The Pupil Premium Grant is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement.
These include children who are (or have been at any point in the previous 6 years) entitled to free school meals, those looked after by the local authority and those children either adopted or placed under a special guardianship order.
All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received, how this is being used and what the impact of the interventions have been.
The below PDF gives details of how we have used our Pupil Premium funding for disadvantaged children and the impact of this spending.
Covid-19 Catch-up Premium
In 2020 the government announced additional funding of £80 per pupil for the 2020-2021 academic year to support children and young people to catch up lost time after the school closure in first national lockdown.
This funding is especially important for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds.
PE and Sport Premium
In 2017 the government reviewed the PE and Sport Premium spend and allocated all schools (with 17 or more pupils) £16,000, plus an additional £10 per pupil.
At Hightown Primary we believe that sport and more pertinently, participation in sport, supports the development of all of our children not physically, but mentally and socially.
Sports Premium Offer 2023-2024
Our Year 6 pupils aim to achieve the 25m swimming assessment. Unfortunately due to the school closure in 2019-2020, there is no swimming assessment data for that cohort.
We have secured high level sports coaching to enrich our pupils experience of all sporting activities.
Hightown is a Good School
Ofsted encourages parents to share their views about their child's school. Please visit 'Parent View' to tell them about Hightown.

School Performance Tables
The government will not publish KS2 school level data for the 2021 to 2022 academic year. They have archived data from 2018 to 2019 academic year, because they recognise that the data from that year group may no longer reflect current performance.
The last published set of data for 2018 - 2019 is available below.

The intention of the SEND Information Report is to improve choice and transparency for families. It will also be an important resource for professionals and will inform the joint commissioning for children and young people with SEND by setting out in a single place what is available locally.
The SEND Information Report must work together with children and young people, parent/carers and with local services, including the voluntary and community sector, to develop their offer and keep it under review.
The SEND Information Report includes information about the provision the local authority expects to be available in its own area for children and young people with SEND and outside of its area for the children and young people for whom it is responsible.
The Inspire Learning Partnership is an inclusive trust where we focus on the wellbeing and progress of every child and where all members of our community are of equal worth. We believe that the Equality Act provides a framework to support our commitment to valuing diversity, tackling discrimination, promoting equality of opportunity and fostering good relationships between people. It also ensures that we continue to tackle issues of disadvantage and underachievement of different groups.
