What is Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is in addition to main school funding, it was introduced in April 2011, and paid by means of a specific grant based on school census figures for pupils registered as being eligible for Free School Meals now or within the last 6 years, Looked after Children and children whose parents are currently serving in the Armed Forces in Reception to Year 11.

Our Vision – At Burlish Park Primary School we strive to:

  • provide opportunities for all of our students to engage in their learning and to acquire the skills and knowledge they need for future success
  • use the Pupil Premium funding imaginatively and effectively to ensure that economic disadvantage for some students is not a barrier to success
  • work with parents/carers throughout the year to make sure that all eligible students have been identified
  • create and maintain a high profile of disadvantaged pupils amongst staff as a key accountability group
  • work with teachers, Teaching Assistants, parents/carers and trustees to ensure that all eligible students make expected or better than expected progress through high quality teaching and meaningful feedback
  • track the progress of disadvantaged pupils regularly, identify any barriers to learning and adjust provision where required
  • seek best practice and research regarding the Pupil Premium spend to ensure the best student outcomes;
  • improve the range and quality of the overall learning experience for disadvantaged pupils, including enrichment opportunities

Our Pupil Premium grant is £84,465, this includes £7,105 recovery premium funding.
