Pupil Premium & Catch up funding
Pupil Premium Statement
Pupil Premium is a Government initiative, which provides additional funding aimed at children from deprived backgrounds. Research clearly shows established links between deprivation and educational underachievement, with the grant enabling schools to support these children in overcoming any barriers they may have in successfully engaging with their education. The Pupil Premium is provided in order to support these children to reach their full potential by accelerating their progress and providing them with experiences which may not normally be available to them. Pupil Premium also applies to those children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces. Our Pupil Premium policy provides further information.
Pupil Premium Impact
At Lapworth C of E Primary School we are committed to meeting the pastoral, social and academic needs of children recognised as 'disadvantaged' and ensuring all children are supported to reach their full potential. We aim to ensure that every child leaves Lapworth fully prepared to meet the challenges in their future and with the determination and resilience to succeed. Therefore all our staff and governors carefully track the progress of our 'Pupil Premium funded' children and ensure that money is used effectively to impact on their learning.
The targeted and strategic use of Pupil Premium funding will support us in achieving our aims.
See below for our policy and strategy statement.
