INTRODUCTION The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools with pupils on roll that are known to have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any time in the last six years; that are children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months; or that are children of service personnel. Schools have the freedom to spend the Premium, which is additional to the underlying schools budget, in a way they think will best support the raising of attainment for the most vulnerable pupils.

PRINCIPLES The targeted and strategic use of the Pupil Premium will support us in achieving our vision. In using the Premium at Muswell Hill, we will adhere to the following principles:
  • We will ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all the pupils.
  • We will ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups. This includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed.
  • In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged.
  • We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or group of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.
  • Pupil Premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis, which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals.
At Muswell Hill Primary we carefully consider the use of our Pupil Premium money. This statement shows our intervention programmes with the impact that was seen and the itemised cost of delivery.
