Pupil Premium

 St John’s CE Primary School Pupil Premium Spend Plan

 The Government introduced the Pupil Premium in April 2011, as a means of addressing underlying inequalities between children from low income families who are eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers, by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. There are three categories of pupils that are eligible: 

Children who are either currently eligible for FSM or have been eligible for FSM in the past six years; 

  • Children who have been looked after by a local authority (in care) continuously for more than six months; 
  • Children who have been adopted from care 
  • Children of Armed Forces Personnel
