Pupil Premium

Brent River College is a Pupil Referral Unit for students in Years 7-11 who are either permanently excluded from mainstream schools or at risk of permanent exclusion.

All our students are School Action Plus and a higher than average number of students have an Education, Health and Care plan or are being assessed.

There is higher than average percentage of boys, and students eligible for FSM.

The purpose of the pupil premium is to narrow the attainment gap between disadvantaged students and their peers. Our students have widely differing needs and attainment levels and we provide a wide range of different interventions and experiences to help students improve their commitment to learning, thrive and build confidence for the future. Some involve the whole school; some are designed for individual students with particular needs.

Students who are eligible include:

  • Students who have been registered for Free School Meals (FSM) at any point in the last six years
  • Children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months
  • Children of armed services personnel.

The funds are used effectively, supplementing the school’s budget to provide additional support. For example, in the past year, amongst other interventions and support we have funded

  • Boxing Clever
  • A range of therapies
  • Music Studio
  • QPR Coaches
  • Literacy & Numeracy support
