£1,320 for primary-aged pupils

At Brimsdown...

Brimsdown provides a harmonious, happy learning environment where pupils feel valued and listened to. We aim to provide a secure but exciting atmosphere to support pupils to gain a joy of learning. We pride ourselves on being an inclusive school where the promotion of equal opportunities underpins our practices.Our key objective in using the Pupil Premium Grant is to diminish the differences between pupil groups. The school’s evaluation of its own performance is rigorous. Tracking of progress over time for each pupil is thorough in order to identify any areas for development and to ensure that we implement any interventions necessary to close the gap. These assessments happen at least termly and data is gathered, collated and analysed to assess the impact of interventions as well as to highlight the potential need for additional support.


In 2018-19, we will use a range of data to analyse the impact of spending:

End of Key Stage data
RWI assessments
In house current data
Intervention analysis
Outcomes of learning reviews (observations), learning moderations (book scrutinies) and progress meetings
Stakeholder feedback
