Pupil Premium

Introduction

St Ann’s Heath Junior School aim to provide an education where every child achieves their full potential. We have high expectations of pupils’ learning and behaviour and plan carefully to meet the needs of all children.

What is Pupil Premium?

Pupil premium funding is received for every child who qualifies for free school meals (FSM) currently or who has qualified in the past six years (Ever 6). It is also received for Looked after Children (LAC) and previously looked after children (PLAC).

The Pupil Premium Grant is allocated to a school based on data from the January census. Schools are free to allocate and spend the Pupil Premium Grant in the way they deem most appropriate, however, every school is accountable for ensuring this grant is deployed effectively to progress the learning of eligible pupils.

The funding is used to:

  • Raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities to reach their potential
  • Support children and young people with parents in the armed forces.
