Pupil Premium Intent:
Our intention at Broomwood Primary School is to provide a high-quality education to all of our pupils. Irrespective of background or challenges faced, we want our pupils from more disadvantaged backgrounds to make good progress and where possible achieve the expected standard in reading, writing and maths by the end of year 6. We want the number of disadvantaged pupils achieving greater depth to be on par with their peers. To support the educational outcomes, we utilise funding to provide smaller intervention groups which work to enable pupils to both ‘catch up’ and ‘keep up’.
We want all of our pupils to have equity in access to an exemplary curriculum that motivates learning and provides both personal development and subject specific opportunities to broaden experiences and enhance learning. Therefore, some of the opportunities that we offer as part of the wider curriculum are funded via pupil premium and provide benefit to the whole school community to invest in our cultural capital e.g Opportunities such as music lessons for each year group from year 1- year 6 and whole school trips to the theatre. We proactively promote other clubs for pupils from a more disadvantaged background by offering free peripatetic music lessons and we ensure that all of our extra-curricular clubs are accessible to all.
The wellbeing of all pupils is paramount at Broomwood; however we recognise that adverse childhood experiences, as well as adverse community environments, can have a detrimental impact on the educational outcomes of pupils, particularly those from a disadvantaged background and therefore some of our funding supports in ensuring that our graduated approach to SEMH/ Wellbeing can be implemented effectively.
