Pupil and Sports Premium

Pupil Premium

Leaders make effective use of pupil premium funding to provide additional support where needed. 

As a result, disadvantaged pupils achieve well and make good progress.

(Brookmead School Ofsted 'Good', January 2015)

Pupil Premium funding has been allocated to schools each year since 2011. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils at Brookmead School is 16% (an increase of 6% over three years).   Because some cohorts have only a small number of disadvantaged pupils, detailed information regarding pupil outcomes is not published on the website to ensure pupil anonymity. The Pupil Premium strategy is reviewed in the Spring and Autumn Terms and funding allocated as part of the annual budget setting exercise.

Our 2022/ 23 expenditure is being reviewed and the updated Pupil Premium strategy for 2023/4 is currently being adjusted on the three year plan - watch this space for more information.

Pupil Premium Funding is also used to maintain excellence in the teaching of Phonics and Early Reading in Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1, and build confidence and enjoyment in reading in Key Stage 2 through access to a rich range of books and reading resources.

The school works closely with the Pitstone Town Lands Charity to help provide financial support to families in need in Pitstone.  Families who may be experiencing financial hardship are encouraged to speak to a member of the school leadership team in confidence. 

Sports Premium

The school uses the primary sport funding effectively.  It successfully raises the awareness of, and opportunities for, pupils to take part in a wide range of sporting activities.  The school has increased the number of clubs available and pupil participation is high.  This promotes healthy lifestyles for all.
