Pupil Premium

What is the Pupil Premium grant?

Introduced in 2011, the Pupil Premium is a sum of money given to schools each year by the Government to improve the attainment of disadvantaged children.

This is based on research showing that children from low income families perform less well at school than their peers. Often, but not always, children who are entitled to Pupil Premium face challenges such as poor language and communication skills, less family support, lack of confidence and issues with attendance and punctuality. The Pupil Premium is intended to directly benefit the children who are eligible, helping to diminish the difference between them and their classmates.

The Pupil Premium grant at Brinsley Primary and Nursery School, for academic year 2022-2023 is £41,550

 How to claim your child’s Pupil Premium...

Your child may be eligible for free school meals – and accordingly Pupil Premium – if you receive any of the following benefits:

At Brinsley Primary and Nursery School, we are able to tell you what you need to do to register your child as eligible.

From September 2014, all children in Reception and Years 1 and 2 qualified for free school meals, regardless of their family income, but only the children who would have qualified for free meals under the above income-based criteria will receive the Pupil Premium.

If your child qualifies for free school meals, it is important that you tell us - even if they take a packed lunch – as this enables us to claim pupil premium. Pupil Premium grants DO make a difference and with your support, the funding can help to diminish any difference that there may be between your child's academic achievement and that of their peers.
