The John Bentley School has a culture of high expectation for every pupil. Our ambition is to remove the barriers that may exist for our disadvantaged pupils so that they attain the same high standards as their non disadvantaged peers. We are determined to reduce the attainment and progress gap that exists on a national scale between disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged pupils to zero at JBS by August 2019. This will primarily be achieved through outstanding teaching and learning and increased opportunities.
The Pupil Premium (PP) was introduced in April 2011. It was allocated to children from low-income families, who were known to have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years (Ever 6 FSM), and children who had been looked after continuously for more than six months, or adopted from care.
This document below summarises PP allocation and student progress and achievement for the academic year 2017/2018, along with proposed expenditure for the academic year 2018/2019. The date of the next Pupil Premium strategy review is July 2019. However, the document will be regularly reviewed throughout the year by the PP Governor and myself.
If you have any questions about the Pupil Premium, please don’t hesitate to contact me and I would be happy to help.
