Lamplugh CE School
Pupil Premium Allocation 2017-2018
The government allocated a specific Pupil Premium grant (PPG) to every school beginning in 2011-2012. At this time the government used pupils entitled to Free School Meals (FSM), ‘looked after’ pupils and pupils with parents in the armed forces as an indicator. They delegated a fixed amount of money to schools per pupil based on the number registered for FSM, ‘looked after’ or pupils with parents in the Armed Forces. The key priority with the PPG is to narrow the disadvantaged gap by addressing inequalities and raising the attainment of those entitled.
At Lamplugh CE School, all members of staff and governors recognise and accept responsibility for disadvantaged pupils and are committed to meeting their pastoral, social and academic needs within a caring environment.
Pupil Premium provides funding for pupils:
· who have been in receipt of free school meals (FSM) at any point in the past six years
· who are in the care of the local authority
· who were in the care of the local authority but have been adopted, or are subject to a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order or a residence order
· whose parents(s) serve in the armed forces
Schools are held accountable for how this funding is spent. School performance tables will capture the achievement of
disadvantaged children. School inspections will examine whether this funding is spent appropriately. At Lamplugh CE School we are committed to providing effective resources and ensuring vital support is in place for our disadvantaged children, whilst recognising that not all disadvantaged children will be entitled to pupil premium funding.
Lamplugh CE School prides itself on its inclusive policy, ensuring equal provision for all our pupils; we see each child as an individual, each with their own needs and challenges, and we do our best to work out how we can help each one succeed.
At Lamplugh CE School we use our pupil premium funding to support pupils in the following ways:
The school’s detailed tracking system highlights pupil progress: current data shows that, when compared to their starting points, pupils for whom we receive ‘pupil premium funding’ all make good or better progress.
The impact of ‘pupil premium’ funding is reported to governors on a termly basis.
