Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and in 2012–13 individual schools were allocated funding for children from low-income families who were eligible for free school meals, looked after children and those from families with parents in the Armed Forces.

We encourage all parents and carers to ensure that the office staff know whether their child is entitled to FSM, is a “Looked After” Child or has a parent who is a member of the armed services. We treat all enquiries in the strictest confidence.

As a school, St Paul’s CE Primary has prioritised the use of the pupil premium funding to address the following issues:

  • To reduce the attainment gap between the FSM pupils and non FSM pupils.
  • To address the inequalities between children eligible for FSM and their peers.
  • To ensure the children have “readiness to learn” and that any barriers from home are addressed.

You can view or download our Pupil  Premium allocation and find out how this has been used at our school.
