Purpose and Funding

The Pupil Premium is additional funding which is located to schools on the basis of the number of pupils who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point over the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’).  The pupil premium is aimed to addressing the current underlying inequalities which exist between children from disadvantaged backgrounds and their more affluent peers. The Pupil Premium also provides funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months and for children of service personnel.

The DFE has given us the freedom to use Pupil Premium as we see it fit, based upon our knowledge of our students’ needs. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. However we are accountable for the use of this additional funding.

St Peter's School Ethos

At St Peter's School we fully support the thinking behind the Pupil Premium and believe that the best way for disadvantaged pupils to catch up with their peers is through our key principles: Achievement for all students, to continue to set high expectations, a strong ethos of achievement, high quality teaching, high quality interventions and a culture and ethos where learning flourishes and every student matters.  When a positive climate for learning is created along with targeted support, then the progress rates for Pupil Premium students accelerates as well as those students who are not PP but identified as in need of support to accelerate their learning.

Our aim is that the Pupil Premium Funding is used to ensure that all students have EQUAL opportunity to reach their full potential, achieve well and develop resilience. We aim to develop every student holistically (socially, culturally, psychologically) to establish a community that is just and fair for all.
