Chater Junior School

Pupil Premium

All members of staff and governors at Chater Junior accept responsibility for ‘economically disadvantaged’ pupils and are committed to meeting their pastoral, social and academic needs within the school environment. We are committed to ‘Narrowing the Gap’ and the Pupil Premium funding is part of that process.

Provision will be made through facilitating access to education, the curriculum, and extra support and interventions.

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011. This is funding for children from low-income families who were eligible for free school meals, looked after children and those from families with parents in the Armed Forces.

Reporting Pupil Premium to Parents and Governors

It is the responsibility of the school to explain pupil premium expenditure to parents in the form of an annual statement. There is no set format for the report of pupil premium. Reports will be published annually on the school’s website.

This report will give information on how Pupil Premium has been used within school and the attainment and progress of pupils who are covered by the premium.

Reports will also detail progress made towards narrowing the gap through attainment and progress data. Reports on the progress of pupils supported by the Pupil Premium will be presented regularly to the Governing Body throughout the year.
