Disadvantaged children

What is Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011. It is allocated to children who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings or who have been eligible in the past 6 years (EVER 6). Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months (PLAC pupil premium) and children of service personnel (known as the service premium).

Who decides on how the money is spent?

In most cases the Pupil Premium is paid directly to schools, being allocated to them for every pupil who receives free school meals. Schools decide how to use the funding, as they are best placed to assess what their pupils need. However, at Beaufort we will liaise with families to ensure that we are getting the best impact out of the funding for each child.

What can the money be spent on?

The school can spend money on additional staffing, new resources, support for specific groups of children, improving the school environment and extra-curricular activities as well as staff professional development. 

How will the school measure the impact of the spending?

A Beaufort Primary School, the usual cycle of data collection and the monitoring and tracking of the cohort’s attainment will be used to inform pupil progress and enable the early identification of need, support and appropriate intervention. Review meetings take place termly where the school will review the impact of actions taken and will plan for how the funding will be specifically allocated over the next phase. When selecting pupils for Pupil Premium target groups, the school will look at all pupils across the school. There are some pupils who are not eligible for PP who will benefit from these groups if their needs are similar.
