What is Pupil Premium?

The Government continues to give money to schools to help children from lower income families. This funding is called ‘Pupil Premium’. For every child registered, Beaver Road Primary School will receive a maximum of £1345 – A breakdown of how this is spent can be found on our current Pupil Premium Strategy, which is in the files section below.

Our 'Pupil Premium Promise':

As part of our Pupil Premium Promise, we ensure each child entitled to the premium receives their own Access To Learning Plan (ATL), tailored to their individual needs. The ATLs are written by class teachers, using their professional judgement alongside pupil and parent voice. ATLs contain detailed information about the child – an ‘about me’ section, their strengths and concerns and their current attainment. In addition to this, teachers outline targets and plans specific to that child. This can be seen by parents, which enables them to support their child at home. The ATLs are a working document and are reviewed regularly by teachers, parents and children.

In addition to this, Pupil Premium children are discussed at length in pupil progress meetings and starting this year, we have introduced strategy meetings in which we regularly review and share best practice and research with both school leaders and staff.

We offer numerous enrichment activities for Pupil Premium children who are currently receiving Free School Meals. We believe these opportunities encourage children to participate fully in all the school has to offer and gives them new experiences that they otherwise may not have access to.

At present, all children who currently receive free school meals are entitled to:

  • Join in the National Tutoring Programme (dependent on current attainment).
  • Priority access to all school led clubs, including multi-sports, free of charge.
  • Reduced music lessons for one musical instrument within an academic year - £4 Per Lesson, Reduced From £8.
  • Free school trips and planned workshops throughout the year.
  • The cost of residential trips reduced by half in Years 3, 4 & 5.
  • A fully funded place for the Year 6 residential trip to Ghyll Head.

Children who are identified as Pupil Premium are also encouraged to apply for leadership roles across the school such as house leaders and playground leaders. We know that these opportunities develop children’s confidence and life-long ambitions to become leaders of the future.
