 Culture and ethos

Brookburn Community Primary School offers a positive, safe learning environment for its community, in which everyone has equal and individual recognition and respect. We celebrate success and are committed to the continuous improvement and fulfilment of potential in every child. We encourage increasing confidence, independence and self-discipline amongst the pupils. Everyone within the school has an important role to play in sharing responsibility for the development of positive behaviour and attitudes.

 What is Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is additional funding which is allocated to schools on the basis of the number of pupils who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point over the last 6 years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’). The Pupil Premium is aimed at addressing the current underlying inequalities which exist between children from disadvantaged backgrounds and their more affluent peers.

The Pupil Premium also provides funding for children who have been looked after for more than 6 months, this is called  Pupil Premium Plus and the children of service personnel.

In the financial year 2016 -17  the Pupil Premium funding is as follows:

£1320 for each pupil eligible for FSM or ‘Ever 6 FSM’

£1900 for children who have been looked after for more than 6 months.  This is also referred to as Pupil Premium Plus.

£300 for service personnel.

£500 for EYFS  children

The DfE has given schools the freedom to use the Pupil Premium as we see fit to improve outcomes for disadvantaged pupils, based on our knowledge of pupil need. However we are accountable for this funding.
