Pupil Premium is an allocation of funding provided to schools to support children who may be vulnerable to underachievement.
The Pupil Premium Grant provides additional funding for children who have been eligible for free school meals in any of the previous six years, as well as looked after and adopted children. It also provides a smaller amount of funding for children who have been eligible for the service child premium at any point in the last five years.
All schools are required to report on the amount of funding and how it is being used.
The Governing Body of St Peter’s have decided that this grant will be most effectively spent on supporting children’s learning in the classroom by providing high quality first teaching, curriculum support, targeted intervention, engagement and enrichment activities, pastoral support and social and behavioural intervention.
As with all children at St Peter’s, to ensure maximum impact the needs of children entitled to the Pupil Premium are clearly identified, steps are taken to meet their individual needs and their progress is closely monitored through school. Where small group / 1:1 support is felt to be most beneficial, Pupil Premium funding will be used to support this provision.
