Pupil Premium 2017-18
The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and diminish the difference in attainment and progress between disdavantaged children and their peers.
Department for Education and Schools (2013):
‘The government believes that the pupil premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.’
Head teachers are given the responsibility of deciding how the pupil premium funding should be spent and they monitor the effectiveness of the provision.
For the financial year 2017-18 our total pupil premium allocation is £19680
Broadway Infant School Pupil Premium Strategy
Broadway school have taken their strategy from research (Sutton Trust, Education Endowment Trust etc.) and experience with success within school and other schools in the locality.
As a school there is prime focus on diminishing the difference in attainment between Pupil Premium (PP) pupils and all pupils and non -pupil premium pupils not only compared with Broadway pupils but with non -pupil premium children nationally. This is an objective in the School Development Plan. (2016 -2019). In order to diminish the differences between disadvantaged children and others we will ensure that:
- A high profile is given to disadvantaged pupils
- All staff are accountable for the progress of disadvantaged pupils
- The progress and attainment of all pupils at Broadway Infants is carefully tracked and analysed from a rich field of data in order to draw conclusions and develop action plans. Each Class teacher meets with School Leaders three times a year to discuss all their pupils and examine the best way forward for each individual.
- All interventions will be tailored to the needs of the child with some exceptions for provision listed below:All pupils entitled to Free School Meals (FSM) will be able to order a free basic school uniform per academic year consisting of two tee-shirts, one sweatshirt and one book bag. All Pupil Premium children can attend Breakfast club free however they still need to book in the normal way and are subject to the same restriction of numbers as other users.
