Pupil Premium

At Vicarage Primary School we receive a Pupil Premium Grant for each pupil who is entitled to Free School Meals or for our Looked After Children.

Our aims for the Pupil Premium Grant are to diminish the gaps for our disadvantaged pupils by focusing on:  

  1. Low and persistent absence as well as mobility factors
  2. Learning difficulties related to SEND
  3. Social, emotional, behaviour as well as mental health issues
