Pupil Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.

Pupil Premium Statement

 

 

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address current inequalities by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage pupils reaches the pupils who need it most.

The DfE has given schools the freedom to use the Pupil Premium as they see fit:

“It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.”

The Pupil Premium funding settlement received by Sacred Heart R.C  Primary School is calculated based on the number of children on roll who:

 

•          are known to have been eligible for free school meals at any time within the last six years (£1320)

 

•          are Looked After children (LAC) or who are Looked After for one day or more, or those who are adopted from care, or

           who leave care on a special guardianship/residence order (CLA) (£1900)

 

•          are the children of armed service personnel (£300)

 

 

The amount of Pupil Premium funding received by Sacred Heart School is listed below:

 

Principles

 

At Sacred Heart School we aim to ensure that children experience quality first teaching, meeting the needs of each individual child. We aim to ensure that every child reaches or exceeds age-related expectations in reading, writing and mathematics. In addition, no child is disadvantaged due to inability to pay for school trips, residential visits, music tuition or other extra-curricular activities.

We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all our pupils. We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed. In making provision for disadvantaged Pupil Premium Funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be disadvantaged. We also recognise that not all pupils who are disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We reserve the right to allocate the disadvantaged. Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals. Limited funding and resources means that not all children receiving free school meals will be in receipt of pupil premium interventions at one time.
