Apply for Free School Meals Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch-Up Premium

2017/2018 Pupil Premium

Background

Pupil Premium is a Government initiative which was first introduced in April 2011.  The school receives funding each financial year from the Dfe, with the amount determined by the number of students receiving free school meals (FSM) in the last 6 years, are looked after in the care of the local authority or are from military families. The funding is provided to ensure that these students are not disadvantaged in any way and receive the necessary support to achieve their full potential.

The DFE has given us the freedom to use the Pupil Premium grant as we see fit, based on our knowledge of our pupils’ needs. However, we are accountable for the use of this additional funding. The use of Pupil Premium funding is targeted to support a wide variety of highly effective intervention strategies.

The purpose of the Pupil Premium Policy

In England and Wales, statistics indicate that there is a significant gap in the academic performance of pupils who receive free school meals (and/or who are looked after) and those who are not. On average, they underperform academically compared to their peers.

At St Peter’s, we strive to improve the progress and attainment of all our pupils. We strongly believe that no child should be left behind and it is not about where you come from, but your thirst for knowledge, and your dedication and commitment to learning that make the difference between success and failure.  All our staff are extremely committed to ensuring that all pupils achieve their full potential regardless of their individual starting points.
