Pupil Premium Funding Principles

Spending Allocation 2015-16

All staff and students at John Colet School believe that through hard work, inspiration, mutual respect and enjoyment, we will achieve success together. We are committed to the principle that every student fulfils their potential.

We use our pupil premium funding to support this objective. The Government introduced the Pupil Premium into main school funding to address inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM), looked after children or children of armed forces families and their peers by ensuring that funding reaches the pupils who need it most.

As part of this policy the Government has stated that it is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, however we are expected to publish details of this spending, the reasons for our choices and the impact made. During the 2015/2016 academic year, Free School Meal 6 students represent 12% of our total student population and Service Children 6% respectively. Our primary objectives are to raise the academic attainment and progress of our FSM6 students and support the social and emotional wellbeing of our services’ students.

We aim to do this in a number of ways and these strategies are evaluated frequently and reviewed based on their impact.
