Pupil Premium at IHJS
Each year the school is allocated a sum of money called the Pupil Premium Funding. This is to support a specifically targeted group of pupils, often at risk of underachievement. These pupils fall under the criteria of eligibility for free school meals, those children who are looked after children and children whose parents are in the armed forces.
Because each child is an individual, there is no set way in which we spend this money to support them. Each child who is entitled, has their needs assessed and spending opportunities identified to best target them on their journey to success.
Part of the funding enables these pupils to have financial support towards school trips, uniform and other opportunities that might otherwise not be available to particular families.
Every child is tracked and funding is matched to academic progress and support. If you would like to discuss how the funding is matched to your particular child, then the Headteacher and Inclusion Manager would be happy to explain this to you fully and in complete confidence.
