Peterchurch Primary School

Pupil Premium

The Government introduced the Pupil Premium Grant in April 2011.  The funding is allocated to help schools deliver support to ensure eligible pupils reach their full potential both academically and socially.

Pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap in attainment between them and their peers.  Currently a school receives £1,345 for each primary and £955 for each secondary pupil who has been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years. A school may also receive up to £2,345 for each Looked After Child (LAC).

Pupil Premium Funding is delegated to schools based on the following:

  • Service Child Premium
  • Adopted from Care Premium
  • Looked After Premium
  • Children who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM)
  • Children who have been eligible for Free School Meals in any of the previous six years (Ever 6)


At Peterchurch Primary School our education focuses on the development of the whole child and integrates academic learning with artistic and outdoor activities. We recognise the unique contribution that each child brings to their learning and use targeted additional support strategies to support every child to be able to:

  • improve self-esteem;
  • have full access to our curriculum;
  • access extra-curricular provision;
  • improve their levels of attainment and progress;
  • where present, to close attainment gaps.

We are committed to ensuring that pupils in receipt of Pupil Premium (PP) funding are not stigmatised or isolated in any way. However, we do identify these pupils in our progress tracking system.  This enables us to monitor their progress and to intervene where appropriate.  This includes ensuring we support both their curriculum and extra-curricular activities.
