Pupil Premium Strategy
The pupil premium is a grant given to schools to close the attainment gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers. The funding is allocated to most effectively target additional support where it is needed most.
Beam County Primary school received an award for the London Mayor’s Schools for Success Programme. The award is a tribute to the excellent work of our teachers in ensuring that all our pupils made excellent progress, particularly our low-achieving students. We also provide a platform for other schools to learn from us. For further information please press on this link
The grant is allocated in line with the financial year, which begins in April. Allocations are based on data from the previous January census. If an eligible pupil joins after this census, the school will not receive their allocation until the following year.
For the previous financial year (2016 – 2017) – Amount received = £217,806

How we will spend the funding to overcome the barriers.
To accelerate the progress of pupil premium children, and also those behind expected levels of progress, amongst other strategies, an additional teacher will provide in-class support and intervention programmes; additional TA provision in each classroom will lead the interventions throughout the school and to provide specific in class support for small groups/ individuals, Details of the provision is available by clicking here.
How we will measure the impact of the funding.
We use both internal and external data to measure the impact of the Pupil Premium Grant on our pupils’ learning. We will review the effectiveness of the interventions we are using and adapt them to meet need when and where required. Further details are contained in the PP Provision map.
