Whats is Pupil Premium?

Introduced in 2011, 'Pupil Premium' is a sum of money given to schools each year by the Government to help support lower income families. To find out if your child is eligable then please contact Mrs Corrigan in the school office who will be able to answer your questions.

How do we use our Pupil Premium Money?

At St Vincent's we strive to meet the individual needs of each pupil. We recognise that some pupils need additional support to achieve their full potential, others need challenge and extension.

In addition, we tightly track the progress of our disadvantaged children. Based on data analysis and teacher feedback, where we feel a child's progress could be further enhanced by one to one, small group intervention or specialist support, we ensure this happens. Recently we have invested in resources and training to target the identified needs of our disadvantaged children. 

How is progress measured?

Teacher assessment,marking, validated by standardised tests and in-house monitoring of children’s work is used to allow senior leaders to track the progress of each child in school. Class teachers meet the Head Teacher, Key Stage Leaders and SENCo at the end of each term and discuss, within a pupil progress meeting, the progress of their disadvantaged (Pupil Premium) children.

Further information about how we spend our Pupil Premium money can be found in the documents below.
