Pupil Premium 2016-17

Pupil Premium for 2016/2017

St Mary Cray Primary receives a ‘Pupil Premium Grant’ from the Government for each child that is eligible for free school meals (‘FSM’), or has been eligible at any time in the last six years. We are pleased to use the Pupil Premium Grant to strengthen our provision to impact on these children to ensure that they are not disadvantaged. Obtaining all of the grant that we are entitled to on account of our children being, or having been, eligible for FSM is very important to us and if you think your child is eligible for FSM, please contact the school to discuss this in complete confidence. If a child is with the school for the duration of their primary education this funding can equate to nearly ten thousand pounds, which would be spent to impact on their education.

Our Pupil Premium Policy gives further details of this provision. In 2015 – 2016 children for Pupil Premium achieved well at St Mary Cray Primary Academy.
