Pupil Premium and Catch Up - Raising Attainment and Closing the Gap
At Hampstead School we have the highest expectations for all of our students and will support every student to ensure that they reach their full potential, both academically and socially.
In 2011-12, the Government launched its Pupil Premium funding, to help schools to support vulnerable pupils at risk of under achievement and address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers, by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.
The amount of funding the school receives is based upon the number students who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’) children who have been looked after continuously for more than 6 months and children of service personnel.
The information in this section, details how Hampstead School has spent the money in previous years and its impact, as well as proposals for future spending.
The school has also received additional funding to support the Catch Up from Covid-19 and have included information on how we have begun to and intend to continue spending these funds to support our students.
