Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.

Pupil Premium Report to Parents 2017

Overview

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011, and paid by means of a specific grant based on the

school census figures for pupils registered as eligible for FSM in reception to Year 11. For looked

after children the Pupil premium was calculated using the Children Looked After data returns

(SSDA903). A premium has also been introduced for children whose parents are currently serving in

the armed forces. This service premium is designed to address the emotional and social well-being of

these pupils.

Objectives for Pupil Premium in Sutton St James School

At Sutton St James CP School we are committed to remove the gap in attainment between disadvantaged pupils and other pupils.

1. We will ensure that the additional funding reaches the Pupil Premium (PP) pupils and that it

makes a significant impact on their education and lives.

2. The Pupil Premium will be used to provide additional educational support to improve the

progress and to raise the standard of achievement for these pupils.

3. The funding will be used to narrow and close the gap between the achievements of Pupil

Premium pupils and their peers.

4. Sutton St James School will use the additional funding to address any underlying inequalities

between children eligible for Pupils Premium and others.
