Turnfurlong Junior School

Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium funding is allocated to schools based on the number of children eligible for free school meals.  It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.  It is expected that this funding is used to help and support these pupils and to ensure they make good progress.

Pupil Premium Provision and Interventions:
No one child is the same and thus this is reflected in the wide variety of ways Pupil Premium is utilised.  The provision provided encompasses both direct approaches to ‘narrowing the gap’ and other more creative interventions,  which, subsequently influence academic achievement and very importantly enhance social and emotional well-being.

We believe that Pupil Premium should be used to impact the wider school but it is also pertinent that the Pupil Premium is specifically tailored to meet the needs of individual children entitled to Pupil Premium, in addition to, and in different ways from our other intervention programmes. 

Interventions for each pupil are decided on an individual,  needs-led basis, thus enabling the children to benefit from more than one intervention directly matched to their needs.  The Pupil Premium strategy is reviewed annually in the Summer Term.

Free school meals including Pupil Premium are available to pupils in years 3 and above whose  parents receive certain benefits.
