Brunswick Park Pupil Premium Statement 2017
Pupil Premium Funding began in 2011 and is allocated by the government at the start of each financial year for children from families with particular needs (low income families, children in care or those with parents in military service). National evidence shows these pupils achieve less well in comparison to others and the funding is provided for schools to diminish this difference in attainment. The DfE states that the funding is to be spent helping children with social, emotional and educational needs and is not ring fenced for individual pupils in order that schools may achieve the maximum impact from this funding. Schools are to spend the money wisely and transparently , with details included on the school website. Brunswick Park Primary and Nursery School takes these responsibilities very seriously and aims to provide:
- Nurture for relationships and scaffolds for emotional development
- Support for transitions and change through positive emotional literacy and skills
- Address barriers to development and provide opportunities beyond the core curriculum
- Ensure policies and procedures enable pupils to reach their full potential.
At Brunswick Park, we always aim to ensure that every pupil makes the best possible progress from their starting points so that they fulfil their potential. Each year, we review the impact of our pupil premium spending on pupil progress and attainment so that we can see whether we are spending pupil premium money in a way which maximises pupils’ achievement and wellbeing. We aim to have ‘diminished the difference’ between the achievement of pupils eligible for pupil premium and their peers so that by the time they move on to secondary school they are achieving in line with their peers and so they are happy, confident and ready for the next challenge.
