Pupil Premium Strategy Statement

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to pupils who fall into one of the following categories: looked after pupils, pupils who are currently eligible for free school meals, pupils who are within a service family and pupils who have received free school meals in the last six years ('Ever 6' children).  Children also eligible include children adopted from care, or those children who have left care under a special guardianship.

We use this Pupil Premium provision to deliver a range of strategies to raise attainment and support progression of disadvantaged children.

Our aims and objectives:

  • To enrich the curriculum to enable all pupils to achieve their academic potential and to enhance their social and emotional well-being;

  • To reduce the attainment gap between disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged pupils where necessary;  

  • To ensure pupil premium learners make progress regardless of their prior attainment.

If you think you are eligible or you would like any additional information about Pupil Premium at Bushmead Primary School, please do not hesitate to contact the school on 01582 725387.
