Pupil Premium

St Mary’s currently receives money for pupils who are entitled to free school meals. This amount is £900    per pupil. This money is intended to ensure progress of these pupils is in line with all other pupils. The money is used in a variety of ways depending on the needs of the pupil such as:

  • Paying for extracurricular activities
  • Educational Visits
  • Extra support for Literacy and Numeracy
  • Specialist equipment and resources.
  • Specialist teacher input
  • Counseling and play therapy

Pupil Premium

St Mary’s currently receives Pupil Premium funding which is allocated to children from families on a low income who are currently known to be eligible for free school meals and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. It is also used for children who have been on the FSM register but no longer qualify.

At St Mary’s, the Governing body and staff value and respect each child as an individual. We strive to ensure that provision is made which secures the teaching and offers learning opportunities that meets the needs of all of our pupils. They therefore reserve the right to allocate pupil premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils that are legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.
