Pupil Premium

PUPIL PREMIUM 2017 - 2018

The pupil premium was introduced in April 2011 and gives schools extra funding to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils from reception to year 11.

In the 2017 to 2018 financial year the school is receiving £1320 per student for every student who has been eligible for pupil premium at any point in the last 6 years.

Looked after children are allocated £1900. Service children are allocated £300.

The pupil premium is paid to the school and it is for the school to determine how it is spent. The school is required to publish an annual plan for the use of its pupil premium funding and to publish an annual report evaluating the impact of the funding.

Our Approach at St. Mary’s Primary School

At our school we recognise that each child is unique and will have different needs which may well vary throughout their time at our school. We feel that children who may have barriers to learning need support to perform as well as, or better than, their peers so that they can be successful in the next stages of their education and in their future career. High expectations are key to helping remove the attainment gaps.

·         Some of the pupils for whom the Pupil Premium provides support are working below the level of their peers and the school needs to identify the most appropriate support.

·         Some pupils may be experiencing social, emotional or psychological barriers to learning as a result of experiences in their lives. Again it is essential that we explore these issues so school can find the best way to support them.

·         There are also other pupils who are attaining well at school, either at the same level or higher than their peers. We recognise the need to provide additional support or fund additional opportunities for such pupils to improve and enhance their experiences.
