What is Pupil Premium?
Pupil Premium was introduced in 2011 by the Government. It is additional funding from the Government 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.
The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years.
Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, and children of service personnel.
Barriers for Disadvantaged Pupils
At Bevington we have identified a number of barriers which disadvantaged pupils (those entitled to Pupil Premium) face through their time at Bevington Primary School. These are barriers which can impact on pupils’ attainment, progress and wellbeing, particularly in comparison to their peers.
The main barriers we have identified are:
- Decreased likelihood of fulfilling complete academic potential
- Catch-up, Levels of engagement in remote/on school education varied during the pandemic.
- Attendance and punctuality
- Speech, language and communication as well as the Prime Areas of learning in EYFs
- Increased risk of social and emotional difficulty
- Fewer opportunities outside of school for enrichment and wider personal development
