Pupil Premium

John T. Rice Infant and Nursery School is an averaged sized infant school, situated on the Newlands estate which is part of the Forest Town area of Mansfield. The school lies a short distance away from both the Newark-Mansfield boundary. The school has been growing in size over the last few years with 190 children on roll in Autumn Term 2018.  The school serves an ex-mining community with approximately half of our children residing in Forest Town East (our catchment area) and the rest coming from out of catchment. The majority of these children reside in Clipstone.  In comparison with national figures, both of these areas have high levels of social disadvantage.

During the academic year 2018-2019, there are 25% of children in receipt of free school meals and eligible for Pupil Premium Funding. It is our aim that children who are eligible for Pupil Premium Funding attain in line with children who do not receive Pupil Premium Funding and through our Pupil Premium Strategy below we support these pupils in achieving this.

 

Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
