Garland Junior School Pupil Premium Strategy

At Garland Junior School, our shared vision for all children is: 'Believe in Yourself'. We promote the idea that everyone can be successful and achieve whatever they wish. Our inclusive approach centres on the core values of determination, respect and teamwork.

For the children in receipt of Pupil Premium funding, this high expectation and belief is key. As a fully inclusive school, we wish to see all children reach their potential, regardless of their background. Through the use of the Pupil Premium funding we strive to 'level the playing field', removing barriers to learning and allowing all children to achieve success. The funding is used in conjunction with high quality teaching and an engaging curriculum that aims to meet the needs of everyone.

Children are eligible for Pupil Premium funding if families currently recieve free school meals, or have done so in the past 6 years. This money, which comes directly into school, is used in many different ways to ensure these children make good progress throughout their time in education.

In the documents below you can find our strategy of how we are using this funding in school and the impact the funding has had during the last academic year.    

The Senior Leader with responsibility for Pupil Premium is the Deputy Headteacher, Tom Brunson. The governor leading this area is Peter Maynard. Please contact them via the school office if you have any questions.
