Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium Funding?

At St Joseph’s, we want all children to have the best opportunities to succeed, regardless of their individual circumstances.


If your child is eligible for Free School Meals or has been eligible for Free School Meals at any time in the last six years, funding is provided by the government to ensure that he/she is well equipped to take advantage of the educational opportunities provided by the school.  The school is held to account for the achievements and progress of every child so we use Pupil Premium funding to help us make sure that no-one underachieves simply because of their ability to pay for things.


What does the funding provide?

We offer a full package of curriculum and learning support within the school and we are also able to to provide financial support to enable children to take part in activities that are normally paid for by parents.

The table below shows financial support currently provided by the school to pupils who are eligible for Free School Meals.  Parents whose children are eligible for any of these items may apply for them in the normal way at the school office and we will meet the cost from our funding.
