Pupil Premium

The government’s Pupil Premium funding is used to support the learning and development of our disadvantaged children and can be used on specific interventions or on whole school approaches. 


We gain additional Pupil Premium funding, if your child: 


  • Is currently eligible for Free School Meals (FSM)

  • Has at any point during the last 6 years received FSM (known as Ever 6 FSM)

  • Is adopted from local authority care or has since left care

  • Has a parent who currently works in the armed forces or has done so in the last 5 years (Ever 5 In Service Child)


At St John's, we use Pupil Premium funding through a variety of imaginative ways to enhance the learning of our vulnerable pupils. 


But we also recognise that education is not just about academic attainment and at our school we place a great importance on the social and emotional well-being of our pupils through our vast range of Early Help and wellbeing programme.  Working closely with parents, we also develop strong partnerships and build relationships to help tackle issues such as behaviour and attendance.


Date of next review: September 2022


If you think your child may be eligible for extra funding, please apply through the school office

St. John's C of E is a primary school in Dorking
