Pupil Premium, (funding in addition to main school funding) is designed to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and their peers. The funding helps to tackle those inequalities of the pupils who need it the most.
The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to St Bede’s to work with pupils who have either been registered for free school meals at any point within the last six years, children who have been on Local Authority looked after children register (and have been registered continuously for more than six months), and children of service personnel.
In 2021-2022, St Bede’s have received £200,550 in our Pupil Premium funding allocation this year and £30,595 in Recovery Premium funding to support as a result of the pandemic.
Please refer to the Pupil Premium Strategy 2021-2024 for further information.
