Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), and to children who have been looked after continuously for more than 6 months. Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. We will, however, be held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils from low income families.

From September 2012, schools are required to publish online information about how we have used or are planning to use the Premium. This will ensure that parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of pupils covered by the Premium and the extra support that they receive.

A statement to parents on how the Pupil Premium funding has been used to address the issue of ‘narrowing the gap’ will appear on our school website annually.

This letter provides information on eligibility and information on how to apply.

Academic Year – 2016 to 2017

At Sacred Heart School, the number of pupils eligible for Pupil Premium funding is lower that the National average at 10.5%. As a school, we make provision for these pupils based on their individual needs. We look at their ability, home situation and their individual areas for development or barriers to learning. From this analysis, we tailor the provision to the identified needs.

In 2016/7, we identified that pupils would require support or extension activities in the following areas: Reading, Mathematics, Writing and Social Skill development.

Where pupils entitled to PPG are below age related expectations the main barriers to learning are found to be complex. These involve one or more of the following: the parental capacity to support the child academically, child is identified as SEND  or the child’s social and emotional development requires support.
