Pupil Premium Funding

Pupil Premium funding is allocated to schools to support the education of children who are/ have been  eligible for free school meals or are looked after, to provide equal opportunities and to narrow the attainment gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers.


Funding received 2014 – 2015               £16,900

Funding received 2015 - 2016               £26,400

Funding received 2016 - 2017               £26,400

At St Paul’s we use our Pupil Premium to support pupils and their learning through:


  • Additional teacher/teaching assistant time to provide targeted interventions e.g. Read Write Inc, Monster Maths, Springboard and support learning
  • Financial support to ensure pupils have equal access to educational opportunities e.g. subsidy of visits
  • Emotional support to foster pupil wellbeing and increase self esteem
  • Encouragement to develop wider interests/skills


In 2014 10 children received pupil premium and a positive impact on the progress made by these children was evident. There were no children in Yr 6 who received pupil premium so impact on value added was not available.

In 2015 -2016 20 children receive pupil premium.
