Schools are allocated additional funds known as ‘Pupil Premium‘ to provide additional support or resources for children from low-income families who are eligible for free school meals or who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years. Pupil Premium is also available for children whose parents are currently serving in the Armed Forces and children who have left local authority care through adoption, a special guardianship order or child arrangements order. Further information can be found on the DfE website: Policy paper on Pupil premium – updated 30 January 2020.
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.

Pupil Premium Funding and Impact 2019-20
The Government provides primary schools with additional sport funding. This funding is 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.
