As you are probably aware for the last few years the government has allocated additional funds to schools to support the education of children in care (CiC) and on free school meals (FSM). Their reason for this is these children tend to do less well at school, be less likely to go on to higher education and are more likely to be unemployed as adults. While we know that this will definitely not be the case for all children on free school meals or in care, it is good that the government recognises that children facing these circumstances can sometimes face greater challenges.
At St Margaret's we want all of our children to 'Aspire and Achieve' and we work really hard to help every child have high aspirations for what they can achieve and high hopes for their future.
The attached reports are to let parents and other interested parties know how we have spent the pupil premium funding allocated to our school.
