Pupil Premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils. Research has shown that pupils from deprived backgrounds underachieve compared to their non-deprived peers. The Government has used pupils entitled to free school meals (FSM) as an indicator of deprivation and have provided a fixed amount of money for schools per pupil based on the number of pupils registered for FSM over a rolling 6 year period. Pupil Premium funding for 2020 – 21 is as follows:
· £1345 per eligible pupil recorded as Ever 6 FSM
· £2345 per eligible pupil recorded as looked-after and previously looked-after
· £310 per eligible pupil recorded as service premium (a pupil with a parent serving in HM forces).
At Lancaster Lane School we are ambitious for all our pupils and we strongly believe that no matter what their background no child should be left behind. We seek to instil a lifelong love of learning in our pupils and a belief that they can succeed and achieve in their lives.
We acknowledge that there is a great challenge to ensure that those children from more deprived backgrounds achieve their potential and this policy outlines how we will support those pupils including how we will use our Pupil Premium funding to facilitate this.
