Support and Funding at Bearwood

The Government is giving money to schools to help children from lower income families do their very best. This funding is called a ‘Pupil Premium’. In addition to this, the government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for the academic year 2015/2016 to provide new and substantial primary school sport funding.

Schools have a responsibility to report on the impact of the spending of this funding. Please see the links below which illustrate the following impact statements:

We have raised the attainment and progress of Pupil Premium students so that their performance compares favourably with Non-Pupil Premium peers across the school. We have significantly improved levels of attainment and progress. By the end of KS2, 9/10  (80%) of pupil premium children have made expected progress across combined reading, writing and maths. In writing, 90% of children (9/10) have made more than expected progress, in reading 70% and in Maths, 40%. We have a clear focus on all disadvantaged pupils, including those with SEND and more able which is shown in our full report.

We have significantly impacted on the provision of PE and Sport by engaging and developing learning through  comprehensive extra-curricular provision, as well as enriched curriculum skills based afternoons.
