Pupil Premium Allocation

Hobart High School

Pupil Premium Statement

What is Pupil Premium Funding?

This is funding provided to all schools to raise achievement levels of pupils from low income families. Funding is paid to the school according to the number of pupils who:

  • Are, or have at any point in the in the last six years, receiving free school meals
  • Are looked after children (adopted or children in care)
  • Are children of Armed Forces Service personnel

Although the school is funded an amount per eligible pupil the Department for Education recognises that this funding should support the academic achievement of all pupil premium pupils as a whole, and so gives the responsibility to the school to use the money as it sees fit.

 

Activities Supported by Pupil Premium Funding

The school monitors the progress of all students as part of the regular assessment programme used across all subject areas. This identifies where interventions are required to provide students with additional support to ensure they can achieve as well as possible. Progress can be seen academically, emotionally and socially and pupil premium funding contributes to a variety of measures to support all students progress.
