COVID Support Information

Background:

Pupil Premium funding is a government initiative designed to target resources to those pupils deemed to be from a disadvantaged background. Specifically, the Pupil Premium money is for those pupils who have been on Free School Meals (FSM) at any point over the past 6 years (Ever6) or those children who have been looked after continuously for at least 6 months (CLA).

For the year 2020/2021 the Pupil Premium has a value of £955 per eligible pupil in secondary education (£2300 for those who are looked after or adopted from care).  Neither the government nor any government agency has dictated how the Pupil Premium money should be spent, but what is clear is that the money should be used to promote strategies which narrow the attainment gap between the highest and lowest achieving pupils, and which enable eligible pupils to thrive, particularly if they demonstrate high ability.

*the numbers in brackets represent the scores for the actual 6 students that have PPI.  The discrepancy is due to a methodology used to categorise PPI students at JFS prior to 2016. Where by the students that JFS gave additional funding for free school meals were incorrectly counted in the PPI measure.
