What is the Pupil Premium?
Pupil premium is funding to improve education outcomes for disadvantaged pupils in schools . Evidence shows that disadvantaged children can face additional challenges in reaching their potential at school and may perform as well as other pupils.
What is the Pupil Premium for?
The Government believes that this additional funding for schools will provide more equal opportunities for pupils from low income backgrounds compared with their friends who live in families with higher incomes. The main aim will be to raise attainment for pupils from low income families.
What have we used this additional money for?
At SS John & Monica Catholic Primary School we have always ensured that all pupils, regardless of background, have access to every possible educational initiative and opportunity. Pupils at SS John & Monica Catholic Primary School achieve in an environment of success for all.
Schools are allowed to spend the Pupil Premium money in any way they see fit so long as it raises attainment in underperforming pupils from low income families. In this academic year we will continue to provide a range of opportunities including booster classes, out of hours learning sessions, creative arts experiences, residential visits, etc.
