Pupil Premium is funding given to schools to help to support disadvantaged students, and to help to close the gap in attainment between these students and their peers. It is allocated to schools for every student who has been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years, and for Children Looked After and children of Service Personnel. The Government believes that the PPG is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between these children and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.
At Our Lady of Peace Catholic Primary & Nursery School , we strongly believe that high quality first teaching is paramount to the achievement of all pupils.
Our aim is to ensure that disadvantaged pupils are provided with every opportunity to achieve as well as their peers and to reach age related expectations.
Pupil Premium Eligibility
All pupils in Reception, years 1 and 2 now receive a free school lunch, however it is very important that those children eligible for Pupil Premium funding claim this additional support by letting the school office know that the family receive support. Please contact the school office for further information and advice.
