The Pupil Premium is grant funding and is in addition to the school’s delegated budget. It was created by the government to address the inequalities between pupils. It is allocated according to the number of children on roll who are eligible for free school meals at any time in the last six years, who have been Looked After for more than six months, who are adopted or who have a parent in one of the armed forces. The school makes the decision as to how the Pupil Premium is spent. Pupil Premium funding is used to raise attainment as well as promoting social skills, independent learning and positive behaviour.
At West Leigh Junior School we believe that every child should be supported to succeed no matter what their background and we use the Pupil Premium funding to achieve this.
