Pupil Premium

What is the Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is funding allocated to the school for pupils of low-income families who are known to be eligible for free school meals. In 2012 the Pupil Premium was extended to pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 Free School Meals measure).

Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked-after continuously for more than six months, and a smaller amount for the children of service personnel.

The main aim of the funding is to raise the attainment of disadvantaged children and young people.  The funding equates to £1320 per eligible primary school child and £1900 per pupil for looked-after children who have been looked after for 1 day or more, are adopted or are under a Special Guardianship Order or Residence Order.

Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit.  However, they are accountable for how they use the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families and the other target groups. 

School accountability for the pupil premium

The Pupil Premium is paid to schools as they are best placed to assess what additional provision their pupils need. Ofsted inspections will report on how the school’s use of the funding affects the attainment of their disadvantaged pupils.

Schools are held to account through performance tables, which include data on:

  • the attainment of the pupils who attract the funding
  • the progress made by these pupils
  • the gap in attainment between disadvantaged pupils and their peers

BWA Core Offer

BWA has a Core Offer for pupils eligible for Pupil Premium. The school will assess which relevant elements of the Core Offer will apply to eligible children, dependent on their achievement, progress and needs as identified by the school within the allocation designated for Pupil Premium.  The Core Offer for eligible pupils consists of the following:

  • academic interventions and support  to raise the attainment and progress in English –Reading, Phonics; Writing
  • academic interventions and support to raise the attainment and progress in Mathematics
  • enrichment activities to provide wider opportunities and enhance the self-esteem of pupils (these may include music and instrumental tuition discounts, free or discounted places at school-run clubs and external clubs where appropriate)
  • interventions and support through small group work to develop Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) skills
  • supporting in paying the voluntary contributions towards educational visits and activities
  • discounted fees for the BWA Breakfast club

As a staff team we assess the pupils needs and work together to deploy resources to secure appropriate support.

PE and Sport Premium 

Most publicly-funded schools with primary-age pupils receive the PE and sport premium, which is an additional funding amount. Schools must use this funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of physical education (PE), physical activity and sport they offer. The government advises that it can be used to:
 - improve the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity
 - raise the profile of PE and sport across the school
 - increase the confidence, knowledge and skills of staff in teaching PE and sport
 - offer a broader range of sports and activities to all pupils
 - increase participation in competitive sport
 - provide additional top-up swimming lessons for pupils who need them.
