Bridge & Patrixbourne Church of England Primary School recieves Pupil Premium Funding in addition to the school's delegated budget. This is based upon the number of children eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), 'Looked After-Children' (LAC) and for those children whose parents are currently in the Armed Forces.
‘It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil is spent since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.’

The school will use this money to support systems and processes which ensure continued progress and academic achievement for those in vulnerable groups – FSM, CLA, children working below age related expectations and children with lower attainment and/or progress. This is regularly monitored by the school's Governing Board.
If you feel that your child may be eligible for this grant, please speak to Carla Long (Inclusion Leader) or Morny Starling (Admissions and Attendance Officer).
