The pupil premium is central government funding paid to schools and is designed to support additional provision for students in receipt of free school meals now ir at any point in the last six years. It is part of a recognition nationally and internationally that economic disadvantage has a negative impact on the student attainment. The pupil premium, therefore should be used to close the gap between these students and is aimed to eradicate any disadvantage. At Christ Church Junior School we have a high percentage of children known to be eligible for Pupil Premium (25.7% for 2015/16).
At Christ Church Junior School:
• We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of the pupils.
• We work hard to provide a quality learning experience and opportunities for as many pupils as possible.
• We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed.
• We track all vulnerable groups and use the data to provide intervention and support.
• In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged.
• Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals. Limited funding and resources means that not all children receiving free school meals will be in receipt of pupil premium interventions at one time.
As a parent, should you wish to discuss how the Pupil Premium is spent in greater detail please do not hesitate to contact us.
