Pupil Premium

The pupil premium is an allocation of funding provided to schools to support children who may be vulnerable to underachievement. The amount received is dependent on the number of children who are eligible and have claimed for free school meals at any time in the last six years. All schools are required to report on the amount of funding and how this is being used.

  • We organise teaching and learning at Hernhill in order to meet the needs of all children in the best way.
  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for children who belong to vulnerable groups and that socially disadvantaged children have their needs adequately assessed and met.
  • We recognise that not all children who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged and we also recognise that not all children that are disadvantaged have free school meals.
  • We will allocate Pupil Premium funding after a needs analysis to identify priority groups and individuals.

We have a total of 20 children eligible for PPG funding in 2023-24. This totals £36,655

 ATOM Learning

Free KS2 learning and 11+ preparation 
We work in partnership with Atom Learning, the leading online Key Stage 2 learning and 11+ preparation platform, to provide students who are eligible for Pupil Premium with free online learning and 11+ exam preparation.
What is the Kent Test (11+)?
This programme is designed to help children get familiar with the type of questions they may see on the 11+, and build exam technique and confidence. They'll be able to access KS2 and 11+ practice questions, learning resources, and practice papers through their Atom Home account. We know not everyone has access to the same support at home, and we hope this is an enjoyable and effective way of supporting Key Stage 2 progress. 
If your child is between 7 - 11 and has been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years (please check with the school office if you are not sure), please fill in the form by clicking the button below.
