The pupil premium is additional funding that is given to schools to address the inequalities between children eligible for free school meals and their peers. Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, and for children of service personnel.
For this academic year (2016/2017) The Joseph Rowntree School received £112,308 + est £80,220.
You can see how this money is being spent and the impact of the school’s work on Pupil Premium by viewing the documents below.
While there has been some successes in narrowing the gap between Pupil Premium students and their peers in the last year (largely in increasing rates of progress at Key Stage 3), the school is aware that more can be done and this has formed a key part of the development plan for the coming year.
