PUPIL PREMIUM STATEMENT

'Together we step out in faith, weathering the storms that may challenge us, confident that Christ is with us and united as a holy family.'

It is within this context that our Pupil Premium statement is written. We recognise that the Pupil Premium grant is a key resource in ensuring that every child irrespective of background or ability realises their full potential – spiritually, academically, socially, morally and culturally, so that they can ‘increase in wisdom and grace’.

The Pupil Premium Grant is paid to schools for pupils who are recorded as being eligible for Free School Meals in the last 6 years, who are Looked After, under Special Guardianship or who have a parent serving in the Armed Forces.
