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

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
