At Brookwood Primary school, all members of staff and governors take responsibility for, and are dedicated to, ensuring that disadvantaged pupils receive a high-quality education which meets their academic, social and wellbeing needs. Staff are empowered in knowing that by delivering a broad, balanced and aspirational curriculum, as well as building strong relationships with children and families, we have the opportunity to make a huge difference to life chances of our children.
Our vision is to equip them with the knowledge and skills needed to be curious, ambitious and successful.
We recognise that not all children from low-income families will be disadvantaged and that not all pupils who are disadvantaged will be eligible for pupil premium. We understand that it is not the funding itself that will improve achievement and attainment, but how it is used. The Department for Education (DfE) expects us to use PPG appropriately and to be accountable for the decisions we make.
The intended effect of pupil premium funding is to accelerate progress and raise attainment for our pupils who are at an educational disadvantage.
