They are spending over £450 million on this funding over the 3 academic years 2013 to 2014, 2014 to 2015 and 2015 to 2016.

Introduced in 2011, pupil premium is an amount of money given to schools by the Government each year. This is to improve attainment of disadvantaged children.
Research shows that children from low income families may not perform as well at school than their peers. Pupil premium is intended to directly benefit children who are eligible and to narrow the gap between them and their classmates.
At Rosebrook, we aim to provide the children with a wide range of experiences to support and develop their learning. This includes identification of the needs of each child at their current point of development in order to move their learning on further.
We also aim to remove children’s social, emotional and behavioural barriers to learning in order for teachers to be able to focus on teaching and learners to be able to focus on learning. With this in mind, a significant proportion of the Pupil Premium funding is allocated to ensuring that we have the right team of staff to support Pupil Premium children and their families; making sure that children come to school ready to learn. As a result of the team comprising of a full time Child Protection Officer, PSA and a range of therapists working in conjunction with our Assistant Headteacher (Inclusion), the early identification of children and families requiring support is now more proactive.
The impact of the Pupil Premium spend will be evaluated against the progress that children make academically, socially and emotionally.
