St Patrick's Catholic Primary School

‘Following the loving example shown by Jesus Christ’

Pupil Premium

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.

 

Who is Eligible?

 

  • Every child in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM)
  • Any child who has previously received FSM in the last 6 years
  • Children who are in care or have been “looked after” for more than 6 months
  • Any child whose parents are serving in the Armed Forces

 

How can the Pupil Premium be spent?

 

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

  • Financial support with uniform costs

 

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.
