Pupil Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.




The Pupil Premium is money that the government allocates to schools that have children from low-income families who are currently eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) or those that have children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. Eligibility for the Pupil premium has been extended to pupils who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years.


It ensures that the school can provide additional support to every child to help them reach their potential. The government, through Ofsted and the local authority, monitors the use and impact of the Pupil Premium.


2017/18 Pupil Premium allocation for Broadmeadow Junior School is £149,460.


Intervention work either from trained teachers or experienced teaching assistants, 1:1 or small group work


SMSC support including the pastoral team, attendance social worker, development of behaviour support and external support agencies (including Malachi)


SMSC activities such as music, extra-curricular clubs, theatre groups (including an anti-bullying presentation), trips and residential visits, year 6 transition workshops.


Curriculum and resources including speech and language therapists, Beanstalk reading project, maths workshops and visits / visitors linked to the Imaginative learning projects.




A significant proportion of the Pupil Premium funding will be used to support our staffing costs specifically targeted at Pupil Premium pupils. This includes 1:1 tuition and specialised intervention groups led by teachers and support staff in school. Including support offered by outside agencies such as Malachi and specialist speech and language provision. It will also help to fund our learning mentors to enable appropriate support to be given quickly to those that need it and for nurture groups to be put in place.


In addition to this, funding will also be put towards extracurricular activities such as music lessons, lunchtime and after school clubs to enhance the curriculum for all children. There will also be help available to support parents with the cost of school visits and residential trips linked to the curriculum so that all children can benefit from the experience these offer.


External support such as behaviour consultants, Beanstalk reading projects, maths curriculum workshops and theatre groups to enhance the engagement of children and hep to deliver an exciting curriculum will also be funded by Pupil Premium.


Parents who need the assistance of the Pupil Premium are supported discreetly and no child or family is identified.  The Head teacher will gladly discuss different families’ needs sensitively and in private.


We will review the impact of the measures listed to ensure they represent both value for money and have had a direct impact on children’s learning.


Impact of Pupil Premium funding 2016/17


The interventions that have been put in place are having an impact on the performance of those children eligible for free school meals and the gaps are beginning to close, most significantly in maths. More work is needed to ensure these gaps are smaller across all subject areas.


By focussing our spending on staffing this year, appointing an Assistant Head Teacher and developing the pastoral team, it has enabled us to address the needs of children more effectively giving a far greater engagement with school. 


The Pupil Premium funding has also enabled us to ensure that all children have been able to take part in school trips related to the curriculum, we have part funded the residential trip and given free music lessons – this has resulted in increased social skills and confidence, raised self-esteem and promoted enjoyment of school. This has also taken some pressure from parents, guaranteeing no children are left out from the range of experiences school has to offer.
