Pupil Premium, which is separate to main school funding, has been provided to schools since April 2011. The government thinks it’s the best way to ensure that there are no inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers.

The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years or have been looked after by the local authority for more than 6 months and children of service personnel. Schools are expected to use the money for the benefit of these students you can see a breakdown of our expenditure below.

Brookfield strives to ensure that children eligible for the Pupil Premium are provided with tailored support and opportunities in order to assist them in attaining high levels of progress and attainment. At the heart of this approach is viewing every child as an individual and because of this we do not have a ‘one size fits all’ policy regarding our Pupil Premium provision.
