The Government believes that Pupil Premium is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle the disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it the most.
The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’). Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than 6 months, and children of service children personnel.
Data for individual children is monitored and annual reports are produced.
If you would like any further information on how St. Teresa’s utilises its pupil premium money then please contact the school office.
Families whose children are in receipt of pupil premium are welcome to ask the school for support with school trips and events.
