The Pupil Premium is an additional grant given to schools to support groups of children who may be disadvantaged. The funding is to support schools to close the gap in attainment between groups of children and their peers.
The information below details how the money was spent for the academic year and the outcomes for the groups of children. It also includes the proposed spend for the current year.
Over the past few years, we have seen a rise in the number of pupils who join us from Service Families. To support these children we have employed Mrs Catherine Venny as a Service Families Support Worker. Mrs Venny provides support to Service children who are transferring to and from Hilmarton Primary School, and emotional support if required; for example, when parents are deployed. Mrs Venny is a strong advocate for children from Service Families in all areas of school life and ensures that their needs and opinions are heard.
