Pupil Premium


The PPG is allocated to support children who are currently known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM), or have been over the last 6 years. The purpose of the grant is to raise attainment and remove barriers to learning. The grant is calculated using data from the census taken in January.

Brandling Primary School Objectives

  • To raise the emotional well-being of targeted individuals with pupil premium
  • To address identified gaps in attainment of pupils who receive pupil premium
  • To raise the proportion of PP children who are exceeding ARE
  • To ensure children are on track to make expected (or better) progress by the end of Key Stage 2.

How will Ofsted evaluate our use of pupil premium?

  1.      Inspectors are required to consider the impact of the pupil premium
  2.     Inspectors will look at the achievement of pupils eligible for the pupil premium
  3.     Pupils eligible for the pupil premium should be making sustained progress
  4.     School leaders should ensure that the pupil premium is being used effectively

We continue to target the identified  objectives above and improve the learning of our pupils by:

  • Embedding key objectives for target setting purposes to ensure a greater proportion of children achieve ARE and mastery.  
  •  Using Bloom's taxonomy of questions to assist us to compose questions on different levels of thinking.  
  • Using recent government research embedded including BAD(basic, advancing and deep) forms of differentiation to raise achievement and mastery.  
  • Using outstanding forms of formative assessment to ensure it is outstanding, further increasing pupils' attainment and achievement.  
  • Using new PIVATS tool and use of the data analysis program to evidence progress.  
  • Regularly reviewing interventions to ensure impact of targeted support on all pupils including disadvantaged.  
  • SMT continue to use SIMS tracking to track progress of groups of pupils.  
  • Using Pupil premium money for children targeted to achieve above ARE to ensure value for money from staffing is monitored.  
  • Use of Kalmer counselling services to provide one to one sessions and group work to targeted individuals.  
  • Termly attendance treat to reward 100% attendance.
