Pupil Premium

No child left behind...

The Pupil Premium is additional funding provided by the UK government to publicly funded schools in England to help disadvantaged pupils improve their educational attainment and close the achievement gap between them and their peers.  The funding is based on the number of pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the past six years (known as 'Ever 6 FSM'), children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months and children of service personnel.


Primary schools across the country use the Pupil Premium funding to improve outcomes for these disadvantaged pupils.  Examples of how the funding can be used include hiring additional staff to provide one-to-one or small group support, investing in training for teachers and support staff and providing extra-curricular activities and resources to enhance pupils' learning experiences.


At St Veronica's, we use our Pupil Premium funding to support our disadvantaged children in a number of ways.  We offer targeted interventions and additional support in core subjects such as English and maths, as well as providing additional pastoral support and guidance to help our children overcome any barriers they may face.  We also provide additional resources and opportunities for enrichment, including extracurricular activities such as music and sports clubs and educational visits and trips.


By using the Pupil Premium funding effectively, we aim to ensure that all our children have the same opportunities to succeed and reach their full potential, regardless of their background or circumstances.
