Pupil Premium Report to Parents September 2016

Overview

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011, and paid by means of a specific grant based on the school census figures for pupils registered as eligible for FSM in reception to Year 11. For looked after children the Pupil premium was calculated using the Children Looked After data returns(SSDA903). A premium has also been introduced for children whose parents are currently serving inthe armed forces. This service premium is designed to address the emotional and social well-being ofthese pupils.

The Pupil Premium grant is additional to main school funding and it will be used by Sutton St James School in the following ways:-
