What is Pupil Premium Funding?
All schools receive a payment, or Pupil Premium, for each child who is currently registered for free school meals or have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years, those who have a parent in the armed forces and those who have been in continuous care for six months or more. We update our records annually to make sure we have an accurate account of the school population. However, if your circumstances change please inform the school office.
If you are in receipt of any of the following, your child is eligible for free school meals:
If you are unsure of whether or not you are entitled to free school meals, the school can check for you using the confidential Eligibility Checking Service. If you would like us to check for you please provide the school with your National Insurance number and Date of Birth.
In line with our vision and values, St Mary's seeks to ensure the effectiveness of its use of the Pupil Premium. The below documents detail where the funding is spent and how it impacts Pupil Premium children.
The Governing Body reviewed the 2022/23 Pupil Premium strategy at the Full Governing Body meeting on 6th December 2022.
