Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Information

The Pupil Premium (PP) funding is an allocation of additional funding to schools to support raising the attainment of the most vulnerable pupils and closing the attainment gap between them and non-PP pupils . These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals, those who are looked after by the local authority and the children of armed service personnel.

All schools have been allocated money since 2011 and are required to report on the amount of funding received, how this is being used and the impact the funding has had on the achievement of pupils. Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit.

At St Joseph’s Catholic Primary we have high aspirations and ambitions for our children and we believe that no child should be left behind in any aspect of their development whether academic, social or physical.  We believe in a holistic approach that develops the whole child.  We strongly believe that social background and the locality of where children live should not be an excuse or reason not to achieve or succeed.  We work together as a school community to ensure that our pupils are given every chance to realise their full potential and encourage life-long learning.  All children are encouraged to have a thirst for knowledge, be inquisitive and to foster curiosity of the wider world.

We recognise that not all children who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged and we also recognise that not all children who are disadvantaged have free school meals.  We follow the government’s guidelines to allocate Pupil Premium support to those children who receive, or have received, free school meals, or who are in care.

The following is a report on how this money is spent.

Pupil Premium 2016-2017 Funding £47 520

The main barriers to learning experienced by children who are entitled to pupil premium are moderate learning difficulties, parental support, low personal expectations, low self esteem and a lack of access to wider learning enrichment opportunities.  Pupil premium helps fund measures to address these barriers.

Progress is measured by tracking disadvantaged groups in accordance with our assessment policy.  All children are assessed termly and the school’s pupil premium strategy is reviewed annually each July.

£2500 of this will be allocated to help bridge the gap by funding all school trips, residential excursions, cycling proficiency courses, morning and after school clubs, access to additional sporting activities and other such expenditure for PP children, providing new experiences to enhance learning and enjoyment.

Money will also be allocated to continue to employ additional staff particularly for early identification and intervention programmes, focusing on reducing gaps in attainment and improving opportunities for effective assessment, personalised learning and accelerated progress for individual pupils.

Approximately £1300 will be spent to provide milk for PP children annually.   (If numbers remain constant)
