Pupil Premium Strategy

The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. Schools are required to publish the way in which the pupil premium funding is spent each year. Nationally, children who are eligible for free school meals generally do not achieve as well as those who aren't eligible.

Please click on the reports below detailing how our school has used the allocated pupil premium money.

 At Whiston J & I school, we have high aspirations and ambitions that all children should reach their potential . We are committed to ensuring it is spent to maximise impact by focussing on the development of academic progress and the physical and emotional wellbeing of all children.  

Aims of Pupil Premium at Whiston Junior and Infant School:

  • We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils.
  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed.
  • In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged.
  • We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals.
  • We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.
  • Pupil Premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals.
  • Limited funding and resources means that not all children receiving free school meals will be in receipt of
  • Pupil Premium interventions at one time.
