Pupil Premium

 

 

Pupil Premium and Interventions.

No one child is the same and this is reflected in the wide variety of ways pupil premium at St James & St John School is utilised. The provision provided encompasses both direct approaches to ‘narrowing the gap’ and other more creative interventions, which subsequently influence academic achievement and very importantly enhance children’s social and emotional well-being. At St James & St John C of E School pupil premium funding is specifically tailored to meet the needs of individual disadvantaged children, in addition to and in different ways from other intervention programmes. Interventions for each pupil are decided on an individual, needs-led basis thus enabling the children to benefit from more than one intervention which directly meets their needs.
