Pupil Premium Funding
The Pupil Premium is grant funding and is in addition to the school’s Delegated Budget. It is allocated to children who:
- are in receipt of free school meals or have been in the last 6 years
- children who are looked after or adopted
- children of service families.
Pupil Premium funding is used to raise attainment, promote social skills, independent learning and positive behaviour in order to increase pupil progress. In addition, it is used to ensure children have access to educational activities that incur additional costs that might not be able to be met by parents.
The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding reaches the pupils that need it most.
In most cases the Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable. It is for the school to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent. However, schools will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families.
At St Peter’s we use the money to support a range of different aspects of school life with a focus on every child accessing a wide range of opportunities and making the best progress they can in their time here.
