Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

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 to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’). At St Mary's CE Primary School we have enriched the provision for all of our pupils.

All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received, how this is being used, and the impact of any work done.

The pupil premium allocation for St Mary's CE Primary School for 2016-17 was £192,280. Please see the link below to view how the money was spent and the impact it has made for these pupils.
