Pupil Premium Statement - September 2020

Pupil premium is funding provided to schools by the Government to support pupils within the following categories:

  • Pupils who are currently registered for Free School Meals · Pupils who have been registered for Free School Meals at any point during the last six years · Pupils in the care of a Local Authority · Pupils who are adopted but have been looked after for one day or more or were adopted from care on or after 30 December 2005 and left care under a Special Guardianship Order on or after 30 December 2005 -a Residence Order on or after 14 October 1991
  • Pupils whose parents are serving with the UK Armed Forces


How do we encourage parents to register their child’s eligibility for free school meals (FSM)?

There are a number of practices schools can adopt to encourage parents to register their children. In particular, we let parents know:

  • That registering for FSM is confidential and their peers, and their child’s peers, need not know they have applied;
  • What registering for FSM involves and what it means for their child, including the fact that taking up the meal is recommended but optional;


Opportunities for communicating these messages to parents include:

  • Sending letters to parents explaining FSM, its link to the Pupil Premium and how to apply – sending more than once to ensure all parents see it;
  • Adding reminders to register for FSM in any regular newsletters or e-bulletins to parents;
  • Texting all parents asking them to contact the school office if they receive benefits, as they may be able to help secure extra funding for the school;
  • Ensuring teachers or parent liaison staff are talking to new parents about signing up for FSM when they carry out home visits or when parents visit the school


Intervention strategy

At The Redhill Trust, we use funding in a range of ways to support all pupils including those who qualify for pupil premium. Each year we put together a comprehensive plan of interventions that we feel will best allow our all of pupils to meet their full potential. At the end of the academic year we then analyse the impact of the interventions to ensure they provide good value for money and that progress has been made. We believe that all students have the right to outstanding teaching and targeted intervention where required.

At Hall Park Academy we work to:

1. Monitor the progress of all students

2. Provide effective intervention for all students as required

3. Check to ensure all Pupil Premium students are supported to make expected progress as a specific group as part of our wider intervention
