Pupil Premium

Reporting to Parents: Pupil Premium

 

The Pupil Premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gap between them and their peers. 

St George’s RC Primary School receives pupil premium for children that are cared for or adopted from care; children whose parents are in the armed forces; and for every pupil who has received free school meals at any time over the past 6 years.

Our Aims:

At St George’s R C School we ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all our pupils.

We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils from vulnerable groups including those from disadvantaged backgrounds.

In making provision for disadvantaged pupils, we recognise:

  • That not all pupils who receive free school meals will be disadvantaged.
  • That some pupils not entitled to free school meals may be disadvantaged.

Pupil Premium Grant is used following analysis of data, and assessments which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals. Limited funding and resources means that not all children in receipt of Pupil Premium will receive interventions at any one time

 

Current Allocation:

In 2017/18 St Georges RC Primary school will receive £52,360 in Pupil Premium.
