Pupil Premium


The Pupil Premium is a specific grant based on:

  • Children registered eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) or at any point over the last 6 years (Ever 6)
  • Looked after children (LAC)
  • Children of parents currently serving in the armed forces.

The pupil premium is designed to narrow the potential academic gap and address the emotional and social well-being of these pupils. It is additional to main school funding and it will be used by this school to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible by ensuring that funding reaches the pupils who need it most.


What is School Sports Premium?
The government is providing funding o to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools.  This funding – provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – will be allocated to primary school head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE within their schools.  

What is the purpose of this funding?
Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.  At St Michael's we recognise that P.E plays an integral part in the well-being of all of our children.  We aim to incorporate physical education across our curriculum often linking it to our class themes where possible.  We offer wide and varied choice of extra-curricular activities run by qualified and experienced external agencies.  As we understand that leading a healthy and active lifestyle can have a positive impact on the concentration, learning and attitude of all children.

During the school's last OfSTED inspection in March 2018 The Inspector made the following comments:

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. You have improved the effectiveness of the school through a period of change. At the same time, you have ensured that you have retained the charm and appeal that makes St Michael’s a popular school with parents, carers and pupils alike.

Pupils make good progress from their starting points and are well prepared for the next stage of their education. This is because you ensure that your pupils get the best-quality teaching. 

Parents I spoke to were very positive about the school. They value the fact  you know their children so well as individuals and that you are always available for a quick chat. Parents really like the small, family feel of the school and know that their children are completely safe in your care. This was confirmed in the very positive response to the online questionnaire, Parent View. Indeed, many parents choose to travel to St Michael’s from further afield because of the care and guidance you offer to your pupils.
