Pupil Premium

 Pupil Premium Report

Pupil premium overview

The Pupil Premium (PP) is allocated to schools in addition to main school funding, in order to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), Looked After Children, and children of service personnel, and their peers.

Currently St John’s utilises the funds to pay for the following:

  1. School visits

St John’s will now ensure that any curriculum-related visits will be offered to each child eligible for PP funding at no cost.

  1. High Quality, Targeted Intervention

St John’s Primary School strives to ensure the flexibility of the curriculum. This enables every child to have the opportunity to succeed to the best of their ability and feel proud of their achievements.

Throughout Early Years, KS1 and KS2 close monitoring of each child allows staff to support pupils appropriately. This support may include:

  • Writing intervention
  • Reading intervention
  • Numeracy intervention
  • Speech and Language programme
  • Physiotherapy sessions
  • Kaleidoscope
  • Nurture groups/behaviour support
  • Positive Play ( From September 2015 pending training during the summer term)

Pupil Premium will help to fund specialised resources and staffing throughout a child’s time at St John’s.

We monitor the impact of the use of PP funding by using tracking grids to highlight progress, ensuring the attainment gaps are closing between the different groups of pupils, and targeting intense intervention as necessary. This is monitored by the Head teacher and SENCo who report to the governing body.

Areas of concern

On recent SATs papers Reading has been an area of concern but current data suggests that the strategies put in place are starting to bear fruit. SATs results for 2015 support this as 93% achieved 4+ in Reading
