The pupil premium is a grant given to schools to close the attainment gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers. The funding is allocated to most effectively target additional support where it is needed most.

Beam County Primary school received an award for the London Mayor’s Schools for Success Programme. The award is a tribute to the excellent work of our teachers in ensuring that all our pupils made excellent progress, particularly our low-achieving students. We also provide a platform for other schools to learn from us. For further information please press on this link

The grant is allocated in line with the financial year, which begins in April. Allocations are based on data from the previous January census. If an eligible pupil joins after this census, the school will not receive their allocation until the following year.
