Pupil Premium is a payment made to schools by the Government. It makes up part of the school’s funding, is received into our budget and is made available for use throughout the whole school. Schools are free to decide how to allocate this funding to best support the raising of attainment for the most vulnerable pupils.
To register your child for Pupil Premium please use this link.
There is also a direct link to apply on our School Gateway dinner app that all parents / carers have.
At Jump Primary School, we believe that all children are entitled to an education which allows every child to achieve their potential regardless of their starting point in life or personal circumstances. The government believes that the additional funding provided for Pupil Premium children is the best way to tackle those inequalities to enable children to have the best outcomes.
Our School Research into Pupil Premium
The pupil premium is a Government initiative that targets extra money at pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds, which research shows, underachieve compared to their peers. The premium is provided to support these pupils in reaching national standards.
Free school meals are used as an indicator for deprivation and a fixed amount of money, per pupil, is deployed to schools and must be used to ‘close the attainment gap’ for FSM children.
As per DFE guidance, The Pupil Premium Strategy is on the set form. Please click the link to see how we invest our money into the children using the key elements from the EEF (Education Endowment Foundation) to ensure that the Pupil Premium children get the best education and maximise their learning opportunities to ‘narrow the gap.’
