Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

Introduced in 2011, the pupil premium is a sum of money given to schools each year by the Government to improve the attainment of disadvantaged children.

This is based on research showing that children from low income families perform less well at school than their peers. Often, children who are entitled to pupil premium face challenges such as poor language and communication skills, lack of confidence and issues with attendance and punctuality. The pupil premium is intended to directly benefit the children who are eligible, helping to narrow the gap between them and their classmates. It’s important to know that a pupil does not need to have a school dinner, but the parents / carers should check to see if they are entitled.

It also includes pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years; children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months; and children where a parent serves in the armed forces.

We aim to spend this money wisely in order to ‘narrow the gap’ in attainment and progress for those children classed as Pupil Premium by ensuring that they are at least in line with the achievements of their ‘National Average’ peers, to provide enrichment activities or to provide support in overcoming any ‘barrier to learning’, be it social or emotional.

 

Last year, our KS2 results demonstrate we achieve this here at St. Cecilia’s for both attainment and progress, in Reading, Writing and Maths:
