Pupil Premium


The Pupil Premium Grant is additional funding provided to schools for supporting more disadvantaged pupils in order to ensure they benefit from the same opportunities as  other children. There are three categories of children that qualify for pupil premium:

  • Children who are eligible for free school meals (FSM);
  • Looked after children;
  • Armed forces children.


Please click on the link below if you wish to apply for free school meals for your child (Years 3-6). Not only will successful applicants save hundreds of pounds in school dinner costs each year, but you will also be eligible for half-price school trips. The Pupil Premium Grant is also used in many other ways, including the cost of employing extra staff and running support groups, as well as  the purchase of specific resources to help improve learning.


Parents of children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 can also trigger funding to the school for the Pupil Premium Grant, despite the fact that they already receive free school meals. Please speak to Mrs Kent in the school office who will provide you with an application form to do this.



Also, please download below the Pupil Premium Report for Hereward Primary School which shows the performance data for the pupil premium grant eligible children for the last school year and a summary of spending for 2021/22.



The impact of the Pupil Premium Strategy is measured according to data analysis termly and particularly at the end of each school year.



We review our Pupil Premium Strategy annually, so our next date for review will be July 2022 following the publishing of our end of key stage results.
