The Government allocates an amount of money to schools to support the most vulnerable children. This is known as Pupil Premium funding. The Government states ‘additional funding is given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.’ At St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, we believe that all children have the right to a quality education which includes a range of experiences. We aim to close the disadvantage gap by addressing inequalities and raising the attainment of those students in low-income families. A premium has also been introduced for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces. This service premium is designed to address the emotional and social well being of these pupils.
