Pupil Premium & Statement to Parents
Pupil premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and to close the gap between them and their peers. It is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), Looked after Children, children adopted from care and Service Forces Children. It also includes pupils who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure).
If you think your child is eligible to receive this additional funding and support but you are not sure whether the school are aware of this, please speak in confidence to Mrs Smith (Headteacher) or Mrs Carter (Office Manager). Please complete the appropriate form below and return to the school office - we can then check eligibility and ensure the school receives all funding due to support your child and the school. Alternatively, complete the form online or complete form and send it straight to Bristol City Council. If you need help with any of the above, please see Mrs Carter, who will be happy to help.
The school is held accountable for ho they spend the additional funding and here at Broomhill Junior School we ensue that the funding is spent to not only deliver targeted support; but also to enable us to develop a school community that is fully inclusive and means everyone can succeed.
We believe that every child is entitled to an education and have high aspirations for all of our pupils. Funding is utilised to create an environment where children can 'grow together'. All children are treated as individuals an with this in mind, we ensure that the support we offer is tailored to meet the needs of every pupil to enable them to reach their full potential.
Please see below for information regarding how the pupil premium funding was spent in the last financial year, the impact of this funding, and the plans for the future spending. These are reviewed in July on a yearly basis. The next review date is July 2024.
