Pupil Premium 2015/16

We believe St. Stephen's is an inspiring and exciting place where children, parents, staff, governors and our community work together to provide the opportunities for all pupils to achieve their potential, explore and develop the gift that they are and grow alongside others as children of God.

The Strategic Intervention Board and all members of staff accept responsibility for vulnerable pupils and are committed to meeting their pastoral, social and academic needs within a caring Catholic environment.  This is an essential, integral part of the spiritual development of the whole school community.

 

At St. Stephen’s School, we have high aspirations for all children and we believe that everyone is entitled to the necessary support and provisions in order to enable them to reach these aspirations.

The Government Pupil Premium initiative is allocated to children from:

  • low-income families who are known to be eligible for Free school meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings
  • those looked after for 1 day or more or adopted from care
  • those whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces
  • those who left care under a special guardianship order, residence order or a child arrangement order.

From 2012 this has also included pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure).

 

This extra funding is aimed at raising the attainment of eligible children and helping to closing the gap between these children’s attainment and progress and the attainment and progress of their peers.

In order to meet the above requirements, the Strategic Intervention Board of St Stephen's Catholic Primary School will ensure that provision is made which secures teaching and learning opportunities that meet the needs of all vulnerable pupils. We believe early identification of specific needs, providing the necessary provisions and effective monitoring will narrow the gaps and ensure they are reaching their potential.

 

If any further support is needed, please feel free to contact Mrs C. Ford (Pupil Premium co-ordinator).
