The Pupil Premium grant is additional to main school funding and it will be used by Sutton St James School in the following ways:
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.
The Headteacher and governing body have agreed a policy for Pupil Premium to guide the use of
funds and to ensure that it represents value for money.
The Headteacher and appointed Pupil Premium Governor (Mrs Vicki Newton) will regularly and rigorously monitor, evaluate and review the strategies we have put into place for Pupil Premium and report to the governing body on its progress and impact.
