Pupil Premium Statement
Pupil premium is funding to improve education outcomes for disadvantaged pupils in schools in England. Evidence shows that disadvantaged children generally face additional challenges in reaching their potential at school and often do not perform as well as other pupils.
The government provides schools with additional pupil premium funding to support children from low income families who are or have been eligible for free school meals, children who have been in care continuously for more than 6 months and children with parents in the armed forces (or who have served in the armed forces in the past).
It is essential that all families apply for Free School meals irrelevant of the age of the child as if your application is successful, our school will receive additional funding to spend on the pupils. If you have not applied for Free School meals then please apply by following this link.
School leaders are best placed to assess their pupils’ needs and use the funding to improve attainment, drawing on evidence of effective practice. It is up to school leaders to decide how to spend the pupil premium.
At Holy Trinity Catholic Primary School, we use the Pupil Premium funding in the following areas of school:
To provide additional support for pupils during the school day.
To provide additional support for pupils outside of the school day through tutor groups.
To provide support for pupils with additional needs.
To provide mental health support for pupils.
To provide pupils with widening opportunities in the arts and sport.
To assist in supplementing costs for school trips or visitors.
It is the responsibility of the school to explain pupil premium expenditure in the form of an annual statement.
