Pupil Premium at Ripponden J&I School

The government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils that need it most. Find out more about the Pupil Premium at The Department for Education.

We have planned our Pupil Premium spend using research-based evidence from the EEF (Education Endowment Foundation), which looked at the most effective strategies to boost attainment and progress in school. 

Schools are accountable for the ways in which they choose to spend their Pupil Premium funding. We have a relatively low amount of Pupil Premium funding in school (13% compared to 17.3% nationally) and this is all the more important that we use this money carefully. Schools receive £1320 per child are registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years.
