Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011. It is an additional grant of money provided to schools by the government aimed at reducing the educational effects of disadvantage. In 2020-2021 it was worth £1345 per eligible child. There is an additional amount called ‘Pupil Premium Plus’, which is targeted at children who have been adopted or who are in the care of a ‘Special Guardian’. This is worth £2345 per pupil. There is a smaller amount for service children worth £300 per pupil.

In 2020-2021 St Barnabas received £52,455

The funding was used for the following provision:

  • Family Link Worker – to support individuals and small groups with their Social, Emotional and Mental Health and support families in a wide range of ways.
  • Subscribe to Specialist Behaviour Support – for small groups, classes and individuals.
  • Subscribe to Educational Welfare services – support for families and individuals to attend school.
  • Reading Assistants – 1:1 support for reading across the school.
  • Release time for teachers – to provide 1:1 support, pre-tutoring, catch up and coaching/mentoring.
  • Homework club – time, quiet space and IT equipment for pupils to complete homework supported by an adult.
  • Resources – including new reading books and equipment for the playpod.

In addition to the list above, we also aim to improve participation in a wide range of enrichment activities that we can offer both in and outside of school.

From September 2021, for eligible children, we will be offering the following discounts;

50% contribution to Year 6 Residential school camp

50% contribution to any paid for Educational school visits

We will be offering £50 of school uniform for September 2021 to be purchased from our school uniform providers Monkhouse and a free place at our breakfast club.

If you need any support with the above prior to September please contact the school office.
