Pupil Premium

What is the pupil premium?

The Pupil Premium provides additional funding on top of the main funding a school receives. It is targeted at students from disadvantaged backgrounds to ensure they benefit from the same opportunities as pupils from less deprived families. Currently, the premium is worth £600 and goes to students who are currently on Free School Meals. Students in care, who have been looked after by local authorities for more than six months also continue to qualify for the Pupil Premium. For 2012-13, the Government has extended its reach to cover any child that has been registered for Free School Meals (FSM) in the past six years.

Why is there a pupil premium?

Students who have been eligible for Free School Meals at any point in their school career have consistently lower educational attainment than those who have never been eligible.

How will the impact of the spending of the Pupil Premium be measured?

To monitor progress on attainment, new measures will be included in the performance tables that will capture the achievement of students covered by the Pupil Premium. At St Christopher Primary, the usual cycle of data collection and the monitoring and tracking of the cohort’s attainment, will be used to inform student progress and enable the early identification of need, support and appropriate intervention.
