Pupil Premium

 

Overview Number of pupils and pupil premium grant (PPG)

Total number of pupils on roll = 169
Number of pupils benefitting from PPG = 16

The Pupil Premium is designed to ensure that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. The funding is allocated to Local Authorities and schools with pupils who are eligible for free school meals (FSM), are looked after or have parents currently in the Armed Forces. From April 2012 the coverage of the Premium was widened to include those eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years.

The funding allocated for 2016-17 is:
£1320 per Ever 6 FSM child
£300 for children of Armed Forces families within the last 5 years
(Ever 5) £1900 per looked after child.

Objectives in spending PPG:
  • To narrow the gap in terms of attainment for children in receipt of PPG.
  • To accelerate progress for children in receipt of PPG.
  • To support the children’s social and emotional development.
Total amount to be allocated to the school for the current academic year: 2016-17 £25,066 for Ever 6 FSM pupils, including £3800 for LAC

How the expenditure impacts on the educational attainment of those pupils who were eligible for pupil premium

At LHS our students have unique and individual needs which must be met in order for each to access learning to their full potential.

The school plans for targeted intervention work to ensure identified gaps in learning are closed for pupils eligible for pupil premium.

Parents may wish to ask about the impact of specific interventions to support their child which can be reported directly to individual parents by annual report, at parents evening or review meetings.

Outcomes to date: The use of PPG has had an positive impact in the following areas:

  • School attendance
  • Social communication
  • Emotional well-being
  • Inclusion in the full curriculum
  • Academic attainment- all PP children at LHS (RAISE validated data for 2015) were above national averages in reading, writing and maths at the end of key stages one and two
