The Pupil Premium Grant was introduced in 2011 and is allocated for pupils on roll that are known to have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any time in the last six years. It is also allocated for children who are or have been looked after under local authority care for more than one day and for children from service families who receive a child pension from the Ministry of Defence. Pupil Premium funding is allocated to support the raising of attainment for the most vulnerable pupils.
The priority for St Wilfrid’s Pupil Premium Strategy is to help create successful, independent, curious learners who are sensitive to opportunity and the possibilities of life. We aim to remove any barriers to learning for our students and ensure every student has the opportunity to maximise their potential.
At St Wilfrid’s the pupil premium funding is used to:
- Help close the attainment gap between disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged pupils
- Raise the self-esteem and aspirations of students entitled to Pupil Premium through pastoral support and extra-curricular activities.
Intervention for each student is considered on an individual needs based process. It is possible that one student may benefit from several interventions.
As a result of the use of the Pupil Premium funding we expect to see:
- Improved levels of progress and attainment
- Closing of attainment gaps
- Improved access to the curriculum
- Improved access to pastoral support
- Improved access to extra-curricular activities
- Improvements in attendance
- Improvements in behaviour and attitude to learning
