Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Strategy 2016-2017 (review of 2015-2016)

What is Pupil Premium?

Pupil premium is money given to the school by the Government. The amount of money a school receives is based upon the amount of children on Free School Meals (FSM), Looked After Children and children of families in the Armed Forces. The money has to be used to support the development of these children in ways in which the school feels is most beneficial.               

How is the funding used?

St Cuthbert's  Catholic Primary School seeks to ensure the effectiveness of its use of the Pupil Premium. We recognise that barriers to achievement take a variety of forms and look for individual ways to support each child to achieve their very best. We do this by offering our children a wide range of opportunities and ensuring that these are accessible for everyone. We work with our families and colleagues to make sure everyone has high aspirations for all pupils.
