Pupil Premium

The government introduced the Pupil Premium Grant in April 2011. This represents extra funding allocated to schools as a way of addressing inequalities between children who are, (or have been), eligible for free school meals (FSM) and other pupils. The Pupil Premium is thus a means to tackle disadvantage, but schools can decide how best to use these funds to support children.

“It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.” Department for Education website

Pupil Premium provision at the Rosary Catholic Primary School

At the Rosary School we try to ensure all pupils receive the support they need to achieve their full potential. We aim to provide an excellent education through high quality teaching. This is supplemented by targeted interventions for pupils who might otherwise not make a good level of progress. These children are identified by our tracking of pupil achievement at 3 points in the school year. We are committed to enabling all children to achieve their potential, regardless of their gender, ethnic origin or family income or circumstances.

At the Rosary School, Pupil Premium may be used to provide the following:

  • Targeted intervention for individuals or small groups in reading, writing, phonics or numeracy.

  • Staff Training to enhance learning

  • Enrichment of the curriculum- visiting theatre groups or off site visits.

  • Extra-curricular activities to build self-esteem- sporting opportunities

  • Music tuition for pupils who otherwise might not have the opportunity to play a musical instrument

The Senior Leadership Team and Governors monitor the impact of all spending, including Pupil Premium. At the end of the academic year, we review how effective the above measures have been in enabling pupils to fulfill their potential.

If you have any questions, or would like to know more about Pupil Premium funding, please speak to the Headteacher. If you think your child may be eligible for Free School Meals, (even if s/he is entitled to Universal Free Infant School Meals), please ask at the school office for more information and a claim form.

Achievement for All

In 2015-16 we started using some of our Pupil Premium Funding to introduce the Achievement for All Programme. You can read the AfA campaign manifesto here.


In May 2017 we were awarded the Achievement for All Quality Mark. This means we have been officially recognised as a school that enables every child to be the best they can be regardless of background, challenge or need.
