Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium at Woolton Hill Junior School


Introduced in 2011, pupil premium is a sum of money given to schools each year by the Government to improve the attainment of children who are or have been in receipt of free school meals. 


Here at Woolton Hill Junior School, we are proud of the nurturing and academic opportunities we are able to provide our Pupil premium children with.  We aim to provide an educational experience that is inclusive for all. Staff support Pupil Premium students with High Quality Teaching and by  ensuring that they are provided with the same opportunities and experiences as their non-PP peers in every aspect of school life.


Pupil Premium provision is led by our Inclusion Lead, Mrs Dickens.  Mrs Dickens regularly meets with class teachers to ensure every Pupil Premium student's needs are met in school.

For more information on how we support our children, please see the following documents.
