Pupil Premium Statement for 2023-24


Pupil Premium was introduced by the Government in 2011 and is allocated to schools based upon the number of pupils who are or have been registered for free school meals at any point over the previous six years (known as Ever6),  Looked After Children (LAC) or Post-Looked After Children.

Pupil Premium 2023-24

For 2023-2024 the amount of Pupil Premium allocated will be £1455 for each 'Ever6' FSM pupil and £2530 for each Looked After Child or post-Looked After Child.

The Pupil Premium Grant is to be used to raise the attainment of ‘Ever6’, LAC pupils and post-LAC pupils and close the gap between free school meal (FSM) and non-FSM pupils. Here at Stalmine we are committed to making every penny of the Pupil Premium count.

 In line with our School Development Plan to raise attainment of disadvantaged, Pupil Premium, FSM and Ever 6 children we will allocate funding for 2023/24 in the following areas:

  • To accelerate progress in Literacy and Numeracy
  • To provide targeted Speech and Language support
  • To improve curriculum opportunities for children - resources/clubs/visits etc...
  • Provide emotional / social support and intervention for identified groups
  • To provide personalised learning opportunities - mentoring, 1-to-1 support, intervention
  • Targeted PD training for well-being
  • Targeted PD training for intervention 
  • PD for 'closing the gap' in the core skills of reading, writing and maths
