Pupil Premium


We intend that all students, irrespective of their backgrounds and challenges they may face, make good academic progress, and develop socially and emotionally to enable them to play a full and productive role in society. Our Pupil Premium Strategy is underpinned by a focus on high-quality teaching, which research supports in conjunction with personalised pastoral care and will benefit both disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged students.

Tackling the 'barriers to learning' outlined in this strategy is an integral part of our Pupil Premium (PP) approach. We firmly believe in identifying challenges with a pre-emptive mindset, where support is put in place to mitigate these challenges instead of reacting once they have emerged. Such barriers/challenges to learning include (but are exclusive to) attendance in school and participation in co-curricular activities. We promote a bespoke approach in terms of the support we offer with the aim of 'breaking down such barriers and recognise that a targeted and personalised approach will most benefit our disadvantaged students as opposed to a limiting 'one size' fits all approach.

The approaches adopted are also specifically chosen to compliment each other to ensure that closing existing attainment and achievement gaps between PP and non-PP students lies at the heart of a whole school's resolve to continue to provide high-quality education for all students. Our strategy is integral to our broader whole-school plans for education recovery, notably in our targeted support through the National Tutoring Programme for those students whose education has been most affected, including non-disadvantaged students.

Pupil Premium Grant

The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) was introduced by the Government in April 2011. Schools receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months (CLA), who have received free school meals at any point in the last 6 years, children of service personnel and children who have been adopted from local authority care.

Free School Meals

Children who attend a Bracknell Forest school and whose parents or carers receive certain benefits, may be entitled to free school meals. Please click here for further information.
