The Henry

Disadvantaged Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium grant is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England. It’s a school-level grant that gives schools extra resources to help them meet challenges, including those arising from deprivation.

It’s allocated for schools to:

  • improve the academic outcomes of Disadvantaged pupils of all abilities
  • close the attainment gap between Disadvantaged pupils and their peers across the country

The needs of all pupils should be assessed and the grant used to make maximum impact in the school. Pupil needs will differ and will cost differing amounts to address. Please click here for further information.

Here at The Henry Beaufort school we are not a one size fits all school and we follow the recommended tiered approach to planning Pupil Premium funding focusing on quality Teaching and Learning. To view the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) FAQs please click here.


Alongside this we will develop the Cultural Capital of all students, so will use the Disadvantaged Pupil Premium funding to support with parental contributions towards trips where possible. This will be taken on a case by case basis as we recognise that funding all trips for all Pupil Premium students in full would not be sustainable whilst providing the academic provisions. Cultural Capital is motivated by the desire to see more Disadvantaged students succeed and narrow the gap in their educational performance.  All students should be exposed to opportunities and experiences beyond the classroom.  These opportunities and experiences will help students to broaden their horizons and develop and challenge them personally.
