Pupil Premium

At Clifton Hill School we are committed to ensuring the highest possible standards of education for all students equally.

All staff and Governors accept responsibility for ensuring ‘socially disadvantaged’ students’ needs are met within a caring and supportive environment.

The Governors reserve the right to allocate the pupil premium funding to support any pupil or groups of students the school has legitimately identified as being disadvantaged.

The Pupil Premium fund is allocated to the school based upon the number of children, in years 7 to 11, who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years, and children who are, or have been, looked after.

Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they feel fit. However transparency of expenditure is required. This report identifies how we have used the premium in order to ensure that parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of students covered by the Premium and the extra support they receive.

Principles for supporting socially disadvantaged students

  • At Clifton Hill School we ensure all learning opportunities meet the very special needs of our students. All of our students have a statement of Special Educational needs / Education Health and Care plan, are grouped according to preferred learning styles, and have access to a needs driven curriculum. We offer a variety of additional activities to support learning and enhance the curriculum.
  • In considering our provision for socially disadvantaged students we recognise the diversity of need, and therefore subsequent application of Pupil Premium will reflect the needs of individual classes, groups of students or individuals.
  • Other funding is allocated to support these activities from the delegated school budget.
