Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Funding

Pupil Premium is funding given to schools so that additional support can be given to disadvantaged students in order to close the attainment gap between them and their peers.

Pupil Premium is in addition to main school funding and is the current method to address the underlying inequalities between children eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) at any point in the last six years (known as Ever 6 FSM) and their peers.  Schools also receive funding for children who are ‘looked after’ / or have previously been looked after and the children of service personnel.

Brockington College is allocated Pupil Premium funding each year in addition to the main school budget.  Interventions for each student are decided on a needs-led basis.  This meant that students are able to benefit from more than one intervention at any one time.  The EEF Teaching and Learning Toolkit is used amongst other evidence available, to provide the college up-to-date guidance on how to improve the attainment of our disadvantaged students and to inform our planning of appropriate interventions.
