Beaucroft Foundation School Pupil Premium Policy

What is the Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium was introduced by the Government in April 2011. It is money which is additional to main school funding.

Why did the Government introduce the Pupil Premium?

To:

  • address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantages reaches the pupils,
  • improve the progress and attainment of Looked After Children,
  • support the additional emotional and social wellbeing of children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.

How is the Pupil Premium allocated?

It is allocated to:

  • children from low income families who are currently know to be eligible for FSM or have been at any point in the last six years. (The funding allocated is based on the January 2020 school census figures for pupils registered as eligible for FSM in reception to Year 11),
  • children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months,
  • children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.

How can schools spend the pupil premium?

It is for schools to decide how the pupil premium is spent.

At Beaucroft the funding will be used to pay for:-

  • Enhanced group time e.g. Literacy, numeracy, self esteem groups.
  • Electronic aids to support communication and access to the curriculum e.g. iPads.
  • Additional teaching assistant time e.g. to support access to the curriculum, to narrow the gap between a pupil and their peers, to encourage interaction, to enable participation in activities beyond the school environment.
  • Residential visits
  • Extended Services; after school and holiday clubs, Parental Support and Advice, Early Bird.
  • Food and snacks. Class money.

What evidence to we have to provide on how the money has been spent?

Schools will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families.  New measures will be included in the performance tables that will capture the achievement of those deprived pupils covered by the Pupil Premium.

How will outcomes be monitored, evaluated and reviewed?

  • IEP targets
  • Staff meetings
  • Assessment documentation
  • Progress data
  • Annual Reviews / Reports

How much is allocated per pupil?

For the financial year 2020/21 the level of the premium is £1345.00 per pupil (Reception – Year 6) and £955.00 (Year 7 – Year 11) for those children eligible for Free School Meals (FSM). The Service Premium is £310.00 for those children whose parents are in the forces.
