PUPIL PREMIUM FUNDING
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 ensuring that funding to tackle the disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it the most.
The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’). Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than 6 months, and children of service children personnel.
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 eligible for Pupil Premium funding have a personalised plan in place that is developed by the class teacher, child and parents to ensure that they reach their full potential in school.
