Pupil Premium Statement

Pupil Premium Statement 2016-17

The Pupil Premium is additional funding provided to schools. It is allocated according to the number of pupils who are eligible for free school meals (FSM). A smaller amount is allocated according to the children of service families, and a further allocation is made for pupils who have been ‘Previously Looked After’ or ‘Looked After’ (in care) for 6 months or more.

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it the most.

In 2012, funding was extended to include pupils who have been eligible for free school meals within the past 6 years. This is known as ‘Ever 6’.

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. Measures in the annual performance tables capture the achievement of those pupils covered by the Pupil Premium.

Below is a summary of Pupil Premium expenditure during 2015-2016 and the impact this had on pupil progress. Additionally, information is also provided for how St Luke’s plans to use this year’s Pupil Premium allocation in 2016-2017.
