NJS is innovative and flexible in its use of Pupil Premium funding. We are fully committed to raising achievement and aspirations for all learners.
Funding is allocated to schools according to the number of pupils on roll who are:
• On Free School Meals (FSM)
• Looked After Children (LAC), including adopted children and those on Residence or Special Guardianship Orders
• Pupils from Armed Service families
Resources are limited and not all children from these three categories will receive intervention at any one time. We constantly track, target and monitor the needs, well-being and academic progress of all children and priority for intervention will be given to individual or wider groups of children deemed to be at risk of falling behind their peers or where learning progress is below age related expectation. From time to time, some children may be deemed vulnerable or in challenging circumstances and pupil premium resources may be utilised to support those children and their families in order to bring about raised self esteem and learning confidence.
