Pupil Premium

Background
Pupil Premium funding is allocated for children from low-income families who were eligible for free school meals or have been looked after continuously for more than six months. From April 2012 the Pupil Premium was extended to include children who had been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years. A premium has also been introduced for children whose parents are currently serving in the Armed Forces

 

 Rationale
 The staff and governors of St Patrick’s are committed to providing an excellent education that helps all of our children to achieve highly both academically and in their personal development.

This will be achieved through first-rate teaching, an exciting curriculum and a broad range of extra-curricular activities and, above all, exceptional care of all staff to ensure that all pupils consistently reach well above average standards.

Provision
 Existing funding in addition to pupil premium funding ensures that the following provision is firmly in place:

  • High levels of staffing provide the capacity for targeted teaching, small group and 1:1 intervention to address misconceptions and needs identified through the schools monitoring policy and learning and achievement conversations
  • Funding transport for subsidised theatre and cinema visits, offsite learning experiences and outdoor education residential visits expand the horizons of our children, opening their eyes to the wonder of the arts, heritage, culture and the adventure of the natural world. These experiences are instrumental in raising attainment and aspirations for our children.
  • Provision of a family support worker promotes parents active encouragement and support for children’s learning which leads to improved attendance and improved levels of attainment.
  • To establish our partnership with our parents in education and make explicit the importance of language development and reading in the home, all parents receive a welcome pack of resources at the induction meeting to their share with their children and establish good learning habits.
  • Funded access to our Wrap Around Care, breakfast and after school activities, prepares pupils for learning and provides opportunity for homework support
