  • What is the Pupil Premium?

    Pupil Premium funding is additional funding allocated to all schools to support disadvantaged pupils. Corpus Christi Catholic Primary School receives pupil premium for: children that are cared for or adopted from care; children whose parents are in the armed forces; and for every pupil who has received free school meals over the past 6 years.

  • How can I find out if my child is entitled to the Pupil Premium funding?

    The process for applying is straightforward and confidential. You can check online using a ‘Free School Meals / Pupil Premium Service’ at http://www.birmingham.gov.uk/free-school-meals . After entering essential details into the web site, the online application process links to the Department for Education system for checking eligibility and gives an immediate ‘yes’ or ‘no’ response, and will notify our school. 

    Children in Reception and KS1 are automatically entitled to a free school lunch; however, registering your child for free meals will entitle them to additional support with the cost of school visits, PTA events and extra-curricular clubs, as well as raising additional funds for the school.

  • How is the funding used?

    Corpus Christi catholic Primary School seeks to ensure the effectiveness of its use of the Pupil Premium. We recognise that barriers to achievement take a variety of forms and look for individual ways to support each child to achieve their very best. We do this by offering our children a wide range of opportunities and ensuring that these are accessible for everyone. We work with our families and colleagues to make sure everyone has high aspirations for all pupils. We ensure pupil premium children are well represented and have a voice on our Pupil Parliament and eco committees.
