Pupil Premium

For details of our school sports and use of this funding, please see the 'About Us' menu and select 'School Sport and Funding' page.

Whitehall Junior School is committed to ensuring all pupils fulfil their potential and reach for excellence.  We accept that there are factors that can hinder this progress for some children and we are determined to work actively to reduce the impact of these barriers.  Our Pupil Premium Grant is used to support children and families who are entitled to receive the Pupil Premium Funding so that we can work to narrow any attainment gap.

Whitehall Junior School receives additional funding for Pupil Premium pupils. We report on our spending and their progress each year.


If you believe your child may be eligible for Free School Meals, please access this menu within the 'parents' section of this website or click here.  IMPORTANT:  Please be aware that even if your child is entitled to Free School Meals and you do not wish for them to have this service, it is important that you still register your child's entitlement as they would still receive additional funding which can be used by the school to support them in reaching their full potential through many other services the school provides.
