Pupil Premium

At Lucas Vale Primary School, we are committed to securing the best outcomes for all our pupils.

As a school we will challenge individual pupils to achieve the highest levels regardless of prior attainment or personal circumstances. Pupil Premium funding is a key resource for ensuring the realisation of these aspirations for some pupils. The funding is paid to schools for each pupil who is identified as being eligible for Free School Meals, or ‘Looked After’ by the Local Authority, or who have a parent serving in the armed forces. This identified funding will be strategically deployed thereby enabling and supporting targeted children within these groups to achieve in line or above with similar groups nationally.

The funding criteria makes explicit that personalised support is provided to close the gap in learning between underperforming and vulnerable groups

The DfE has given schools the freedom to use the Pupil Premium funding as they see fit, based upon their knowledge of pupil needs.

‘It is for schools to decide how the pupil premium, allocated to schools per Free School Meal pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.’

However, we are accountable for the use of this additional funding.
