The aim of the Pupil Premium Grant is to raise achievement among disadvantaged pupils. The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from:
- low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (plus pupils who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever6 FSM measure).
- pupils who are looked after or in care.
- pupils whose parents are in the armed services.
It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium Grant is spent. However, measures will be included in the performance tables that will capture the achievement of those deprived pupils covered by the Pupil Premium Grant. The Government also require schools to publish online details of how they have used the premium.
In order to meet the above requirements, St. Ignatius Catholic Primary School will ensure that provision is made which secures the teaching and learning opportunities that meet the needs of all pupils.
We will publish the current pupil premium grant allocation statement when it has been approved by the Academy Council
