Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Statement 2017-18

The Pupil Premium is grant funding for pupils from Reception to Year 11 who are:

  • ‘Looked After’ by a Local Authority for at least one day as recorded in the Children Looked After Data Return and aged 4-15 at 31st August.
  • Adopted from care under the Adoption and Children Act 2002 and children who have left care  under a Special Guardianship or Residence Order.
  • Eligible for Free School Meals at any point in the previous six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure).
  • Children of armed services personnel. The Service Children premium also includes children whose parent(s) has left the service up to four years ago; this is known as Ever 4.

The level of funding for pupil premium in 17-18 is as follows:

  • Pupils in Year Groups R to 6 recorded as Ever 6 FSM £1,320.
  • Pupils in Year Groups 7 to 11 recorded as Ever 6 FSM £ 935.
  • Looked After Children (CLA) £1,900.
  • Children adopted from care under the Adoption and Children Act 2002 and children who have left care under a Special Guardianship or Residence Order £1,900.
  • Service children – Pupils in Year Groups R to 11 recorded as Ever 4 Service Child or in receipt of a child pension from the Ministry of Defence £300.

The grant was introduced in 2011 and the purpose of the grant is to support schools in ensuring that any differences in attainment between the disadvantaged and the more advantaged are shown to be diminishing.

It is the school’s responsibility to decide how the majority of Pupil Premium is spent and to ensure it is linked to targets based on the child’s educational attainment. We are required to report on how much pupilpremium funding we received for this academic year, details of how we intend to spend the funding, including our reasons and evidence, details of how we spent the funding for the previous academic year and how it     made a difference to the attainment of the pupils.

The Beacon of Light School acknowledges the responsibility for socially disadvantaged pupils and we are committed to meeting pastoral, social and academic needs within the school environment. We are committed to diminishing the difference between vulnerable pupils and the Pupil Premium funding forms a vital part of that process.

The targeted and strategic use of Pupil Premium will support us in achieving our vision. All our work through the Pupil Premium is aimed at accelerating progress and moving children to at least the age-related expectations, or at least achieves the nationally expected points of progress each year in English and Mathematics.

View our full 2016-17 Pupil Premium Strategy Statement.

A life-changing school where education and opportunity lead the way to a brighter future. We inspire, encourage and nurture all our students to learn more, do more and be more.

The style of delivery from our team ensures participants receive opportunities to develop their game and decision making skills aided by age relevant coaching
