What is it used for? At St Mary’s Catholic Primary School we believe that every child should be supported to achieve success academically, socially and physically. The targeted and strategic use of Pupil Premium supports us in achieving this. Schools decide on how best to use the Pupil Premium and we are required to publish how the money is used each year.
