington in the school office. Alternatively, you can call Leicestershire County Council on 0116 305 5000 to check eligibility.
Schools are free to spend Pupil Premium funding according to how they feel each individual child can best be supported. Below are details of how we at Highcliffe Primary Academy have spent the funding in previous years and the impact it has had on learning. We also show our plan for spending in this academic year.
