Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is an allocation of funding provided to schools to support children who may be vulnerable to underachievement. The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools on the basis of the number of students on roll known to be currently eligible for Free School Meals or who have claimed within the last 6 years, as well as students who have been looked after by the Local Authority. Children of members of the armed forces are also entitled to this funding. All schools are required to report on the amount of funding and how this is being used.

Principles

We organise teaching and learning at St Mary’s CE Primary School in order to meet the needs of all children in the best way. We allocate some of the Pupil Premium money to make sure all children have their needs met through quality first teaching. St Mary’s CE Primary School ensures that appropriate provision is made for children who belong to vulnerable groups and that our socially disadvantaged children have their needs adequately assessed and met. St Mary’s CE Primary School further supports these groups using many strategies that are beyond the remit of the expenditure report.
