Pupil Premium Funding at St James’ VA Lower School
The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is a special grant given to all schools to support pupils who may be disadvantaged achieve as well as their peers. Schools are required to report their plans and the impact of previous plans on an annual basis.
When considering how to spend our funding, we are mindful of the following principles:
raising aspiration - we want all our children to experience and want the very best
- analysing data - we are rigorous in analysing our data so we know where our strengths and areas for development are
- identification of pupils - we ensure that every child is known and understood
- improving quality first teaching - ensuring that every child is taught well
- individualising support - we can respond to individual needs because we know our children well
