Pupil Premium Statement

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current inequalities by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage pupils reaches the pupils who need it most.

The DfE has given schools the freedom to use the Pupil Premium as they see fit:

“It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.”

The Pupil Premium funding settlement received by St Augustine's Catholic Primary School is calculated based on the number of children on roll who:

  • are known to have been eligible for free school meals at any time within the last six years
  • are Looked After children
  • are the children of armed service personnel
  • are adopted from care (funding allocated from April 2014)
