Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium funding?

Pupil Premium is a Government fund of additional money given to schools to support the education of children who are entitled to free school meals or who are looked after children or Forces children.  The money is spent on improving the progress and attainment of these children, improving their experience of education and ensuring that all children have an equal opportunity to succeed and learn.  The amount of money school gets is dependent on the number of children in school who are entitled to pupil premium support.

How is Pupil Premium spent at Holly Hill?

The total amount of funding the school receives is proportionally linked to the number of children who are, or who have ever been, eligible for Free School Meals. Schools are required to publish details on how the pupil premium is being spent to improve the attainment of the identified pupil premium children. At Holly Hill, we strongly believe that every child has the right to achieve and reach their full potential and that every child should be given the opportunity to access a variety of learning resources in order for them to succeed.  Please click on the documents below to find out how we are currently using the Pupil Premium funding to make a difference.
