Pupil Premium Funding

The pupil premium is additional funding to raise the attainment of eligible pupils of all abilities.

St Peter’s parental feedback about Pupil Premium:

“Both my children have received Pupil Premium funding for several years. Their experience at St Peter’s has definitely been improved as a result.  The free school meals obviously save the family money but, more importantly, the children have been able to join in with school trips and clubs that would have been very difficult for us otherwise, and to have music lessons that simply wouldn’t have been an option”

Year 5 parent

“Overnight stays at Escot and the big Year 6 trip to London were sizeable costs that we were especially glad to have help with.  All these extra activities were so important for shaping my children’s confidence and skills, and the payments were always arranged without fuss and without anyone else needing to know.”

Year 5 parent

“The services the school were able to offer were enhanced by the funding when they both had emotional issues.  They were given support through the emotional well-being program and learned how to cope. It’s a win-win.”

Year 5 parent

“My child has had the opportunity to have weekly peripatetic guitar lessons since the end of Year 2, which I would not have been able to afford otherwise,  He is loving it. He has had extra help in his learning, including Mathematics, and he is now happier with his learning and much more confident. He has the cost of so many school trips paid – including @Bristol – he talked about this experience for days afterwards.  Finally, he has had a free Pupil Premium place on an Exeter University Enrichment ‘Astronomy’ day course – he is really proud of his certificate – we had to take a picture of it and send it to the whole family.”

Year 3 Parent

I want my child/children to have these opportunities and for my family to be supported.  How do I apply?

Apply using the Devon County Council Citizen Portal: https://oneonline.devon.gov.uk/CCSCitizenPortal_LIVE/Account/Login

I don’t think I will be eligible?

The benefits, as detailed by parents of Pupils Premium pupils, far outweigh the short time needed to complete the online form.  You will get an instant decision. Even if you think you might not qualify, you may be surprised!

A significant groups of parents each year don’t realise that they qualify – missing out on vital resources for their children and the school.

I have tried to apply but I have got stuck/do not have computer access

Please contact the School Office and they will arrange for you to use a computer in a quiet and private area at a convenient time.

If you need support, then please book an appointment with Mr Hitchcock or Mr Lee and they will be happy to assist.
