Pupil Premium

Pupil premium was first introduced in 2011 and is allocated to schools to allow them to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years. It is specific funding for children from low-income families who were or are eligible or received free school meals, looked after children and those from families with parents in the Armed Forces.

Last year, 2019 – 2020, Bredenbury Primary School received £13,200  allocated as Pupil Premium.

The funding was used in the following ways:

  • To train all staff, in order that they are better able to meet the needs of individual pupils. THRIVE/Attachment Theory/Real PE
  • To purchase resources to enable interventions to be run effectively, if needed
  • To release curriculum leads to work regularly with individual and small groups of pupils to raise standards.
  • To provide extra teaching time for groups of pupils who would benefit from extra support.(These include gifted/talented pupils, those who had ever been in receipt of free school meals, and support for Y6 pupils as preparation for SATS.)

To offer additional curriculum opportunities for pupils both within and outside of normal school hours.

A small proportion of the funding may be used to subsidise or pay for educational trips or residential visits.

To pay for some after-school care, if needed.

To purchase a small number of assessment resources if required.

To subsidise the funding of breakfast or after-school care.

What difference has it made?

Pupil Premium funding ensured that teachers understanding of Thrive/Attachment Theory and Real PE was developed which resulted in a more holistic understanding of children and their well -being  and higher quality teaching, supporting the needs of all. Intervention sessions were set up to provide extra support for gifted/talented pupils, those in receipt of Free School Meals and Year 6 pupils in preparation for SATs. Funding paid for HLTA to teach these groups and additional resources.  Pupil Premium funding was used to develop additional curriculum opportunities in the form of lunchtime and after school clubs, where all children were encouraged to take part. A small proportion of the funding was used to where required to support Pupil Premium childrens' participation in educational visits and residential trips. Pupil Premium children were able to have a free breakfast club place if required.

 

In 2020 – 2021 £9,415 is allocated to the fund.
