From 2011 schools were allocated additional funds known as ‘Pupil Premium‘ to provide additional support or resources for children from low-income families who were eligible for free school meals or who had been looked after continuously for more than six months.
From April 2012 the Pupil Premium was extended to include children who had been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years. A premium has also been introduced for children whose parents are currently serving in the Armed Forces, children who are looked after or children who have been adopted.
We believe that all pupils should be given the opportunity to reach their full potential through support, experience and the tools necessary to support their learning, their independence and their achievement. To this effect we at St Mary Magdalen’s R.C. School will direct pupil premium funding towards resources, activities, staffing etc. to support the above rationale.
At the beginning of each financial year a Pupil Premium spend plan is created detailing how the school intends to spend the premium during the financial year ahead. At the close of each financial year, an evaluation of the success of the plan is produced.

The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15 to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding.
This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools. To this effect we at St Mary Magdalen’s R.C. School will direct sport premium funding towards resources, activities, staffing etc. to support the above rationale.
