Pupil Premium

We will receive £30,000  Pupil Premium in 2016-2017. This additional money is generated by the number of pupils who are eligible for free school meals and children who are looked after by the local authority. At Hatfield Woodhouse Primary School we have used it for a range of additional resources.

  • We ensure that all classes have at least one teaching assistant to support these children during the mornings. Teaching assistants also deliver a wide range of intervention programmes to support reading, writing and maths to small groups of children in the afternoons.
  • We have  a Learning Mentor to support children who have barriers to their learning.
  • At Hatfield Woodhouse Primary School we are committed to providing a range of experiences which enhance the curriculum and pupils’ enjoyment of school. The pupil premium has been used to contribute towards the cost of these visits and visitors.

We are proud to have attained the Achievement for All Chartermark!
