Pupil Premium Money at Bursar Primary Academy

What is the Pupil Premium?

The government have allocated the schools and academies additional monies based on the number of pupils in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM) either now or previously in the last 6 years.

Academies should decide how to best spend this money to support pupils' attainment and achievement.

A summary of the main barriers to educational achievement include:

  • A narrowed understanding of a breadth of worldly topics and concepts

  • A lack of concrete mathematical understanding to be able to apply into the abstract- problem solving and reasoning
  • A limited opportunities to apply word reading skills outside of the reading opportunities offered in the classroom

  •  Educational/ pastoral/ behaviour issues which impact upon learning.

The following shows how pupil premium money has been spent in the two previous financial years and how BPA intends to spend this money in 2017-2018. However, we intend to be flexible to pupils' needs and will allocate resources on a term by term basis. Our Pupil Premium strategy review is therefore continuous due to the individual needs of our pupils.

The impact of pupil premium money is detailed in school's data.
