Pupil Premium Funding

Pupil Premium funding is allocated to schools to support the education of children who have been eligible for free school meals or are looked after, to provide equal opportunities and to narrow the attainment gap between disadvantaged  pupils and their peers.

At St. Wilfrid’s we use our Pupil Premium Funding to support pupils and their learning through:

  • Additional teacher/teaching assistant time to provide targeted intervention and support learning
  • Financial support to ensure pupils have equal access to educational opportunities
  • Emotional support to foster pupil wellbeing and increase self esteem
  • Encouragement to develop wider interests/skills

In 2014 KS2 results showed that 100% of children in receipt of Pupil Premium made expected progress in Reading, Writing and Maths, which was above national average.
