The Pupil Premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. There are three categories of children that qualify for a Pupil Premium Allocation: Children who are eligible for free school meals (FSM) which also include those pupils who have been eligible over the last six years (Ever 6); Looked After Children (LAC) and children who are adopted from care.
Schools have the responsibility of deciding how this funding is used and are held accountable for how this additional funding impacts on the learning and achievement of pupils from families facing economic difficulties.
Governors with responsibility for Pupil Premium at Lambs Lane meet half termly with a member of the senior leadership team to discuss the pupil premium register, the impact and action report and the progress and attainment of the eligible children. A full report goes to Governors termly. See below for our Pupil Premium Policy.
Ensuring every child has the best opportunity of success is a very important part of Lambs Lane school life. ‘Reach out and Shine’ applies to all aspects of learning and to every child. A carefully planned curriculum of progressive skills, identification of barriers to learning, rigorous pupil progress monitoring, a detailed action plan as well as robust and Individual Provision Plans (IPPs), ensure that all children have the opportunity to be the best they can be.
A Local Authority Review on 28th April 2016 reported that:
‘The Pupil Premium leader is determined, focused and assured. Reviewers recognise that all staff are working earnestly to close gaps, and taking every opportunity to allow pupils’ moments to shine’. See report here
