What is Pupil Premium?
Pupil Premium is a funding allocated to schools by the Department of Education to increase social mobility and reduce the gap in performance between pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds and their peers. Its purpose is to raise attainment, accelerate progress and fulfil the achievement potential of all children.
Schools receive funding for each disadvantaged pupil and can use the funding flexibly, in the best interests of eligible pupils. It is up to schools to decide how to spend the Pupil Premium funding because they are best placed to assess what additional educational provision should be put in place to ensure maximum progress for all the children within their care. All schools will be held accountable for how they have used the Pupil Premium funding and the impact it has had on the children’s learning.

A Longer Term Strategy
Greenway Junior School takes a longer-term view of the support the grant provides. Leaders plan the use of the grant to support children as they pass through the whole school to the next stage of their education/destination. We do this by aligning our Pupil Premium strategy with our wider school improvement planning.
