The government provides Pupil Premium funding, which is in addition to main school funding, to support eligible pupils. The funding is used to provide a wide range of resources.
At St Mellion C of E School we use our pupil premium funding primarily to narrow the gap for disadvantaged pupils and support them in making better than expected progress in comparison to their peers. The majority of our pupil premium allocation is spent on teaching – providing small group teaching in addition to the class teacher and in class support. Additionally, funding may be provided to support pupil premium funded pupils with opportunities such as residential visits, trips and music lessons.
Please contact the office if you think your family may be eligible for pupil premium funding.
Information concerning our pupil premium personal budget, allocated to all pupils who are eligible for pupil premium funding, is available here.
