Our curriculum is academically challenging whilst being appropriate to every child's individual needs.
In certain areas e.g. music, art and sport your child will be taught by a specialist.
At St James's our children achieve very well because of a
combination of excellent teaching of a
dynamic curriculum, group support such as SEN and gifted and talented,
parental involvement and vibrant leadership.
During the period April 2011 to March 2012, St James’s Catholic Primary School received a total of £3,904
Pupil Premium direct grant. For the period April 2012 to March 2013 the sum of £6,000
is expected. In the academic year 2011/2012 the percentage of students receiving Free School Meals was 2.1%.
Allocation and Impact of Pupil Premium
The Pupil Premium grant is used to enhance pupils learning and to assist financially when required.
Provision mapping within the school clearly marks interventions for FSM pupils and their progress is closely monitored.
Pupils who are not making expected progress in English and Maths participate in intervention programmes identified by the
Senco and receive extra support in the classroom and/or in groups.
Pupils at St James’s attend many curriculum related trips and financial help is given to those pupils, who are entitled to FSM and
who have been targeted as attending the trips. Music lessons are also subsidised for pupils who are entitled to FSM.
