How is the 'Pupil Premium' being used at St. Mary of the Angels?
Pupil Premium allocation.
'Pupil Premium' funding has been allocated to schools by the government to assist pupils who may be at risk of underachievement for various reasons of disadvantage. It is aimed to support them to achieve as well or better than other pupils in their class. This school is successful in raising attainment through use of Pupil Premium.
The latest Ofsted report published in July 2017 stated that;
“The pupil premium funding for disadvantaged pupils is being used effectively. Information on the current progress being made by this group of pupils shows that the difference between them and others nationally with similar starting points is diminishing.”
Evidence from 2017-18 shows that this progress of the PP group is improving further.
