Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium funding?

Pupil Premium funding was introduced by the Department for Education in 2011, as additional funding allocated for pupils who receive Free School Meals. If a pupil has been eligible for Free School Meals at any point over the last 6 years or has been previously looked after, they will also be eligible. The aim of the funding is to be used to close attainment gaps between pupils from low-income and disadvantaged families.

You can find further detail about how we spend our Pupil Premium funding on the link below as well as information about how we have spent the funding during the academic year 2018-2019 and the impact it has had on learning.


At Bishop Bronescombe, we are determined that all pupils are given the best possible chance to achieve their full potential through the highest standards of Quality First Teaching, focussed support and access to an enriching curriculum which promotes character education and the development of the whole child.

Access to any additional provision which is funded by our Pupil Premium grant is available to all pupils within school who we know to be disadvantaged and vulnerable, irrespective of whether they are eligible for the funding. We aim to allocate the use of Pupil Premium funding following careful analysis of barriers to learning as well as the individual needs of our pupils. There is no expectation that all Pupil Premium funded pupils will receive identical support, rather support is tailored to the individual. However, all disadvantaged pupils are known to teachers so that they plan provision, teaching and intervention which promotes improved pupil outcomes through:

• Facilitating pupils’ access to education

• Facilitating pupils’ access to the curriculum

• Alternative support and intervention within the school
