Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is additional funding that the school receives to help close the attainment gap between children from low-income and other disadvantaged families and their peers.

If a child has been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point over the past 6 years or has been looked after for one day or more (Child Looked After), the school receives an amount per head within their budget. A provision is also made for children who have a parent in the armed services.

Biggin Hill Primary School is a large 3-form entry school with 651 pupils (Autumn Census 2021). Currently, the percentage of pupils eligible for Pupil Premium funding is 47% (Autumn census 2021), this is considerably higher than the England average. We are determined that all pupils are given the best possible chance to achieve their full potential through the highest standards of Quality First Teaching, focussed support, curriculum enrichment, and pastoral care. The Senior Leadership Team regularly evaluate pupil premium outcomes compared to other pupils in school and nationally to ensure the correct strategies and provision are in place. At Biggin Hill Primary School we have exceptionally strong outcomes for pupil premium children in comparison to national and local data, please click here for more information.

This funding is used for:

  • Whole-school strategies that impact on all pupils

  • Specific support targeting pupil premium pupils

We have focussed our planned expenditure for 2021/2022 on the following areas:
