Pupil Premium 2018/2019

Brigg Primary School


Pupil Premium 2018-19

For 2018-19 the Pupil Premium funding is £1320 for primary-aged pupils who have been registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years based on January 2018 school census data. For each pupil identified in the spring school census as a looked-after child (LAC) defined in the Children Act 1989 as one who is in the care of, or provided with accommodation by, an English local authority, the school receives £2300. The same amount is also received for each pupil identified in the spring school census as having left local-authority care due to: adoption, a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order or a residence order.

Service Premium

The service premium is extra funding for schools to support children and young people with parents in the armed forces. In the financial year 2018 to 2019, schools will receive £300 for each eligible pupil.

Pupils attract the premium if they meet the following criteria:

  • one of their parents is serving in the regular  armed forces
  • they have been registered as a ‘service child’ in the school census at any point since 2011
  • one of their parents died while serving in the armed forces and the pupil receives a pension under the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme (AFCS) or the War Pensions Scheme (WPS)

This is one of the current governments key educational policies and is based on findings that show that, as a group, pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in time have consistently lower educational attainment than those who have never been eligible for free school meals.

Summary of main barriers pupils who are eligible for free school meals may face:

  • Social and emotional needs
  • Speech and language issues
  • Moderate learning difficulties
  • Behavioural issues
  • Lack of opportunities due to deprivation e.g. playing a musical instrument


At Brigg Primary School we assess all pupils’ attainment and progress throughout the school year. The focus of these assessments is on pupils’ progress towards meeting their end of year expectations.  We hold termly pupil progress review meetings and as a result of these meetings, additional support or targeted interventions are implemented or adapted to meet the needs of individual Pupil Premium children.
