What is the Pupil Premium?
The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.
Pupil premium funding is available to:
Pupil Premium Strategy 2016-2017
At St John Vianney Catholic Primary we are committed to ensuring that each individual pupil receives the very best education allowing them to reach their full potential academically and socially.
This belief is reflected in our school mission:
“In our school children, staff, parents and carers, governors and parish will work together to create a caring, learning environment with Our Lord as the focal point in which each child is valued as an individual, nurtured and encouraged to fulfil his/her potential.”
Our ethos and learning culture ensures that we have the highest expectations and that we continually strive to ensure that no pupil is left behind.
When deciding how to spend the pupil premium grant it is important that we look at the potential barriers to learning faced by pupil premium pupils in the context of our school. The reasons for underachievement are many and varied and could include; less support at home, leading to reduced appreciation of the value of education; social and emotional difficulties due to complex family situations or attendance and punctuality difficulties. Each child entitled to the pupil premium grant is unique in their situation and our response to their needs must reflect this.
With this in mind, we aim to build the capacity and expertise to enable us to provide a highly personalised programme of support in order to allow each child to reach his/her full potential.
Our key objective in using the pupil premium grant is to narrow the attainment and achievement gap between those entitled to pupil premium and those not. Historically pupils at SJV achieve and attain well, often at levels higher than those expected nationally. However, there is still a pattern, of pupil premium pupils doing better than other pupil premium pupils nationally but not as well as those who are not entitled to the pupil premium grant. We aim to narrow and even remove this gap.
We will ensure that:
