Pupil Premium Review 2015-2016
At St Michael’s we are always committed to raising the attainment of all pupils including our disadvantaged pupils. Our Pupil Premium funding is based on pupils who are known to be eligible for Free school meals (FSM) in any of the previous 6 years. It is therefore essential that we identify families who may be eligible as children benefit from £1320 per year during their primary years. Pupil Premium funding is additional funding given to schools to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.
We analyse the performance of different groups of children carefully and feel that it is important to ensure that our disadvantaged children have the same access to resources and opportunities as other children. It is for this reason that the funding we receive is used to give our children eligible for pupil premium the same opportunities. Please see our report for 2015-2016.
