Pupil Premium

The Government introduced the Pupil Premium Grant in April 2011. For the year 2017/2018 there were a total of 39 /182 pupils (21% of the school), eligible for the grant. The Grant per Pupil was £1,320 and there was 2 Children in Care / adoption (£1900 per child) 4 service children (£300 per child).  The pupil premium grant has been widened to include those children who have been eligible for FSM in the past 6 years (Ever 6 measure).  

This grant, which is additional to the main school funding, is seen by the government as the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children from disadvantaged backgrounds who are eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their more advantaged peers.

The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and must be clearly identifiable. Schools can decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils.

At Cam Woodfield Junior School we support all pupils. We do this by providing high quality classroom teaching supplemented by a range of interventions to support vulnerable learners as and when required. The Headteacher and The Governing Body monitor the impact of all spending and interventions, including the Pupil Premium.

Pupil Premium

The school received £57660, 39 pupils currently on roll (21% of the school). This includes Children in Care Premium.

Pupil Premium Pupils (now described as Disadvantaged Pupils)

The government believes that pupil premium, which is additional to the main school funding, is the best way of addressing the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) or have been eligible for FSM in the past 6 years (Ever 6).

Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months or are form service personnel families.
