Pupil Premium

The Government believes that Pupil Premium funding additional to the delegated school budget, is the best way to address underachievement and inequalities between disadvantaged and other pupils by ensuring funding is targeted at the children who need it most.

Pupil Premium funding is identifiable within the school’s income but is not ring-fenced.

Park Road Junior Infant and Nursery School aims to close any gaps in achievement, rather than simply ‘narrow’ gaps, between any category of disadvantaged and ‘other’ pupils.

It is for individual schools to decide how Pupil Premium funding is spent in order to raise the attainments and achievements of this group of pupils, and so the ways in which Park Road Junior Infant and Nursery School uses its Pupil Premium funding each year may be different to that in other schools, and may change from year to year.

Schools are accountable, through Ofsted, for how they spend the Pupil Premium and Covid Recovery funding, and for the impact it has on children’s learning.

Other additional funding has come to schools during the pandemic, for 'Covid Recovery', additional costs related to significant staff asbence, and to part-fund out-of-hours tuition through the National Tuition Programme.

For 2021 DfE has implemented a standardised format for all schools to use in presenting their Pupil Premium Strategy.  Our statement is available below.
