The school place Gospel values at core of school improvement, evidenced in the constant pursuit for high academic attainment whilst ensuring children experience a broad and balanced curriculum that equips them in the next steps of their learning.
There is a strong understanding and application of the school mission encouraging everyone to achieve highly, work as one diverse community, and reach out to those less fortunate.
What is Pupil Premium?
Pupil Premium is a grant allocated to schools for the purpose of raising the attainment of eligible pupils, in order to diminish the gap between these pupils and other pupils nationally.
Eligibility is on the basis of the number of pupils who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point over the last 6 years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’). It also provides funding for children who have been looked after for more than 6 months and the children of service personnel.
Pupil Premium breakdown of funding at St. Bernard’s RC Primary School
- 42.3% of pupils are receiving Ever 6
- 3 pupils are or have been looked after for more than 6 months
- We have no children from service personnel families
The evaluation of our Pupil Premium strategy is based upon how quickly the school can ‘diminish the gap’ between disadvantaged pupils and their peers. Targets are identified and evaluated annually and included in the School Improvement Plan.
The overall success criteria for our Pupil Premium Strategy are:
Diminishing the achievement gap between disadvantaged pupils and their non disadvantaged peers, nationally, locally and within school.
- Early intervention and support for disadvantaged pupils
- Intervention and support for pupils to make accelerated progress in order to ‘diminish the gap’
- An effective system for identifying, assessing and tracking the progress of pupils
- The vast majority of disadvantaged pupils will meet their annual end of year targets
- Effective home school communications impacts upon the success of interventions
- A positive school atmosphere in which the uniqueness of each individual is celebrated, as they develop into confident, resilient, independent learners
