The pupil premium additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.
Here at Brighton Avenue Primary School we truly believe that every child should be successful. Through good and outstanding teaching, children in our school will achieve very well. Our overall aim is for all children to shine and gain the opportunity to exceed expectations. The relentless drive to improve standards and the high expectations we have of each other will enable our children to exceed potential. To do this, our children need to be happy, respected, listened to and valued in a caring and inclusive learning environment, where they are nurtured, challenged and supported.
Pupil premium funding represents a significant proportion of our budget and the pupil premium policy outlines how we will ensure it is spent to maximum effect.
Additional support and resources have been made available for our children as a result of our pupil premium money. These interventions have had a significant impact on children’s attainment.
The recent KS 2 results show that the school is gaining strength. The results reflect the hard work of the children, staff, and the working partnership working with parents and a determination to ensure that EVERY child should be successful.
Our aim is to use the Pupil Premium Grant to narrow the gap between pupil groups. As a school we have a good track record of ensuring that pupils make good progress, but historically levels of attainment are lower for FSM (eligible for free school meals) – which is also a national trend.
Through targeted interventions we are working to eliminate barriers to learning and progress. Many children start school with very low attainment on entry and our aim is to ensure that they achieve accelerated progress in order to reach age related expectations and as they move through the school.
Targeted support is being provided through smaller class sizes, one-to-one and small group tuition throughout the school. These interventions support children in knowing what they are able to do and what they need to do to improve their work.
