Pupil Premium & Other Government Grants


"Funding to support the small group of disadvantaged pupils and also those who have special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities is well used. Pupils make rapid progress and often more rapid than their peers because of this."

- Ofsted December 2017

The pupil premium is designed to address inequality by giving every school and teacher the resources they need to help their most disadvantaged pupils, allowing them the freedom to respond appropriately to individual circumstances.

If you receive benefits and have a child in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2, you may be entitled to register for free school meals. Click on the link below for more details.

Our Vision

At St. Mary’s we want our children to lead healthy, active lives, be physically confident and recognise their own successes. We hope to achieve this by providing a range of enjoyable activities and opportunities through a high quality curriculum. Specialist teachers visit the school and teach all children on a weekly basis. We are also part of the North Herts School Sports Partnership, which provide the children with professional coaching sessions and access to a variety of festivals and competitions with other local schools.
