Pupil Premiums

Pupil Premium Grant (PPG)

Background Information

Introduced in April 2011, the Pupil Premium is a Government initiative that provides additional funding aimed at students from deprived backgrounds.  Research has indicated that students from deprived backgrounds underachieve compared to their peers. The Pupil Premium is provided in order to support these students in reaching their potential by accelerating their progress.

The Government has used students entitled to Free School Meals and those who are looked after as an indicator for deprivation.  They have provided a fixed amount of funding to schools per student, based upon the number of pupils that have registered for Free School Meals (currently or within the previous six academic years) and those that have been looked after by the Local Authority (within the previous six months).

The amount of Pupil Premium a school receives is based on the previous year's children who are entitled to this extra funding.  As 2016/17 is our first academic year as a brand new academy, we will not receive any PPG until the academic year of 2017/2018.

Principles

Beaumont Primary Academy will provide an outstanding education to a local community with a high level of social deprivation.   All members of staff and governors are committed to meeting the pastoral, social and academic needs of every student irrespective of background.  Pupil premium funding is therefore directed to ensuring an equality of opportunity for all learners.

When we have information about Pupil Premium Grant allocation, we will publish a full statement about how it is being used.

Sports Premium Funding

This funding is to improve the quality of provision in Sport to contribute to the health and well- being of students, however eligibility is for students from Year 1, so in 2016-2017 we will not be eligible for this funding.
