School Statement

Broadbottom Church of England Primary School staff and governors are committed to providing the highest quality education, care and experiences for all our pupils.

 

Rationale

The aim of the Governments new Pupil Premium is to raise achievement among disadvantaged children. It will provide additional funding for disadvantaged pupils to ensure they benefit from the same educational opportunities as pupils from wealthier families.The Pupil Premium has a number of wider aims:

to increase social mobility;

to enable more pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds to get to the top universities;

to reduce the attainment gap between the highest and lowest achieving pupils nationally.

 

Pupil Premium Funding Report 2017-2018

It is the responsibility of the management of the school and governing body to explain Pupil Premium expenditure to parents in the form of an annual strategy statement.  Within this we will publish details on how Pupil Premium has been used in school the attainment and progress of pupils who receive Pupil Premium and additional interventions/activities/resources that have been delivered by the additional funding.  We are determined to close the gap.

 

Barriers to Learning

On entry to school listening and attention skills, and readiness to learn are low, particularly with those children who access this funding.  The ability to manage feelings and behaviour as well as knowledge and understanding of the world again is less well established with these particular children.  When these factors put together this can hinder attainment and progress in reading, writing, maths and phonics in Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1.

Parental engagement (throughout the school) in home reading routines and supporting homework can often (but not always) be sporadic for disadvantaged groups.

External agencies including Children Social Care and Educational Psychology have often supported a number of these children.
