Pupil Premium

BHES works in partnership with on-roll schools to use bespoke planning in all areas of the curriculum to support any student to best meet their potential. Currently, BHES does not claim Pupil Premium from schools. Instead this is left as an option for schools to contribute Pupil Premium received on a voluntary basis. This policy is under review and will be reconsidered in September 2022 as one of the measures on the service development plan.

Literacy and Numeracy Interventions

Due to students that enter our service missing large amounts of schooling, we have focused on using the Pupil Premium funding on Literacy and Numeracy catch up. This is done via bespoke Literacy and numeracy intervention programmes for students accessing classes.

For those on 1:1 tuition, additional English and Maths support is offered on top of the statutory offer of 5 hours a week.

How BHES measures the impact of bespoke programmes on Pupil Premium students

  • Pupil progress data
  • Intervention assessments
  • Fortnightly RAG system monitored by SLT for each individual student
  • Current Working Levels termly monitoring by Head of Tuition who reports back to Senior Leadership Team and Management Committee

Looked-after children

Pupil premium allocations based on the eligibility of looked-after children are managed by the Bristol City Council’s Virtual School Head The Hope Virtual school

Our designated teacher will work with The Hope to ensure pupil premium benefits looked-after children our setting, in line with their personal education plans.

Bristol City Council is expected to release these payments as soon as possible to schools, but they may choose to retain a portion of it to fund activities that will benefit a group, or all, of the authority’s looked-after children.
