Pupil Premium Report and strategy



What is pupil premium?

The Pupil Premium is funding for children in Reception to Year 6 who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), are looked after (LAC)  or have parents currently in the Armed Forces. Previously Looked After Children (PLAC) are funding in line with Pupil Premium Plus Funding.

From April 2012 the coverage of the Pupil Premium was widened to include those children eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (EVER 6). Every school is legally required to formally report how this funding has been used and the outcomes that have been achieved.

The full 2018-2019 report has been completed by the Senior Leadership Team and is now available upon request. In this document we report on the amount of pupil premium allocation, a summary of the main barriers to learning faced by eligible pupils in the school and how we will measure the impact on the pupils.  

Owing to the very small numbers of pupils at Brightwell cum Sotwell CofE Primary School, we wish to avoid identifying any particular children through the use of specific data within our report. As a school we analyse data to identify the barriers to learning, putting plans in place to address these barriers, measure the impact on pupil welfare and progress, and use this analysis to plan the best use for the monies received.

Planning for 2019-2020

The Pupil Premium grant for Brightwell children is further reduced for the academic year 2019-20. We plan to use the pupil premium money received to support small group interventions and additional learning support where needed. We will also use the money to subsidise pupils to attend enrichment clubs and activities that may not be otherwise accessible. 

 If you wish to have further information about how the pupil premium grant is allocated, please contact Fin Lewis,  headteacher.
