Lightmoor Village Primary School

Pupil Premium

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current inequalities by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage pupils reaches the pupils who need it most.

The Pupil Premium is funding provided to schools which is additional to main school funding. It is allocated according to the number of pupils on-roll who are eligible for free school meals (FSM), this will also include pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure). Children of service families, and an allocation for each pupil who has been ‘Looked After’ (in care) for 6 months or more.

It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. However, schools are to be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families. From September 2012, this information must be published on the school website.

At the end of the academic year the impact of this spending and its value for money will be reviewed.
