Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Funding is additional funding allocated to the school on top of its normal budget. It is allocated according to the number of children who are eligible

Your child is eligible for Pupil Premium funding if you are in receipt of any of the following;

• Income support
• Income based job seekers allowance
• Income related Employment and Support Allowance
• Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act
• The guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
• Child Tax Credit, provided you are not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross salary of no more than £16,190 as assessed by HMRC
• Are in the Armed Forces

 If you feel that any of these apply to you then you should complete a registration form which can be found at www.dorsetforyou.gov.uk/free-school-meals


This funding is used to increase opportunity for individual children, groups of children or all the children.


At Broadmayne First School all children who are eligible for Pupil Premium Funding receive;

  • support to access to our Breakfast Club (before school) or Base Club (after school) provision
  • free hot school meals in Y3 and Y4 as well as reception, Y1 and Y2
  • help with school visits, trips and activities paid by the school using the funding
  • help with music tuition fees
In addition to this ‘core package’ Pupil Premium Funding is also used to support the provision of learning and pastoral support across the school.

No child eligible for Pupil Premium Funding is ever identified to their peers.

In times of tighter school budgets access to Pupil Premium Funding can make a significant difference to our school. Last year we received £20,680 in additional funds through Pupil Premium. 

Accessing funding that is rightfully available for your child can make a really positive impact to the school, your child and indeed all our children.

If you have any queries with regard to an application, please do not hesitate to contact Helen Collings (Headteacher) or the school office.
