Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
All schools are now allocated money according to the number of children eligible for free school meals and children designated as “looked after”. This is called the Pupil Premium and schools are able to spend this money to narrow the gap in children’s learning. At Meath Green Junior School we specifically use the fund to focus on three main areas that we know, based on academic and educational research, will make a difference to the future life chances of our young people:
a) Ensuring excellent academic progress
(eg. Specific literacy and numeracy interventions)
b) Enabling wider engagement and participation
(eg. Support for residential trips and educational visits)
c) Promoting personal wellbeing and attendance
(eg. Funding of Learning Space Counsellor)
The documents below set out in greater detail how we used these funds and the impact we saw as a result.
