Pupil Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.


Holy Cross Catholic Primary School Pupil Premium Expenditure


The pupil premium is an allocation of funding provided to schools to support children who may be vulnerable to underachievement. The amount received is dependent on the number of children who are known to be eligible for free school meals or have been eligible for free school meals in the last 6 years.  The funding also includes looked after children and those with a parent in the armed forces. All schools are required to report on the amount of funding and how this is being used.


Pupil Premium at Holy Cross Catholic Primary:


  • We organise teaching and learning at Holy Cross Catholic Primary in order to meet the needs of all children in the best way.
  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for children who belong to vulnerable groups and that socially disadvantaged children have their needs adequately assessed and met.
  • We recognise that not all children who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged and we also recognise that not all children that are disadvantaged have free school meals. We support any child the school has identified as being socially disadvantaged.
  • Not all children receiving free school meals will receive pupil premium interventions at any one time.
