The Government introduced the Pupil Premium Grant in April 2011. The Pupil Premium is allocated to children who are known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), service children, adopted children and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. This also includes pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure). The grant, which is additional to main school funding, is seen by the government as being the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free schools meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers, by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.
Schools can decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils at thier school.
At Brimscombe CE Primary School we support all our pupils. We do this by providing high quality teaching in all classes, supplemented by interventions to support or challenge learners as and when required. The headteacher and Governing Body regularly monitor the impact of all spending including the Pupil Premium.
