The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and close any attainment gap between these children and their peers. The funding is allocated to schools for children from Reception to Year 11. 

At Shirley Junior School, our objective is to ensure pupils in vulnerable groups have accelerated rates of progress and achieve at least in line with other pupils with the same start point. The Pupil Premium contributes towards achieving this objective.

When making decisions about using Pupil Premium funding it is important to consider the context of the school and any challenges ahead. Our key objective in using the Pupil Premium Grant is to diminish any difference between children eligible for Pupil Premium and their peers. Through targeted interventions, we are working to eliminate cultural, academic and emotional barriers to learning and progress. These barriers are outlined in our Pupil Premium policy found at the top of the page. 

As a school, we collect data for all of our pupils on a termly basis. From here our Pupil Premium Lead then analyses the data of our Pupil Premium children. We then compare their progress and attainment to our non-Pupil Premium children. We also use Local Education Authority data summaries to compare our results against national and local expectations. This helps us to develop strategies and interventions to promote improvement. We use a range of monitoring to help us evaluate the strategies which we put in place. These are data, pupil progress meetings, pupils’ work, planning, and observations. From this process interventions are adapted or changed if they are not working. We regularly discuss our strategies, interventions and progress with the Senior Leadership Team and Governors. A member of the governing body is responsible for liaison with the school’s pupil premium lead.
