Financial Information - Pupil Premium


The School achieved FMSIS in November 2009; each year the governing body completed the SFVS - Schools Financial Value Statement and ensure that the School is providing the best value for money possible.

In 2012/13 our Pupil premium allocation was £2,119, 2013/14 - £6,018 and in 2014/15, our provisional allocation is £10,000. This money is used to ensure that children who are looked after or have free school meals make the best possible progress. The money funds a teaching assistant 3 afternoons each week in KS 1 to run intervention groups according to provision mapping. From September 2014, this is also funding a teaching assistant in Key Stage 2 every afternoon to provide pupils with additional support.

 In addition, families who access the pupil premium are given support with funding educational visits, after school clubs, holiday care and music lessons according to their specific needs and interests. 

The impact of the funding was that during the academic year 2013 -2014, 100% of these pupils made expected or better progress. 

Website safety


Simonstone St. Peter's Primary School operates the following safety policy on our school website regarding the use of photographs, to ensure the privacy and safety of our pupils at school.

  • Where pupils are named, only their first name is given.
  • Where a pupil is named, no photograph of that pupil is displayed.
  • Where a photograph is used which shows a pupil/pupils, no name/s are displayed.

By observing these points, the school ensures that visitors to the web-site cannot link images of pupils to names of pupils. No other private information about pupils is ever published on the website such as surnames or contact details.
