Pupil Premium


 St Francis Catholic Primary School

Pupil Premium Expenditure Plan for 2017-18


The pupil premium grant (PPG) provides funding for two areas:

·        Raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities to reach their potential

·        Supporting children and young people with parents in the regular armed forces



The pupil premium for 2017 to 2018 included pupils from Reception to Year 6 who were recorded in the January 2017 school census as known to have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) in any of the previous 6 years (i.e. since May 2010, known as Ever 6), as well as those first known to be eligible at January 2017.

The allocation for these children was £1320 per child and £1,900 for Looked-after Children (LAC) and those who had ceased to be looked after (post-LAC).  

The allocation for 2017-18 was £139,920.00

This allocation derived from 106 eligible pupils.

The grant may be spent for the educational benefit of pupils registered at the school; on community facilities, e.g. services whose provision furthers any charitable purpose for the benefit of pupils at the school or their families, or people who live or work in the locality in which the school is situated.



 Objectives for 2017-18

·        To ensure high attainment of disadvantaged pupils in Reading

·        To ensure that disadvantaged pupils attain the expected standard or exceed in Reading across Key Stages 1 and 2

·        To provide opportunities that disadvantaged pupils and pupils of families with no recourse to public funds would otherwise not have access, e.g. music, art, drama, sport
