St Giles C of E Academy Junior and Infant School Pupil Premium Strategy and Allocation
At St Giles C of E Academy we aspire to be a true community school, where pupils, parents, teachers, support staff, governors and other community members work together to achieve and celebrate success and progress for every pupil. Our vision – ‘Growing together’, encompasses our vision of our pupil premium allocation. We believe that ensuring that our children have a varied, immersive, stimulating and enhancing curriculum, which is tailored for their needs, will give them every opportunity to succeed; whether curricular or extra-curricular.
The DfE has given us the freedom to use the Pupil Premium as we see fit, based upon our knowledge of our pupil needs.
It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.
However, we are accountable for the use of this additional funding.
At St Giles C of E Academy, Pupil premium funding represents a significant proportion of our budget and we are committed to ensuring it is spent to maximum effect.
