Publicly-funded schools in England, such as Fulwell Junior School, get extra funding from the government to help us improve the attainment of our disadvantaged pupils.

Evidence shows that children from disadvantaged backgrounds:

  • generally face extra challenges in reaching their potential at school
  • often do not perform as well as their peers

The pupil premium grant is designed to allow schools to help disadvantaged pupils by improving their progress and the exam results they achieve.

The pupil premium is not based on ability. Pupils whom claim free school meals, or who have claimed free school meals in the last 6 years qualify for extra funding.

Funding is also available, to help with pastoral support, for every pupil with a parent who:

  • is serving in HM Forces
  • has retired on a pension from the Ministry of Defence

If you feel your child would be eligible please contact the school business manager.

We understand that many families are under financial strain, more than ever in the current financial climate. We are always willing to support families in receipt of Pupil Premium funding, who are struggling with school related costs, e.g. uniform, school trips, Breakfast Club, equipment etc.  If you feel you need this additional support, please contact the school office where your concerns will be passed on sensitively to the Senior Leadership.

Research shows that the most academically able pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds are most at risk of under-performing. The DfE recommends that ‘schools should focus on these pupils just as much as pupils with low results.’

The three year strategic plan below shows how we use the funding at Fulwell Junior School.

Linked financial information

It is a requirement of the DfE's Financial Value Standard that schools publish on their website a link to the schools financial benchmarking website where Consistent Financial Reporting (CFR) statement of income, expenditure and balances is published. The link below takes you to the DfE website where comparisons can be made to other schools of a similar benchmark set.

Other Funds

Across the school year, we try and raise voluntary funds to support additional activities and experiences for our children. This can involve fetes, sponsored events, donations from outside organisations not linked to the designated school grant funding etc. This income constitutes the School Voluntary Fund, a non-statutory fund that falls outside the remit of our designated school budget. This fund is still robustly audited by the Together for Chidlren Finance Team and reported to Govenrors annually. Further information on the fund is available on writtent request to the school.
