Our goal: every child reaches their full potential at Jericho School. This includes social, moral, spiritual and culture growth.  We believe every member of the school is able to achieve success and fulfillment. Our school improvement work is driven by high expectations and a belief that all children should make strong progress irrespective of gender, race, culture or socio-economic background.  We therefore aim to use Pupil Premium to maximum effect.

Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to pupils who are one of the following: Children Looked After, children who are currently eligible for Free School Meals, children who are within a service family, those children who have received Free School Meals in the last six years (Ever 6 children).  Since April 2014, Pupil Premium Plus has come into effect whereby children adopted from care, or those children who have left care under Special Guardianship order since December 2005, also now receive funds.

The Pupil Premium provides funding for pupils:

  • who have been in receipt of free school meals (FSM) at any point in the past 6 years (£1300 per child)
  • who have been continuously looked after for the past six months (£1900 per child)
  • for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces (£300 per child)

Children with Special Educational Needs or a Disability, who are also pupil premium pupils, will therefore receive these funds, which will be used to maximise and benefit each child on an individual basis bespoke to meeting their needs.

Our key ethos and aims include

  • Jericho Primary School adopts a whole school approach where all staff are accountable for our pupil premium children. 
  • We strive to ensure that there will be no gap in progress or attainment between pupil premium children and non-pupil premium children.
  • Pupil premium funds will directly benefit and target pupil premium children, they will be specifically tailored to meet their individual and group needs
  • Expenditure is evaluated using key performance indicators, including attendance, attainment, progress and punctuality.
  • Pupil premium is a key focus of teaching and learning and plays a crucial part in planning, monitoring and assessment cycles within school.
  • Direct involvement by all stakeholders including our Governors,
  • Governors are to be fully involved in the monitoring and evaluation of the Pupil Premium interventions, analysis and costings.

Please note that our evaluations for the previous year are now within the current years plan.
