Pupil Premium

The school’s work to promote pupils’ personal development and welfare is outstanding.

Ofsted 2018

The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to all publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged children.

This additional funding is used by the Academy to address any underlying inequalities for eligible pupils by increasing social mobility, enabling pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds to achieve high academic standards and to close the attainment gap with the outcomes of those who are not eligible.

From 2013 all primary schools received £950 per eligible pupil. Eligibility is determined by:

  • Registered for free school meals

  • Have been in public care for 6 months

  • Have parents who are in the armed forces

For 2014 the government increased the amount of funding to £1320 per pupil and expanded eligibility to:

  • Pupils who have been looked after for x1 day or more

  • Children adopted from care on or after 30th December 2005 or those who left care under a Special Guardianship order

  • Children under a Residence Order

The team at Dame Janet Primary Academy is committed to eliminating the gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers and the Pupil Premium is essential to this.
