At St Peter at Gowts Church of England Primary School, we support all our pupils. We do this by providing high quality classroom teaching, supplemented by interventions to support vulnerable learners, as and when required.
The School Leadership Team and Governing Body monitor the impact of all spending and interventions, including the Pupil Premium support and funding.
We endeavour to encourage parents and carers to apply for Free School Meals (FSM).
The Government decided that eligibility for the Pupil Premium would be extended to pupils who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last 6 years. The reason for this is that, as a group, children who have been eligible for FSM at any point in time have consistently lower educational attainment than those who have never been eligible for FSM.
The Pupil Premium funding is allocated to children from families who are currently eligible for FSM or have been eligible in the last 6 years. In 2014/15, the school received £1,300 per Pupil Premium child and in 2015/16, 2016/17 and 2017/18, the school received £1,320 per Pupil Premium child. A detailed report linked to how the funding has been allocated this year and last year can be found below.
