Pupil Premium

Hardingstone Academy is in the village of Hardingstone, Northampton. We have extremely high aspirations and ambitions for all our pupils, and we are determined to ensure that all our pupils are given every chance to realise and achieve outcomes reflecting their full potential.

At Hardingstone Academy we recognise each pupil as an individual and understand that there are many different barriers to learning. To ensure that our pupils flourish we set individual and achievable  targets for all children, including those with behavioural, emotional and physical needs.

Pupil premium funding represents a very small proportion of our overall budget, however we are committed to providing personalised targeted support to ensure that it is spent to maximum effect for identified pupils.

Pupil Premium - extra support for your child

You can apply for the Pupil Premium which provides your child's school with additional funding to support them. If you are in receipt of any of the below benefits please apply. 

If you are in receipt of any of the following, your child may be eligible for free school meals.

  • Income Support
  • Income based Job Seekers Allowance
  • Income based Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • Child Tax Credit, with no element of Working Tax Credit, and a household income below £16,190 (as assessed by HM Revenue and Customs)
  • Guarantee Element of State Pension Credit
  • Universal Credit

If a child resides in a local authority care home they will not qualify for free school meals. This is because government funding has already been allocated to fund their meals.
