The Pupil Premium is additional funding allocated to schools to enable them to meet the challenge of ensuring that looked after children, children eligible for free school meals and children of Service Personnel do not underachieve.
At St. Patrick's we use the funding provided, and supplement this from the school's delegated budget, to provide the best possible opportunities for all the children in our care. The funding is not tied to individual children but each school is responsible for deciding how best the funding can be used. The school staff are committed to "Narrowing the Gap" for vulnerable pupils and the Pupil Premium Grant forms a vital part of that process.
All pupils are assessed/tracked so that provision matches their needs. Pupil Premium is used to provide/enhance this provision.
