Pupil Premium Strategy for 2017-218

The Academy celebrates each person’s individuality, their achievements and their passions. It caters for the whole child, challenges each and every child’s thinking whilst developing an insatiable desire to enquire. A nurturing and vibrant environment necessitates the very best teaching to equip the children with the enduring skills needed to be a life-long learner. There will be a greater emphasis on children’s accountability to themselves, each other and adults; accepting that spiritual, social and emotional needs will need guidance from informed and empathetic adults. Children will increasingly control the curriculum content through their interests, local, national or international events. They will be taught how to safely access and critically examine the information using traditional sources and every available form of technology. Successful, enthused learners will be equipped to explore and experience the wider world as part of their journey to adulthood and beyond.

Our School’s Vision Statement

At Bishopton Redmarshall Church of England Primary School, we are wholly committed to removing barriers to each and every child’s learning and progress. Our priority is to support our disadvantaged pupils in order to achieve the best they can and to diminish the difference in attainment and progress between themselves and the non-disadvantaged. We do not confuse eligibility for the Pupil Premium with low ability; all of our children are God’s children and each one deserves the very best education, experiences and support in order to achieve their full potential regardless of their backgrounds and needs. The Pupil premium is allocated to schools for disadvantaged children who are known to be eligible for Free School Meals [FSM] at any time during the previous six years and to children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. There is also separate Pupil Premium support for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.

Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit, but are held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support eligible pupils. Schools are required to publish this information online.


Every child is unique. Consequently, there can be many barriers to learning for our disadvantaged children at Bishopton Redmarshall. These include:-

 Social, emotional and behavioural problems

 Poor attendance

 Lack of parental engagement

Our priority is to identify and remove these barriers in order to make a difference to every child’s education in terms of attainment, progress, achievement and wellbeing enabling them to perform and achieve the same as their non-disadvantaged peers. Therefore we use Pupil Premium funding to support pupils learning and progress in the classroom through a number of strategies which are detailed later in this document. We also aim to ensure that there are no financial or social barriers to a child’s full participation in school life. In order to achieve this, part of our Pupil Premium funding is spent to ensure our children have the best possible opportunities to be successful and to experience meaningful, memorable and enriching experiences. All of our children are ‘potentially wonderful’.

Individual Barriers to Learning are identified for all children who receive Pupil Premium funding and their progress is meticulously tracked throughout the school year.

OUR AIMS  Raising achievement - we want all children to achieve success and we aim to make a difference for our Pupil Premium pupils.
 Excellence and equity - we want to provide opportunities to ensure all pupils succeed.


 To provide quality first teaching in order to continue improving the attainment and successes of all children and to close the gap between groups.

 To continue to provide enriching experiences including day trips, residential visits and events in school which children would not otherwise access.

 To work closely with vulnerable disadvantaged children and their families by further developing parental engagement and offering appropriate and effective support.

 To continue to improve our attendance figures.

 To use funding to provide bespoke support for each child.


We will measure the impact of Pupil Premium Funding in the following ways:

 Updates on progress and monitoring of our Pupil Premium Strategy will be discussed at Bishopton Redmarshall CE Primary School Academy Council meeting each half-term. Governors will have regular opportunities to review and evaluate the impact of the Pupil Premium strategy.

 The Head of School and Deputy Head Teacher will review the individual barriers for learning for each child receiving Pupil Premium funding every six weeks at our pupil progress meetings with the class teachers and will then adapt strategies for individual children if required.

 The Head of School and Deputy Head Teacher will rigorously monitor, discuss and assess every child’s progress [including those receiving Pupil Premium funding] every six weeks at our pupil progress meetings.

 The Head of School and Deputy Head Teacher will track the progress of our disadvantaged pupils by analysing our in-house data at the end of each term and further strategies/interventions will be put into place as required.

 Regular Learning conversations with individual children receiving Pupil Premium to discuss their wellbeing and learning in school.

 Outcomes at the end of Early Years, KS1 and KS2 will be evaluated and future areas for development identified and acted upon.
