Pupil Premium

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which was introduced in April 2011, is the best way to address underlying inequalities between children who are disadvantaged by   specific   circumstances   and   their   peers, by   ensuring   that   funding   to   tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.


At  St. Wulstan’s & St. Edmund’s Catholic  Primary  School & Nursery,  we  believe  that  only  by  having  the  highest expectations  of  all  learners  can  the  highest  possible  standards  be  achieved.  Some pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds require additional support; therefore, we will use all the available resources to help them reach their full potential. 


The pupil premium grant (PPG) was created to provide funding for three key areas: 

  • Raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and closing the gap with their peers.
  • Providing funding for LAC and previously LAC (PLAC).
  • Supporting pupils with parents in the armed forces.


The Pupil Premium Grant per-pupil for 2019 to 2020 is as follows:
