Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Funding

'Believe in the light, whilst you have the light, so that you may become children of light.' John 12:36

Everyone is different and unique.  Everyone has the right to reach their own potential, to succeed, to experience success and to develop their skills across the curriculum with confidence.  Our personalising learning approach ensures a highly inclusive approach so that all God's children can live life in all its fullness.

The Pupil Premium Funding is money that is allocated to schools based on the number of children on roll that are known to have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any time in the last six years.

Schools have the freedom to spend the Premium, which is additional to the school budget, in a way that they feel will best support the raising of attainment for the most vulnerable pupils.

At Kingsley St John’s CE Aided Primary School the money is allocated to initiatives to ensure that pupils achieve their full potential academically as well as personally and socially. We seek to ensure that the teaching and learning needs of all children are met through ‘Quality First Teaching’ and use the Premium to build upon this, ensuring that the attainment and progress of these children is in line with other learners within our school and nationally.  

In our school we use our budget to keep pupil numbers in classes low, so that quality teaching is available at all times for all pupils.

Pupil premium is additional to the infant free school meals.  ALl children in KS1 and Reception receive a universal free school meal.  The may still be and additionally be entitled to apply and receive pupil premium fundign also.
