Pupil Premium

Mengham Junior School Pupil Premium Reporting to Parents

The Department for Education website states:

  • The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for FSM (Free school meals) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings and children who have been in Local Authority care, continuously for more than six months.
  • The Government believes the Pupil Premium, which is additional funding, is the best way to address current inequalities to children.
  • It is for schools to decide how to spend Pupil Premium as they are best placed to assess what is needed. But they are held accountable for how they have used funding to support pupils from low income families.

Principles

At Mengham Junior School:

  • We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of the pupils.
  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups.
  • We recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals.

At Mengham Junior School each child is treated as an individual and interventions are tracked on an individual basis.

What % of children eligible for FSMs are on track for age related expectations from their starting point in reading, writing and maths in all year groups? (attainment and progress)

 

What are the average attendance figures for pupils eligible for FSMs and how do they compare with school and national averages for both FSM and non-FSM children?
