Jersey Premium is a targeted funding programme designed to support schools in raising the attainment of identified pupils. At Samares School we believe that every pupil deserves the best start in life and the additional funding we receive from Jersey Premium is used to ensure that all children achieve the best from their education.
We appreciate that for some, there will be significant barriers to learning, despite this, we recognise the potential of every learner. Research shows that the most effective way to improve outcomes for children is through the quality of teaching. As a school, we are focused on providing the highest quality teaching to improve outcomes for pupils, with a commitment to accelerating the progress of all pupils.
We have adopted a tiered approach at Samares, allowing the school to focus on a series of targeted strategies. All of our projects are research-based and driven by the needs of our school. The projects funded through Jersey Premium continue to focus on: quality teaching, additional interventions, and pastoral care.
