Pupil Premium & Free School Meals

The Government introduced the Pupil Premium Grant in April 2011. This grant, which is additional to main school funding, is seen by the government as the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers, by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable.

Schools can decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.

At Bannerman Road Community Academy we support all our pupils. We do this by providing high quality classroom teaching supplemented by interventions to support vulnerable learners as and when required. The Senior Leadership Team and Governing Body monitor the impact of all spending and interventions, including the Pupil Premium.

Please see below details of the allocation and impact of this funding for Bannerman Road Community Academy.
