In 2011-12 the Government launched its Pupil Premium funding. This money is sent to schools based on the numbers of pupils in the school who are eligible for Free School Meals [FSM]. From 2012-13, it has been expanded to include all children who have been eligible for FSM within the last 6 years.
This money is allocated to initiatives to ensure pupils reach their full potential, both academically and socially.

If your child does not have Free School Meals, but may be eligible because of your family’s income level, please contact the office [in confidence] to register them. Even if you do not wish them to have meals, this would mean the school could still claim Pupil Premium Funding that may be used to help your child.
Pupils in receipt of pupil premium at St George’s Junior School are carefully monitored to ensure they make progress in comparison to their peers; both within their classroom, across the year group and nationally.
School attainment data shows are pupils are making progress. However, in certain cases, additional intervention is provided if school feels progress is below national average.
Pupil premium children also benefit from extra curricular activities provided by school and outside agencies. These opportunities ensure pupils benefit from the wider aspect of school life.
