BRANDHALL PRIMARY SCHOOL
PUPIL PREMIUM STATEMENT
The Purpose of the Pupil Premium Grant
The Pupil Premium is grant funding, additional to the School’s Delegated Budget. It is allocated to children from low-income families, who are eligible for free school meals or have been eligible for free school meals during the previous six years. It is also allocated to children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months.
The Government believes that the Pupil Premium is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers. Each individual school is held accountable for how they use their Pupil Premium allocation, in order that the funding is targeted toward those pupils most in need.
It is for the school to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent. Each school is responsible for monitoring both the use of the funding and the impact it is having upon FSM pupils. New measures will be included in the performance tables that will capture the achievement of the pupils covered by the Pupil Premium.
Brandhall Primary School’s use of Pupil Premium (2013/14)
For the 2013-2014 academic year, the Pupil Premium allocation to Brandhall Primary School was £158,400 (176 FSM pupils at £900 per pupil).
Brandhall Primary School is committed to using Pupil Premium Funding in order to raise attainment amongst FSM pupils, in an inclusive and supportive environment. As part of this commitment we aim to promote and enhance social skills, independent learning and positive behaviour, in order to increase pupil progress.
