What is Pupil Premium?
Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. It is paid to schools according to the number of pupils who have been registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years been in care for 6 months or longer.
We work hard to ensure that every child receives the support they require.
- Teachers / TA’s keep a log of the interventions and support provided to pupils
- Some support is individual and some for groups is more universal
- Each intervention is thought out carefully and the outcomes noted and analysed with senior leaders
The EEF guide to Pupil Premium (https://educationendowmentfoundation.org.uk/public/files/Publications/Pupil_Premium_Guidance_iPDF.pdf) highlights that a tiered approach to Pupil Premium spending helps and at St Joseph the Worker Catholic Primary School we have adopted this approach. Over the years we invested in additional teaching time for pupils in an aim to raise the attainment of the pupils who need additional support. Effective feedback and intervention from class teachers is invaluable. We have also invested in targeted academic support and continue to prioritise ways to break down non- academic barriers.
