At St Gregory's we use the extra funding to provide pupils with fair and equal opportunities so that they achieve well in all areas of the school.  The pupil premium is intended to directly benefit the children who are eligible, helping to narrow the gap between them and their classmates.


At St Gregory's we are passionate about the educational and personal development of our children.  Pupil Premium funds are used to help the pupils in a lots of ways including academic and non-academic areas.  A financial plan lists the different ways in which funds are used in school. This is used to help with attendance, educational clubs and trips, pupil wellbeing, attainment and progress of our pupils.

  • Employing extra teaching assistants to work with classes.
  • Running catch-up sessions before or after school, for example for children who need extra help with maths or literacy.
  • Running a school breakfast club to improve attendance.
  • Providing extra tuition for able children.
  • Providing music lessons for children whose families would be unable to pay for them.
  • Funding educational trips and visits.
  • Paying for additional help such as speech and language therapy or family therapy
  • Investing in resources that boost children’s learning, such as laptops or tablets.
