Pupil premium

The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals, those looked after by the local authority and the children of armed service personnel. The intended effect of this funding is to accelerate progress and raise attainment.

All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received and how this is being used. Once information is available, the impact of the funding should also be reported. 

Our pupil premium strategy is reviewed annually, with an annual action plan published online in the Autumn term.  Our current strategy is due to be reviewed in July 2022.

Hassocks Infant School Pupil Premium Intent 

At Hassocks Infant school we are committed to raising the achievements of vulnerable groups. We strive for all children to develop a love of learning and acquire skills and abilities to support them to reach their potential at all stages of life. We do this by: 

  • Providing teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils. 
  • Ensuring appropriate provision is made for pupils who are part of vulnerable groups. 
  • Being committed to the needs of socially disadvantaged children, ensuring these are assessed and addressed. 
  • Recognising that not all children who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. 
  • Being committed to meeting children’s pastoral, social and academics needs within a caring and nurturing environment.

Hassocks Infant School 3-Year intended outcomes

  • A rich curriculum is in place which meets the needs of all children and encourages a love of learning.
  • Our school values are embedded in all areas of school life, equipping children with the skills to succeed in life.
  • Highly effective professional development ensures that the school sustains the highest standards of teaching and learning.
