Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is additional government funding for schools to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.

At All Saints Junior School we believe that every child, regardless of their background, should be given the very best education. The school receives Pupil Premium based on the number of children in the following groups:

  • Pupils entitled to free school meals (FSM) now or at any point during the past six years.
  • Pupils who have been continuously Looked After for the past six months.
  • Pupils who are adopted from care under the Adoption and Children Act 2002 or have left care under a Special Guardianship Residence Order.
  • Pupils of parents who are currently, or during the past three years, serving in the regular armed forces, or are in receipt of a pension from the MOD.

Schools have the freedom to spend the funding in a way they think will best support the raising of attainment for Pupil Premium pupils.

You can find out more about the Pupil Premium on the Government's website.
