Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals; those looked after by the Local Authority and the children of armed service personnel.

All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received, how this is being used and the impact of the funding.

Priorities

  • To narrow the achievement gap for disadvantaged children
  • To provide experiences that broaden horizons and raise aspirations
  • To facilitate resources to enhance social and emotional development

All members of staff and governors accept responsibility for socially disadvantaged pupils and are committed to meeting their pastoral, social and academic needs. Sawtry Junior Academy is committed to “narrowing the gap” between these vulnerable pupils and all pupils nationally and the pupil premium grant supports this work. We recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals and funding is allocated to support all pupils or group of pupils that the academy recognises as being socially disadvantaged. Miss Warren is our named Pupil Premium champion and she works with students, academy councillors, the senior leadership team, parents and staff to ensure the needs of Pupil Premium students are being met. 

Reporting pupil premium

  • The Principal is responsible for reporting to the Academy councillor and the Academy councillors are responsible for reporting to parents.
  • Governors report to parents via the school website.
  • In addition, the school Pupil premium champion and the Senior leadership team, collect and analyse data about pupil premium cohorts and this is used to set new targets and draw up Action Plans for meeting these targets.
