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.
Pupil Premium funding is used to to address the barriers to learning that are faced by children in receipt of this grant. We use this funding to ensure that these children:
- have similar educational and social opportunities as other children
- get support in their learning to ensure they have the potential to make the same rate of progress as others
- develop a greater sense of self-belief & self-confidence
- develop self-esteem
- can access resources for learning both in school and at home
- get additional specialist support that they may need to achieve their potential (such as Speech and language interventions).
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.
The progress and achievement of all children are monitored very closely at St Peter’s, and we endeavour to ensure that the PPG funding is used in a way that ensure the best possible outcomes break down the barriers to learning faced by children in receipt of this funding.
