WELCOME

TO ST. THOMAS C.E. PRIMARY SCHOOL

Pupil Premium

The pupil premium provides funding for pupils:

  • who have been in receipt of free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last 6 years
  • who have been continuously looked after for the past six months
  • for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.

 

In school we have 108 pupils who are entitled to benefit from the additional funding.

Each entitled pupil receives £1320 per year

Pupils who are looked after receive £900 per year

 

In 2016-17 the school received £142,560 additional funds. A proportion of the Pupil Premium is committed to maintaining the provision for disadvantaged pupils that is currently in place.

 

Our Pupil Premium Plan this year will have two key objectives:

  • To improve outcomes for all pupil premium pupils in reading, writing and maths
  • To improve curriculum engagement and academic achievement

 

 

  • Key Objective 1: To improve outcomes for all pupil premium pupils in reading, writing and maths

Rationale: Education Endowment Foundation

  • ‘Evidence indicates that one to one tuition can be effective, on average accelerating learning by approximately five additional months’ progress.’
