Pupil Premium Strategy
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, we ensure that the best available research underpins our decisions. By using the Education Endowment Foundation Toolkit, we ensure that money is directed using effective, well-researched interventions and strategies.

Driving principles, include:
