Pupil Premium


At St Laurence CE Primary School, we believe that by having the highest expectations of all learners, the highest possible standards will 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 funding was created to provide support for three key areas:


  • Raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and closing the gap with their peers.

  • Supporting children and young people with parents in the armed forces.

  • Providing funding for looked-after children (LAC).


You could be eligible if you are in receipt of:

  • Universal Credit with an annual net earned income of no more than £7,400
  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The guarantee element of Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (with no Working Tax Credit) with an annual income of no more than £16,190)
  • Working Tax Credit run-on (paid for four weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit)

How do we use the funding at St Laurence?


  • Pre- and post-teaching: teachers and teaching assistants hold boosting sessions with pupil premium children. They also pre-teach upcoming topics, this provides a confidence boost for children as they have already been given a solid grounding in areas before they encounter them during lessons.
  • We hold nurture sessions for pupil premium children in both KS1 and KS2. 
  • We offer a free breakfast for every pupil premium child at school. 
  • We hold extra SATs boosting session for year 6 disadvantaged children - 'SATs Social'. This was a successful initiative started in 2018/19, which we continued this year. 
  • We provide extra PE lessons each week for our disadvantaged children. 
  • Our disadvantaged children benefit from a mentor relationship within school. All pupil premium children are assigned a member of staff as a trusted adult, that they can speak to, in addition to their class teacher. 
  • This year, we are starting 'Pupil Conferences'. This is an initiative where disadvantaged children are given the opportunity to speak to a member of staff about any worries, successes or problems they may be having.
  • Through a broad and balanced curriculum, plan opportunities designed to enhance the cultural capital of our disadvantaged children.
