Pupil Premium funding

Schools receive additional funding for any pupils who have been eligible for free school meals during the last 6 years, pupils who are looked after by the local authority or who are in care and for pupils from families where a parent serves in the armed forces.  

 

Schools have the freedom to spend the Premium, which is in addition to the underlying schools budget, in a way they think best to support the raising of attainment of the most vulnerable pupils and close the gap with other pupils in school. 

 

At Bramley St Peter's we use the funding in a range of different ways. Please see the following documents for more details of how the money is spent and the impact it has had.

 

We support narrowing the gap that still exists between pupils from disadvantaged and more affluent backgrounds and for pupils to reach their full potential by overcoming barriers to learning. For our children these barriers include:

 

  • Pupil premium children can have a narrow range of vocabulary and poor speaking and listening skills. These limits in language can have an effect on academic progress in both English and Maths.

 

  • Pupil premium children can lack basic skills such as being able to write their own name (coming into Reception), accurate spelling, knowledge of maths facts and efficient calculating methods.

 

  • There can be a lack of enrichment opportunities outside of school compared to non pupil premium children due to financial constraints or a lack of opportunities made available to them.

 

  • Attendance rates for some pupils eligible for pupil premium are low. This reduces their school hours which can have an impact on attainment and limit pupil’s aspirations.


To ensure that whatever barriers the children face or background they come from they are given the opportunity to achieve their best, we prioritise staff training to develop the quality of teaching and offer a wide variety of trips, visitors and clubs. This gives all the children the best chance to develop both academically and socially. Please see our policy for more information.
