Pupil Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.

Pupils eligible for Pupil Premium funding currently receive at least £1455 in services and opportunities, which are in addition to the core offer of the school. This is to ensure that these children, who statistically are at risk of underachievement, are able to catch up.

At St Mary's our analysis shows that many of our pupils eligible for this funding, make better than expected progress, and work above this standard. When moving to secondary education, our pupils eligible for this funding, are as likely as other pupils to move on to local grammar schools or grammar streams in secondary schools.

The funding that we receive for Pupil Premium and Pupil Premium eligible pupils is used to pay for:

Reading Recovery

Writing Specialist Teacher for years 2 and 3

Writing Specialist Teacher for years 4,5 and 6
