Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium

 

What is it?

The pupil premium is a grant given to schools for each child who currently claims free school meals or has done so in the past. 

How do we spend this money?

We use this money to support individual children and groups to make progress.  We make sure that it impacts on the children positively by improving their literacy and mathematical skills, as well as their social and emotional well-being.

At St Brigid's we use a range of strategies to support children's progress; some of these include

  • Teaching assistants 
  • Interventions
  • Pre and post teaching of skills 
  • Extra-curricular clubs 
  • Speech and Language Therapy 
  • Play Therapy
  • Counselling services 
  • Optiminds brain training
