Pupil Premium at Ellel St. John’s School
Pupil premium is funding to improve education outcomes for disadvantaged pupils in schools in England. Evidence shows that disadvantaged children generally face additional challenges in reaching their potential at school and often do not perform as well as other pupils.
The amount of this additional funding varies from school to school and is dependent on 3 factors:
1. the number of children in school who are/have been in the care of the local authority,
2. the number who have/ have had an entitlement to a free school meal in the past 6 years (separate from KS1 children who are all currently entitled to a free school meal).
3. the number who have a parent(s) in the armed forces.
Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
