Pupil Premium

Disadvantaged Strategy Statement 2018 -19

Data for all and disadvantaged pupils 2018

IDSR 2018


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.

In most cases the Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.

Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support these pupils. New measures will be included in the performance tables that will capture the achievement of those pupils covered by the Pupil Premium.

Key facts

  • The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from families who are currently known to be eligible for FSM in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months.
  • The level of the premium in 2018-19 is £1320 per pupil for pupils eligible for free school meals (FSM) and for pupils in care who have been continuously looked after for six months or were previously looked after (£2340).
  • Eligibility for the Pupil Premium is extended to pupils who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last 6 years. At Broadfields, there are 182 children eligible and therefore our total funding is £240,240 (2018).
  • At Broadfields, we have used the funding to provide -
    • a Number Counts Teacher, 
    • small group teaching and 1 to 1 tuition in English and Maths
    • a range of trained support staff to implement key interventions which fit the specific needs of our children such as Wave 3,  15 minutes a day reading, Boosting Reading Potential, Hi Five (writing intervention), One to One Tutoring, Springboard Maths and First Class at Number.  
    • a Learning Mentor to work with more vulnerable pupils
    • Broadening Minds enrichment activities
    • subsidised school trips for eligible pupils (both day and residential)
    • half price uniform for eligible pupils
