How is the 'Pupil Premium Grant' 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 aims to support these children to achieve at least as well as other pupils in their class. This school is successful in raising attainment through use of Pupil Premium. We largely focus our Pupil Premium support on facilitating the delivery high quality teaching in the classroom.
In September 2019, Ofsted assessed our provision for Pupil Premium and said "All pupils, including the most vulnerable, make full use of the very wide variety of extra opportunities that staff provide.....leaders and teachers make sure that pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) and disadvantaged pupils have the help that they need to achieve their best."
