The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers. Many of our partner schools choose to use their Pupil Premium to give these young people the chance to benefit from the Jamie’s Farm experience with very positive results.
Jamie’s Farm meets recommendations from three strands of the Education Endowment Foundation’s (EEF) teaching and learning toolkit, which provides guidance on how to spend Pupil Premium most effectively, using all available published evidence. Each of these strands adds 3 or more months of progress, which could potentially equate to a higher cumulative total if used in combination.
