Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools to narrow the attainment gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers. Funding is calculated based on the numbers of pupils eligible for free school meals.
At St Bernard’s, we spend our Premium on creating additional teaching and learning opportunities, and delivering alternative support and interventions where appropriate. We have also used funds to expand pupils’ access to books and extracurricular activities, including music tuition and after-school clubs, enriching the learning experience for all.
We regularly monitor the impact of our Pupil Premium to ensure our provision effectively responds to the needs of our pupils, supporting pupil progress and attainment.
