Pupil Premium Allocation

Pupil Premium Policy 2017/2018

The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is additional funding from the government given to schools to specifically support pupils from disadvantage and deprived backgrounds. The grant allows schools to ensure those children benefit from the same opportunities as children from less deprived families.
St Mary’s CE Primary School received £286,600 for its Pupil Premium allocation in 2017/18.

Our objectives for the Pupil Premium Grant spending 2017/18:

    • to make at least expected attainment and progress and to diminish the difference in age related attainment in core subjects between disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged children
    • to raise literacy and numeracy levels and progress and develop pupils into confident and motivated readers
    • to continue to provide opportunities to a wide variety of quality extra-curricula experiences, school visits, before and after school childcare etc, which enable PPG children to improve their vocabulary and communication skills and experience new activities and go to locations they may not otherwise have access to
    • to provide social and emotional support through interventions, nurture groups and access to a professional counselling service in house
    • to provide personalised learning through 1:1 tuition and mentoring, small group interventions, additional teacher and teaching assistant support, holiday and before/after school booster groups
