Pupil Premium Strategy 2017-18
To raise the attainment, achievement and aspirations of our Pupil Premium Students
- The government believes the pupil premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers, by ensuring funding to tackle disadvantage, reaches the pupils who need it most.
- It is for schools to decide how the pupil premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.
- At Broadgreen, we aim to introduce, analyse and build strategies which ensure that our students in receipt of the grant have a complete educational experience, attain their full potential and the ‘gap’ between them and their peers is narrowed
- The percentage of students classed as “FSM/pupil premium” at Broadgreen is nearly 70% with a significant proportion financially just above this level. For this reason, whilst paying due heed to specific pupil premium students, Broadgreen takes an approach which supports all students
- Broadgreen is in the highest quintile nationally for pupil premium
- Broadgreen is in the highest quintile national for deprivation
- Broadgreen has the highest number of Looked After Children in the City
