Is my child entitled to Pupil Premium Funding?
Your child will be entitled to Pupil Premium Funding if they are entitled to free school meals. As the Government initiative now enables all Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 pupils to a free school meal it is important that you notify us at school if your child is entitled to claim free school meals. Without you informing us we have no way of claiming this funding. The process will be confidential and the money will help to improve your childs learning journey. It can help with trips and visits as well as providing additional support and encouragement for your child.
In addition Pupil Premium Funding is available for any child who is adopted from care and also any child who is looked after/cared for. Please inform us if your child falls in to one of these categories as this funding helps us to make a difference to their time with us at Brereton.
Pupil Premium Plan 2020-21
The plan for 2020/21 can be found below.
Due to the changes to educational provision caused by the COVID-19 pandemic the detail in this Pupil Premium plan have been subject to review. Our use of the funding has been adapted to meet students’ needs as they have arisen, whilst maintaining where possible the principles outlined in this document, and in others related to the PPG.
During the pandemic the following key steps have been taken to ensure that ‘disadvantaged’ pupils’ barriers to learning will continue to be overcome wherever possible:
· Step 1 - Children attended school
· Step 2 - Ensuring children have the correct tools and resources to complete home learning
· Step 3 - Family support
Future versions of the strategy will reflect the changes that are currently being made.
School leaders with responsibility for administering the PPG have drawn on these helpful publications from the Children’s Commissioner and the Education Endowment Foundation:
They will continue to follow guidance and advice from relevant bodies as it emerges, in consultation with other stakeholders.
