Premium Allocations

Pupil Premium

Our school receives an amount of money called the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) each year.


This grant provides additional funds to school for each child who is currently, or has been at any time in the last 6 years, entitled to Free School Meals (FSM). In addition, an amount is also allocated to pupils who are ‘Looked After’ by the Local Authority (CLA) or who are children of Her Majesty’s Forces.

The Pupil Premium totalling £128,700 has been allocated to us in our budget for 2020-2021 financial year.  Currently our level of PP is 56%.

At Burnside Primary School, our goal to ensure that any differences in the attainment of pupil groups are closed swiftly and all children achieve their potential. We aim to raise academic attainment and to ensure that children have a wide range of opportunities and experiences to develop confidence, self-esteem and have high aspirations.

As a result of the pandemic, the government has announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up. This includes a one-off universal £650 million catch-up premium for the 2020 to 2021 academic year to ensure that schools have the support they need to help all pupils make up for lost teaching time.
