At Beanfield Primary School, Pupil Premium funding is carefully targeted to ensure it is spent on supporting our disadvantaged children. We are able to clearly identify how the money has been spent and how it will be used in the future to support our pupil premium strategy. We aim to continue to seek ways to encourage parents and carers to apply for free school meals where pride, stigma or changing circumstances act as barriers.
At Beanfield we have planned our spending carefully to ensure that it is spent to maximum effect. This meant making informed decisions about our spending, such as:
- Ensuring that spending is directly linked to gaps in attainment;
- Making use of our own data to expand existing interventions;
- Making sure there is at least good teaching on a day-to-day basis;
- Making use of research when evaluating interventions and considering the implementation of new interventions.
All staff are aware of areas for development in the school in terms of subjects, year groups, and they know which children are focus children.
Money is used to benefit all pupil premium children and supports higher as well as lower ability children by extending provision on offer.
Have your financial circumstances recently changed?
Do you think that you might be eligible for Pupil Premium?
If you are, then your children will receive free school meals all the way through Primary School (not just KS1).
This funding is known as Pupil Premium and brings in up to an additional £1320 per child that is registered.
Beanfield can use the extra funding to improve the quality of our children’s education. This could include: exciting subsidised trips for our children; visitors to our school that enhance the curriculum; additional training for staff or employing additional staff to help us meet all of our children’s needs.
Your child might be eligible for Pupil Premium funding if you receive one of the following benefits:
-Income Based Job Seekers Allowance
-Child Tax Credit Only (with income up to £16,190) with no element of Working Tax Credit
-National Asylum Seekers Support
-Guarantee Element of the State Pension Credit
-Employment and Support Allowance (income related)
-Universal Credit (income dependant)
