Pupil Premium Statement
The pupil premium is an opportunity to narrow the gap in achievement
between disadvantaged pupils and their peers
The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months and children who come from Services families. This will also include pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure).
Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit.
Allocation of the grant is based on the number of pupils with the entitlement at the time of the January census.
The Government has given every Primary School funding to develop Physical education and competitive sport.

Catch Up Premium
The Government announced a £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up. Further guidance has now been released and can be viewed at www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-catch-up-premium.
Schools allocations are calculated on a per pupil basis, providing each mainstream school with a total of £80 for each pupil in Reception through to Year 6.
This means Golcar JIN School was in receipt of £34,040 in 2020-21 to help support our pupils.
The recovery premium funding allocation this academic year (2021-22) is £7395 which is used to support our pupils.
Schools have the flexibility to spend their funding in the best way for their cohort and circumstances. To support schools to make the best use of this funding, the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) has published a support guide for schools with evidence-based approaches to catch up for all pupils. We have considered this when planning our approach for the use of this funding.
Barriers to getting pupils back on track:
- Loss of learning due to school closure
- Pupil attitudes to learning and resilience and stamina to access learning for longer periods of time
- Changes in behaviour, including anxiety, self-esteem and self confidence
- Pupils not being able to make links to previous learning
- Phonics knowledge and application for pupils in EYFS and KS1
- Foundations of learning in Early Years
