Pupil Premium

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium funding, 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 children who are not eligible for FSM by ensuring that the funding to tackle this disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it.

At St. Mary's we recognise our Pupil Premium children may have barriers to learning which inhibit their ability to access all areas of the curriculum. These include, pupils lacking in confidence, lack of progress due to poor attendance, pupils unable to access enrichment opportunities, pupils in need of emotional support, pupils with speech and language difficulties.
