Pupil Premium

 

Lincewood Primary School

Predicted Pupil Premium Expenditure

Academic Year September 2017 – July 2018

Pupil Premium 

Pupil Premium is an additional government grant which is added to the main funding that schools receive in their annual budgets. Pupil Premium is allocated to pupils who are currently registered for free school meals or who have received free school meals at any time in the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6, FSM’). The funding for these children is £1,320 per year. Children who have parents in the Forces are allocated £300 per year.  Any ‘Children Looked After’, Adopted or subject to ‘Special Guardianship’ arrangements are allocated £1,900. 


The aim of the Pupil Premium funding is to support eligible children who may be vulnerable to under-achievement and address any attainment gaps so that they achieve at least as well as their peers.  As well as focusing upon academic endeavours, it may also be appropriate to provide support to nurture their well-being and to provide these children with access to a variety of enriching experiences.

 

This is based on research showing that children from low income families perform less well at school than their peers. Often, children who are entitled to pupil premium face challenges such as poor language and communication skills, less family support, lack of confidence and issues with attendance and punctuality. The pupil premium is intended to directly benefit the children who are eligible, helping to narrow the gap between them and their classmates.

 

At Lincewood Primary School the progress and attainment of pupils who receive the Pupil Premium Grant is tracked through half termly pupil progress meetings.  At these meetings each child is discussed in depth, his or her specific needs are outlined and interventions to meet these needs are put in place.  The half termly reviews ensure that the support that the children receive remains relevant and appropriate.
