The 2016/2017 funding allocation includes pupils eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last six years and is known as the “Ever 6 FSM measure.”

Schools are able to use the Pupil Premium flexibly in order to narrow the attainment and achievement gap between these groups of socially disadvantaged children and the population as a whole.  To ensure accountability, there is a requirement to publish details of how the funding is being used.

At St. Charles’ Catholic Primary School :

  • We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils.
  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of social disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed.
