Pupil Premium

St Mary's Pupil Premium Grant for 2016/2017 is £7900

Out of ALL of the schools in Lincolnshire (356 schools) our school is the 4th lowest for monies received to support children through Pupil Premium (PP) funding. Funding is given for those children who are or have been in receipt of of Free School Meals (FSM) (not including Universal Free School Meals for EYFS and KS1 pupils). If you think you might be eligible for FSM or PP funding, please speak to the school office; someone will advise you how we process applications.

A summary of the main barriers to educational achievement faced by eligible pupils at the school:

  • 75% of the Pupil Premium are EAL, so this can have an impact on their learning

    How you’ll spend the pupil premium to address those barriers and the reasons for that approach:

  • We have brought IPads to help with the reading progress, having Audio books installed;
  • Have have had specialist teacher brought in to school to give input;
  • Using additional TA support for those children that need extra support;
  • Write action plans and have parents in for discussions on a termly basis.

    How you’ll measure the impact of the pupil premium:

  • Having pupil progress meetings, showing on data, discussions with class teachers, having Pupil Premium meetings termly (6 weeks) three times a year.

We intend to continue  using our funding in the same way this year. Our Home School Liaison Officer (HSLO) is partially paid for through this. The HSLO works with PP children to support their learning. We will continue to fund additional TA support for those children that need extra support and have a specialist teacher brought in to school to give input and asses the needs of children. We will support children by offering breakfast club places and funding school trips as well as supporting where needed with children’s uniform and other school essentials.
