What is Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011. It is additional funding provided by the Department for Education to narrow the attainment gap between pupils from low income families and their peers. It is allocated to schools with pupils on roll who are known to have been eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) at any time in the last six years, are Children Looked After (in the care of the Local Authority) or who have a parent serving in the Armed Services.
- We organise teaching and learning at Springwell Leeds in order to meet the needs of all children in the best way.
- We ensure that appropriate provision is made for children who belong to vulnerable groups and that socially disadvantaged children have their needs adequately assessed and met.
- We recognise that not all children who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged and we also recognise that not all children that are disadvantaged have free school meals. We allocate Pupil Premium funding to support any child
the school has identified as being socially disadvantaged and should be making better progress.
- We will allocate Pupil Premium funding after a needs analysis to identify priority groups and individuals.
