    What is the Pupil Premium?

    Guidance from DFE

    • In April 2011, the government introduced the Pupil Premium (PP) to raise the attainment of disadvantaged young people. It is available for any student who has been FSM registered, Looked After (CLA) or those who are in the Armed Forces during the last six years. It is also available for students who have been adopted.
    • Government guidelines state that it is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent since schools are best placed to assess the provision needed.
    • Schools will be held accountable for how the additional funding is used to support the attainment and progress of disadvantaged students. There are measures in performance tables that explicitly measure how wide the gap is between disadvantaged and Non-disadvantaged Pupils.
    • Funds can be spent as the school wishes so long as the school can evidence that it is achieving expected outcomes. Funding is received on a financial year basis.

    Our Aims at Brigshaw for Pupil Premium Students

    • To develop a culture of achieving and ‘belonging’ in school, narrowing any ‘gaps’ in achievement, attendance, behaviour and contribution to the wider school.
    • To cultivate traditional values of respect, good behaviour and caring for self and others
    • To increase interactive and participatory learning, ensuring access to curriculum
    • To develop pupils’ social, emotional and behavioural skills.
    • To broaden pupils’ horizons by offering experiences and opportunities they would not otherwise get
    • To build pupils’ repertoire of spoken and written language.

    Identifying and Reporting on Pupil Premium

    Each teacher can access information about Pupil Premium through SIMS, with marksheets clearly indicating the cohort. The Pupil Premium Cohorts can also be found on SISRA.

    The Assistant Principal for Inclusion and Cohort Provision will provide a termly report for Headteacher and Governors explaining the Pupil Premium Expenditure and the Impact on Pupil Outcomes.
    There will be an annual report on the website.
