Our Lady of Peace Infant and Nursery School

Our Lady of Peace Infant School 


Pupils entitled to Free School Meals (FSM) are eligible for this funding and the government has deployed a fixed amount of money to schools per pupil, based on the number eligible. There is also an allocation for children in care - looked after children (LAC) and children who have parents in the Armed Forces.

Here at Our Lady of Peace Catholic Infant and Nursery School, we aim to use the government’s pupil premium funding in a targeted and strategic way to ensure that eligible pupils succeed and achieve their targets, in a loving and supportive environment – in line with our Mission Statement.


  • We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils
  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed.
  • In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged
  • We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We reserve the right to allocate the pupil premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged
  • Pupil Premium Funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals. Each child will be placed on a Provision Map where their needs will be identified and provision put in place. This will be reviewed termly in order to monitor the impact of provision.
