Are you aware of Pupil Premium?

All schools receive a pot of money from the government for children on free school meals, this is called Pupil Premium funding.

Funding is not for individual children but for the school to decide how best to spend the money to help children achieve better. In our school, we spend most of the Pupil Premium money to improve Teaching and Learning so our children thrive. We also subsidise activities where we can. Did you know.....

  • children entitled to pupil premium pay 25% less for school trips
  • children entitled to pupil premium pay a pound less per child for breakfast club
  • children entitled to pupil premium pay a pound less per child for after school club
  • the school support the PFSA to run a regular second hand uniform club
  • school provide spare uniform and PE kits including trainers so that all children are wearing the correct uniform and sports kit.
  • school provide all stationery children need
  • school loan technological devices to children entitled to pupil premium who otherwise cannot access learning at home

Do you think you are entitled to free school meals? Please come and speak to either the office or the Windmill Team.

At St Peter's we use part of our pupil premium funding to support two dedicated teams:

The Windmill Team supports safeguarding, attendance, pastoral, mental-health support and family support.   

The Lighthouse Team  special needs and disabilities support.

Our main focus is a continuous focus on making our teaching and learning better. To find out more click below.
