Pupil Premium Strategy


The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and to close the gaps between them and their peers.

It is particularly aimed at pupils who may qualify for free school meals (FSM) because parents or carers are in receipt of one of the following:

  • Universal credit (provided you have a net income of £7400 or less)
  • Income support
  • Income-based job seekers’ allowance
  • Income related employment and support allowance
  • Support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The guaranteed element of state pension credit
  • Child tax credit, provided that you are not also entitled to working tax credit and have a gross annual income of £16,190 or less
  • Working tax credit run on- paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working tax credit

If you think you may be eligible, please fill out this form and hand it into the school office to be stamped or email the completed application form to the school office, for the attention of Mrs. Foley.

The pupil premium funding also includes:

  • pupils who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure - FSM6)
  • looked-after and previously looked-after children
  • Service premium funding to support the pastoral needs of children with parents in the armed forces.

Nationally pupil premium pupils underachieve compared to other (non-disadvantaged) pupils. The Government believes that the pupil premium grant, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current inequalities by ensuring that funding reaches the pupils who need it most.

Part A: Pupil premium strategy plan

Statement of intent

St Peter’s is an inclusive school and we value the diversity in our school community. We target the use of our Pupil Premium Grant funding to ensure that our disadvantaged pupils receive the highest quality of education to enable them to become successful and confident citizens, way beyond their primary school experience with us. We recognise that disadvantaged children can face a wide range of barriers, which may impact on their learning. We take the time to get to know all of our pupils individually and recognise that their challenges can be varied and there is no ‘one size fits all approach’.

Our key principles are:

  • We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all our pupils
  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups.
  • Our ultimate objectives are to:
  • Remove barriers to learning created by poverty, family circumstances and background
  • Narrow the attainment gap between disadvantaged pupils and their non-disadvantaged peers
  • Ensure all pupils are able to read fluently by the end of Key Stage One, ensuring they can access the full breadth of the curriculum.
  • Develop our pupil’s self confidence so they are articulate, resilient and ready for the challenges of Key Stage 3.

Achieving our objectives:

  • Implementing high quality teaching approaches and interventions which are research backed.
  • Correctly identifying pupils’ social, emotional and learning needs through use of assessment tools and providing for those needs through high quality interventions and professional involvement.
  • Supporting and consulting parents in their children’s experience of school life.


This details the key challenges to achievement that we have identified among our disadvantaged pupils.
