At St James Primary School, we have high aspirations and ambitions for all our children, we believe that all children have the right to an outstanding education.
Pupil premium money is carefully targeted to support children from disadvantaged backgrounds to ensure they benefit from the same opportunities as students from less deprived families. At St James Primary School, we ensure that spending is directly linked to narrowing the gaps in attainment between pupil premium children and non-pupil premium children. We make use of our own data to expand existing interventions. We strive to ensure that children are exposed to outstanding teaching and learning on a day to day basis. We also make use of research when evaluating interventions and considering the implementation of new interventions.
For the year 2017/18, the school received £27,980.
Our objectives for Pupil Premium spending in 2018/19 are:
- To close the gap in attainment between pupil premium children and non-pupil premium children in writing and maths.
- To have a higher percentage of pupil premium children achieving GDS at the end of KS2 in all subject areas.
- To improve the attendance of pupil premium children
