Welcome to St. Peter's CE Primary, Heswall! We are an Ofsted-rated GOOD school (2024) and a GOOD in all areas (2023) SIAMS-rated school!

Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is funding provided to schools which is additional to main school funding. It is allocated according to the number of pupils on-roll who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) within the past 6 years, a smaller amount allocated according to the number of children of service families, and an allocation for each pupil who has been ‘Looked After’ (in care) for 6 months or more. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their care. However, schools are to be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families. The expenditure of the Pupil Premium Grant is strictly monitored at St. Peter’s CE Primary School in line with the grant conditions.
St. Peter’s is committed to utilising the Pupil Premium Grant to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils, however it is expected that the outcomes of the grant expenditure will likely improve attainment for all pupils. The school evaluates the impact of the strategy on an on-going basis and pupils’ progress is tracked throughout the year. Termly summative assessments are used to inform teachers and senior leaders as to the rate of progress the child is making and where interventions are working or need to be amended. Evaluations focus on pupils’ attainment, progress and self-confidence following intervention support. A review measuring the impact of the Pupil Premium Grant will take place at the end of the academic year and will be published as a report on the school website.
At St. Peter’s there is a low number of disadvantaged children in each year group, which means there are often no significant trends in data. However, we track each individual child carefully, but these cannot always be reported due to low numbers.
