Pupil Premium at Joydens Wood Junior School

Pupil Premium Grant


The Pupil Premium is an additional source of funding to schools that was introduced by the Government in April 2011. The purpose of the money allocated to schools
is to improve the learning outcomes of those children considered to be at a disadvantage when compared to their peers. The money each school receives is based on
the number of pupils who have been in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM) at any time in the previous six years, pupils whose parents are service personnel and
pupils who Looked After, (in local authority care for at least six months). The numbers of such pupils are obtained from the data collected by the Department for
Education at the annual school census in the Autumn term. The amount of money allocated to schools per pupil is subject to review by the Government/Department
for Education as part of the schools’ funding settlement.

As part of the process of receiving the Pupil Premium Grant, schools are required to report each year, at the start of the Autumn term, how much money they have
been allocated, how the money was spent the previous year and how they plan to spend the money this year. Schools must also report on the difference this spending
made to the learning of those children in receipt of Free School Meals or who
are Looked After.
