Pupil Premium is additional funding which is allocated to schools in order to increase the attainment and wellbeing of vulnerable or disadvantaged pupils. It is up to our school to decide how best to spend the funding we have been allocated and we are required to publish our strategy for using the pupil premium on our school website.
At Heskin Pemberton’s we have high aspirations for all our pupils. As a school, we aim to provide the best quality primary education for each and every child and we seek every opportunity to enable our pupils to reach their full potential.

Children and young people across the country have experienced unprecedented disruption to their education as a result of coronavirus (COVID-19). Those from the most vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds will be among those hardest hit. The aggregate impact of lost time in education will be substantial, and the scale of our response must match the scale of the challenge.
We know that we have the professional knowledge and expertise in the education system to ensure that children and young people recover and get back on track. Returning to normal educational routines as quickly as possible will be critical to our national recovery, and the government intends for schools and colleges to fully open in September.
The government has announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up. This includes a one-off universal £650 million catch-up premium for the 2020 to 2021 academic year to ensure that schools have the support they need to help all pupils make up for lost teaching time.
Schools’ allocations will be calculated on a per pupil basis, providing each mainstream school with a total of £80 for each pupil in years reception through to 11.
