Pupil Premium funding at St Augustine's.
Pupil Premium funding is the best way in school to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers. By directing funding, to tackle these inequalities and disadvantage, towards the pupils who need it the most, we ensure pupils have opportunity to excel in all areas of the curriculum.
At St. Augustine’s we pride ourselves on the individual curriculum we are able to offer all of our children, due to the additional Pupil Premium funding. Children, who are eligible for Pupil Premium funding, have a personalised plan in place, which is developed by the class teacher, child and parents to ensure that they reach their full potential in school.
