A further grant has been allocated to school to support the continued Catch-Up work that is needed after further disruption in 2020/21. The DfE have funded £529 per pupil for 60% of the number of pupil premium children on roll in Years 1-6 at Brackenbury in October 2020. This is to fund 75% of the cost of tuition with the school needing to contributing the additional 25%. In our school this means that 81 of our 135 PP children in Y1-6 will attract the funding giving a total of £42,849.
As stated the above £42,849 needs to be supplemented by an additional 25% from the school budget giving a total of £56,499.
