Pupil Premium

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, 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. 


Our objectives for Pupil Premium spending in 2021 - 2022 are:

Develop reading skills through regular targeted support

Improve Maths progress and attainment through regular targeted support

Expenditure and Review for current academic year (2020-2021)

COVID 19: It is important to note that lockdown has been a significant barrier for PP pupils and while strategies have been put in place to offer an increased level of support, these have not always been taken up by the pupils and their families. Teachers report that the amount of work submitted by the majority of PP pupils has been varied and some pupils have had minimal contact with class teacher during this time.
COVID closure of school in March 2020 caused interruptions to children’s support, particularly around family wellbeing and financial support provided due to individual circumstances
