Pupil Premium

Happisburgh Primary School

Pupil Premium 2016 – 2017

What is Pupil Premium?

Pupil Premium is allocated to schools for children of statutory school age from low income families who are eligible for Free School Meals(FSM), for children who are looked after by the local authority(LAC) and to children whose parents are currently serving in the Armed Forces.

Schools are able to spend the pupil premium as they see necessary to support the children who are in receipt of it. However, for accountability purposes, schools are required to show clearly how and where the money is spent.

During the Financial Year 2016 – 2017 Happisburgh School Primary received £22,860 in Pupil Premium.

The Headteacher and the Governors were conscious that this money would be used to inspire and improve the learning environment and learning opportunities for these children. Therefore Pupil Premium this year has been spent to allow the school to achieve the following:
