Pupil Premium is additional government funding given to schools to close the attainment gap between children from low income and other disadvantaged families, and their peers.
Our Pupil Premium Champion is Mrs Sharon Conway.
As a school, we decide how the Pupil Premium is spent for the benefit of the entitled pupils. Funding will be allocated following a ‘needs analysis’ which will identify priority groups or individuals for;
Extra support and 1:1 tuition
Challenge and support interventions
Reduced rates for music
lessons, clubs and visits
At St Patrick's we monitor the progress and attainment of all children along with particular groups, so that we can adjust our curriculum and support, to raise standards. Our objective is to ensure pupils in vulnerable groups have accelerated rates of progress and achieve at least in line with other pupils. The Pupil Premium Grant contributes towards achieving this objective.
