Pupil Premium

The pupil premium is an allocation of funding provided to schools to support children who may be vulnerable to underachievement. The amount received is dependent on the number of children who are known to be eligible for free school meals and/or are Looked After Children.

Principles

  • We organise teaching and learning at Park Junior School in order to meet the needs of all children in the best way.
  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for children who belong to vulnerable groups and that socially disadvantaged children have their needs adequately assessed and met.
  • We recognise that not all children who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged and we also recognise that not all children that are disadvantaged have free school meals. We reserve the right to allocate Pupil Premium funding to support any child the school has identified as being socially disadvantaged.
  • We will allocate Pupil Premium funding after a needs analysis to identify priority groups and individuals.

 

Limited funding and resources mean that not all children receiving free school meals will receive pupil premium interventions at any one time.
