Pupil Premium

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.

Schools receive funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years. The Pupil Premium is also provided for children in care who have been looked after continuously for at least six months.

Headteachers and school leaders can decide how to use the Pupil Premium.

Parents are strongly encouraged to register their child as eligible for FSM so that each school receives their maximum Pupil Premium entitlement. For more information, follow this link to the HertsDirect website.

Children eligible for the pupil premium grant may face a range of barriers to learning, including emotional, behavioural and social challenges, low self-esteem and low aspirations.  As with other children, some may have general learning difficulties such as dyslexia, autism or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). These may impact upon the pupils' learning and school life in general.  They will therefore, require different levels of intervention and support. This targeted intervention is put into place in order to diminish the difference in attainment and progress of disadvantaged children.

The Leys strive to expect the best outcomes for all pupils and we see it as part of our mission to do what we can to redress this inequality. At The Leys, the Pupil Premium funding is focused on supporting this through raising both attainment and aspiration and to address the inequality of opportunity.
