Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium is additional funding received by schools to support vulnerable and disadvantaged pupils.


At St John the Evangelist Infant and Nursery School we ensure that the needs of all pupils, including those who belong to disadvantaged groups, are met through consistently high quality whole class teaching. Where we feel necessary, we also offer extra support for groups and individuals. This support could be focused on pupils’ emotional wellbeing, social skills, or academic skills and is linked to targets set for individual children dependent on their vulnerability.

In March 2016 Ofsted reported that:

‘Pupils entitled to the support from the pupil premium funding generally achieve well……….. The funding is carefully and inventively spent’.

Pupil Premium funding is provided for the support of children who are eligible for free school meals. The funding also supports children who are ‘looked after’ and who are under a special guardianship or are adopted, this comes under Pupil Premium Plus funding. Pupils from service families are eligible for Service Pupil Premium funding and Early Years Premium supports pupils in Nursery.

If you think you may be entitled to apply for Pupil Premium funding please contact the school office who will put you in touch with Mrs Blakemore our Inclusion Manager.

In the year September 2016-July 2017 St John the Evangelist Infant and Nursery School received £16,500 for Pupil Premium based on 15 pupils. We planned how this money was to be spent based on the specific needs of our children.  The actual spend, and the attainment of the pupils, was monitored in order to review the impact of this targeted funding.  In the year September 2017-July 2018 we expect to receive £9540 based on 8 pupils.

To read about how we spent the money last year, the impact it had, and how we plan to spend the funding this year please download our strategy statement below.
