Pupil Premium


Pupil Premium Funding

At Corpus Christi R C Primary School, we believe that all children have the right to the best education available which includes a range of experiences that make it truly memorable. To this end, we are allocated a small amount of money in our budget to support our most vulnerable children. This is known as Pupil Premium funding. Pupils are entitled to free school meals up to the end of Year 2, but this is not the same as Pupil Premium Funding. Pupils in Foundation Stage to Year 2 are entitled to Pupil Premium funding too and this can make a big difference to their education if they are eligible (see below). Please contact the school office for more information. 


What is Pupil Premium?

Pupils qualify as being eligible for Pupil Premium at Corpus Christi if they are in Foundation Stage to Year 6 and satisfy at least one of the following:

  • They are in the care of the Local Authority
  • They are children of Service Personnel
  • Their parents receive Income Support and/or Income based job seeker’s allowance
  • Their parents receive income-related employment and support allowance
  • Their parents receive support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • Their parents receive Child Tax Credit (provided you are not entitled to working tax credit -unless four week run on) and have an annual income (as assessed by HM Revenue & Customs) that does not exceed £16,190

This means that the school receives additional funding for your child. 


If you are successful, this funding will be used in school in the following way:


  • £30 per term contribution to school clubs or outside school clubs e.g. karate/brownies/ swimming or music tuition
  • 2 free school jumpers and PE T-Shirt each year
  • Swimming  in school – free of charge
  • Free schools trips
  • Contribution towards residential trips
  • More targeted interventions to ensure rapid progress
  • Opportunities to take part in extra curricular activities
  • Resources to support the rapid progress of your child


The funding allows all pupils to benefit from a higher ratio of adults who support personalised learning.
