St Mary's Catholic Primary School Pupil Premium Funding 2017 - 2018

The Government allocates an amount of money to schools to support the most vulnerable children. This is known as Pupil Premium funding. The Government states ‘additional funding is given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.’ At St Mary’s Catholic Primary School, we believe that all children have the right to a quality education which includes a range of experiences.  We aim to close the disadvantage gap by addrressing inequalities and raising the attainment of those students in low-income families.

Funding is allocated for:

 Pupils eligible for Free School Meals  £1,320 pp
 Pupils who are looked after or adopted  £1,900 pp
 Pupils recorded as being of Service Personnel  £   300 pp

“Schools will have the freedom to spend the Premium, which is additional to the underlying schools budget, in a way they think will best support the raising of attainment for the most vulnerable pupils”. (DFE website)
