Pupil Premium Statement
Pupil Premium is additional funding provided to schools for supporting more disadvantaged pupils to ensure they benefit from the same opportunities as all other children.It is additional funding allocated to schools to accelerate progress and raise attainment. There are three categories of children who qualify for pupil premium:
•Children who are eligible for free school meals (FSM)
•Looked after children
•Armed forces children
The school currently has a small number of children who are eligible for pupil premium, which is below the national and local average.
We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who are disadvantaged ,we also recognize that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered for,or qualify for free school meals.
At St John the Evangelist Catholic Primary School we are committed to helping every child and their family achieve their very best, by providing a high quality and well-resourced learning environment. We also ensure that all teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils and we direct support, both academic and pastoral, appropriately.
