Pupil Premium

LYNDON PUPIL PREMIUM STATEMENT 2016 – 2017

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

Schools are free to spend the PPG as they see fit. However, they are accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support students from low-income families. New measures of success will be included in the DfE performance tables; these will capture the achievement of those disadvantaged pupils covered by the PPG.

Objectives

  1. To raise the attainment and improve the progress of those students entitled to the PPG.
  2. To significantly close the attainment gap between Lyndon students entitled to the PPG and the attainment of ‘other’ students nationally.
  3. To ensure that the proportions of students entitled to the PPG making expected progress in Mathematics and English  is similar to their peers who are less disadvantaged.

Allocation of Pupil Premium Funding 2016/17 – Summary

Lyndon has been allocated £347,820 of pupil premium funding for the academic year 2016-2017.

The pupil premium value is allocated based on the number of students who are entitled to free school meals (or have received free school meals in the last 6 years) and also the number of students in care.
