The Pupil Premium Grant
Broadoak School was allocated £203,325 for 2018/19 which equates to 232 pupils.
The Pupil Premium is grant funding and is in addition to the school’s delegated budget. It is allocated to children from low-income families, children who are in local authority care, children adopted from local authority care and children with parent(s) in the Armed Forces. Each pupil is allocated £935.
The Purpose of the Pupil Premium Grant
The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.
Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable. It is for the school to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent. However, schools are held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families. Performance tables capture the achievement of the pupils covered by the Pupil Premium.
Catch Up Funding is provided to schools to assist them with intervening with and supporting students that failed to meet national expectations in English and / or Mathematics at the end of Key Stage 2.
