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.
Our objectives for Pupil Premium spending in 2019 -2020 are:
- Where necessary, to narrow the gap in attainment in Reading and Maths between pupil premium children and non-pupil premium children
- For pupil premium children to make at least expected rate of progress or better in Reading and Writing
- The emotional well being of pupil premium children is supported across the school
- All our pupils have access to same enrichment opportunities
This year our pupil premium income is £12,860 and we review our plans in July each year.
