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 address identified gaps in attainment of pupils who receive pupil premium funding.

•Use pupil premium money to increase provision of targeted intervention and wave 2 and 3 groups of children for identified pupils

•To further enhance the effectiveness of monitoring and evaluation of the leadership team, to achieve successful outcomes for those whom the pupil premium supports

•To ensure children are on track to make expected (or better) progress in terms of levels and average points score 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
