Pupil Premium

If your child is registered for ‘Free School Meals’, St Mary’s will receive additional funding known as ‘Pupil Premium’. We use this additional funding to improve the educational provision and resources at school.

What is Pupil Premium Funding?

Pupil Premium funding is provided by the government to help pupils reach their full potential, regardless of their background or financial situation.

 The Government provides funding for pupils who:

  • are presently registered for free school meals
  • have been registered for free school meals at any point in the past 6 years
  • are, or have previously been in care
  • have parents in the armed forces

St Mary’s receives an additional £1,320 for each eligible pupil. This additional funding makes a real difference to the quality of education we offer.


How is Pupil Premium used?

At St. Mary’s Catholic Primary School, if your child receives the Pupil Premium, we can use this to help you with the cost of extra teaching support for your child’s learning.

For example, we have previously used Pupil Premium funding to:

  • improve educational provision and resources
  • provide additional, targeted, academic intervention programmes
  • offer targeted self-esteem building programmes
  • provide counselling services
  • offer subsidies for year 4 and year 6 residential visits
  • music tuition
  • extra-curricular clubs
