Pupil Premium & Sports Premium
Pupil Premium funding comes directly into school and is based on the number of children registered as eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) at the moment or in the past six years, are from a service family or are looked after by the local authority. The money is intended to ensure that these pupils do not fall behind their peers in their learning.
If you believe your child falls into any of these categories please come into the school office and they will explain how to complete the application form.
As part of our commitment to sports and healthy lifestyles we use our sports Premium funding to work with the Willow Tree Sports Partnership to ensure the pupils at Our Lady of the Visitation receive good quality Physical Education and a positive experience of sports and physical exercise. In 2016.2017 we achieved the Silver Sports mark with some elements of Gold.
We continue to employ a part-time sports specialist who is responsible for leading pupil participation in competitive and non-competitive sports both within and outside the school. This has had an enormous impact on sports within the school. In 2017 we were the first school to have a team in both the girls and the boys Peal Shield tournament. The girls won the Peal shield and the boys came a close second.
