Pupil Premium Grant

At St Mary’s CE Primary School we understand that the barriers and challenges faced by disadvantaged pupils are varied and complex. We support each child individually, ensuring that we meet their needs in order for them to thrive both socially and academically.


The Pupil Premium Grant is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings, and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. This also include pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure). Funding is also allocated to children in Service families.

From September 2012, we have been required to publish online information about how we have used the Premium. This will ensure that parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of pupils covered by the Premium and the extra support that they receive. We monitor and evaluate the impact of our Pupil Premium spend through robust monitoring procedures. We track the children’s academic progress through data analysis and meet with class teachers regularly to monitor the provision and outcomes for these children.

If you feel your child might be eligible for the Pupil Premium Grant, please look at the below letters of application. The process is quick and easy. Those eligible for the grant will access the following, in addition to Free School Meals (FSM):

  • Targeted one-to-one tuition with a teacher
  • Funding towards classroom & learning resources and activities specifically for your child
  • Support towards the cost of school uniform
  • Support towards the costs of school trips and after school clubs
