Pupil Premium

What is the Pupil Premium?

Pupil Premium funding is additional funding allocated to all schools to support disadvantaged pupils. Haven High Academy receives pupil premium for: children that are cared for or adopted from care; children whose parents are in the armed forces; and for every pupil who has received free school meals over the past 6 years.

How can I find out if my child is entitled to the Pupil Premium funding?

Please look at the information on the Local Authority website for guidance and help.

How is the funding used?

Haven High Academy seeks to ensure the effectiveness of its use of the Pupil Premium. We recognise that barriers to achievement take a variety of forms and look for individual ways to support each child to achieve their very best. We do this by offering our children a wide range of opportunities and ensuring that these are accessible for everyone. We work with our families and colleagues to make sure everyone has high aspirations for all pupils. We ensure pupil premium children are well represented and have a voice on our school council. In addition, we make use of educational research such as The Sutton Trust-EEF Teaching and Learning Toolkit, in addition to a recent NLE external review to guide us on how best to use the school’s resources to improve the attainment of disadvantaged pupils.
