Pupil Premium

Bramley Sunnyside Junior School receives a Pupil Premium Grant for each child who is entitled to receive Free School Meals or who has been entitled over the last six years, and for any Looked After Children or Service Children.

For each financial the Pupil Premium is allocated to schools based on those pupils on roll in the January census that are known to have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) on any pupil level census in the last six years.    

Pupil Premium is also allocated to children designated as Looked After and those children identified as being Service Children.  Funding is allocated to address the current underlying inequalities between disadvantaged pupils and their peers, by ensuring that funding reaches the pupils who need it most.

Principles

We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of the children at Bramley Sunnyside Junior School.

We ensure that appropriate provision is made for children who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of children entitled to free school meals and children who are Looked After are adequately assessed and addressed.

Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals.  Limited funding and resources means that not all children receiving free school meals will be in receipt of pupil premium interventions at one time.

Provision

The range of provision the Governors consider include:

  • Increasing support staff in school thus improving opportunities for accelerating progress through targeted interventions.
  • Providing small group work with an experienced teacher focused on overcoming gaps in learning.
  • 1:1 support.
  • Additional teaching and learning opportunities provided through school based learning, external school partners and extended services.

All our work through the pupil premium is aimed at accelerating progress moving children to at least age related expectations. The funding enables us to provide the extra support our children need in order that they reach their full potential.

3 Year Pupil Premium Strategy Statement 2019-2022

The DfE understands the difficulty in evaluating the pupil premium's impact in the 2019 to 2020 academic year as this will present difficulties as a result of a reduced number of children attending school between March and July 2020.  We will monitor and report on the grant's impact at the end of the current financial year.
