Pupil Premium and Sports Premium - 2021-22

Pupil Premium Strategy and Impact Statement

We have high aspirations for all the children in our school community and believe that all children should be given the opportunity to reach their full potential. We seek, as a school community, to provide personalised learning opportunities and targeted support to allow every child to flourish.

As we recognise that not all pupils who are academically or socially disadvantaged are registered for free school meals, we reserve the right to allocate Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil, or group of pupils, identified by the school as being at a significant disadvantage.

In order to meet the above requirements, the Governing Body of St Gerard's Catholic Primary & Nursery School will ensure that provision is made which secures the teaching and learning opportunities that meet the needs of all pupils.


Our priorities at St Gerard's Catholic Primary & Nursery School are:


  • To narrow the gap for those pupils not on track to achieve the expected standard at the end of KS1 and KS2.

  • To narrow the gap for those pupils in receipt of EYPP (Early Years Pupil Premium) 

  • To ensure early identification of additional needs and to promote early and effective intervention programmes.

  • To ensure that there is extra support to facilitate emotional and social development in addition to academic support.

  • To use academic and local research to make informed choices about the most suitable intervention programmes to use with our children to ensure we are promoting accelerated learning.


This provision will include:


  • Facilitating pupils’ access to education.

  • Facilitating pupils’ access to our curriculum.

  • Additional teaching and learning opportunities where deemed appropriate.

  • Alternative support and intervention.

  • Provision of extra-curricular learning.

  • Provision for more able pupils to ensure they are challenged and unlock all of their potential
