Pupil Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.

PUPIL PREMIUM

What is Pupil Premium funding?

The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of pupils who are vulnerable to possible under achievement. These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals, those ‘looked after’ by the Local Authority and children of Armed Service Personnel. The intended effect of this funding is to accelerate progress and raise attainment. It is for schools to decide how to spend the Pupil Premium, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.

Schools are required to publish on-line information about how they have used the funding and its impact.

At Lugwardine Primary Academy funding continues to be used as follows, in order to accelerate progress and raise attainment of Pupil Premium pupils:

  • To ensure that attendance of pupils is consistent with whole school targets.

  • To ensure that pupils have their needs clearly identified and their progress closely monitored through school.

  • To support the cost of employing staff, to support pupils in small group work.

  • To provide high quality staff training.

  • To ensure quality first teaching.

  • To provide intervention programmes for under achieving pupils and those with special educational needs who require a boost to their learning, eg small group reading, writing, maths tuition.

  • To support the cost of employing a Pupil Premium Higher Level Teaching Assistant to identify and address individual needs.

  • To support the cost of employing a Learning Mentor to support pupils in overcoming barriers to learning.

  • To provide specialist tuition, eg. music, sport and out of hours support.

  • To provide additional teaching hours to enable pupils to be taught in smaller groups.

  • Ensure Pupil Premium pupils have access to extra curricular activities.

  • Provision of resources and assessment materials to enable pupils to maximise progress and attainment.

Other funding has been added to ensure that we support all pupils at Lugwardine Primary Academy.

The impact of this work is evident in the attainment of pupil premium pupils as detailed below.

The table below shows the average points progress made in 2016-2017 across the whole school. At Lugwardine Primary Academy we aspire to each child making 4 points progress in one year.
