Pupil Premium

At Christ Church C of E Primary School, we are committed to providing a rich educational experience for all pupils, giving them the opportunity to achieve. With the love of God and Christian values at the heart of our school we strive to develop each individual physically, creatively, socially and emotionally.

Pupil Premium is a grant allocated to schools to support socially disadvantaged pupils. Pupil premium is not allocated to individual students. It is not an individual entitlement.

In 2011-12 the Government launched its Pupil Premium funding. This money is sent to schools based on the numbers of pupils in the school who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM). From 2012-13, it has been expanded to include all children who have been eligible for FSM within the last 6 years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure). This money is allocated to initiatives to ensure pupils reach their full potential, both academically and socially.

Pupil Premium at Christ Church School

At Christ Church C of E Primary School, we are committed to ensuring our children achieve their full potential. We aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum, supported by outstanding teaching and robust analysis of attainment and progress.

We identify all pupils eligible for FSM as well as recent recipients as target Pupil Premium pupils to ensure we narrow the gaps. Any barriers to learning are quickly identified; monitored and targeted interventions are designed to meet individual needs. All children are encouraged to participate in a wide range of extra-curricular activities, which will further develop their learning, social skills and confidence.
