The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and in 2012–13 individual schools were allocated 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.
You can view or download our Pupil Premium allocation and find out how this has been used at our school.
We believe that all pupils, including those entitled to free school meals should be given the opportunity to reach their full potential through support, experience and the tools necessary to support their learning, their independence and their achievement.
To this effect we at St Josephs RC School will direct pupil premium funding towards resources, activities, staffing etc. to support the above rationale.
Further information can be found in our Pupil Premium Policy located in our School Policies section.

The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15 to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.
The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
