Pupil Premium Strategy

What is Pupil Premium?

What is Pupil Premium?

For every child who is registered for free school meals, has a parent who is a member of the armed forces, or is ‘Looked after’ or adopted, Bowsland Green receives an additional £300 – £1900 from the Government to support learning. This additional money is called ‘Pupil Premium Funding’ and is used in our school to directly help children make accelerated progress in Maths and English.


The Staff and Governors of Bowsland are committed to ensuring provision is made which enables the accelerated progress in English and Maths of those pupil who benefit from the Pupil Premium.


  • To ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils.
  • To ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed.
  • To address the main barriers to educational achievement for Pupil Premium Pupils.
  • In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged.
