If you think that your child may be entitled to Pupil Premium Funding, please contact our school. Your child could be entitled to additional finance which will be used to directly benefit their education.
Some of the main barriers to educational achievement faced by Lound’s Pupil Premium Children may include:
Lower levels of family engagement with school/education.
Lower levels of literacy skills; including reading, vocabulary and oracy skills.
Attendance below our expectations and targets.
Children from single-parent families.
Children who have lived through Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES)
Complex Special Educational Needs or Disabilities.
Children requiring bespoke, alternative provision.
Children requiring Speech, Language and Communication support.
Children whose families are accessing extra support including Family Liaison, Social Care and MAST (Sheffield’s Multi-Agency-Support-Team).
Children requiring support for mental health and/or parents requiring mental health support.
This list is not exhaustive and nor does it identify individuals/those in receipt of Pupil Premium Funding. It is intended to identify some of the barriers that children may face. This list also applies to many of our children who are not in receipt of Pupil Premium Funding.
How Do We Spend Our Pupil Premium Funding?
Projections for spending are included in the Three Year Strategy Review.
(Pupil Premium Strategy Reviews). It is acknowledged by the DfE that analysing the effectiveness of spending for 2019/20 is difficult. It is suggested that we report effectiveness of spending for this period at the end of the financial year, including the period from Sept'19.
More detailed information about our planned spending for 2021 to 2024 (a three year plan) can also be found in the Strategy Review. This includes spending of the government's Recovery Premium Grant.
We receive £1,320 per Pupil Premium student, £2,300 per Looked After Child and £300 per Service Child giving a total of £46,800 in Pupil Premium funding, across the Academy (Roughly £13,000 for the Infants and £33,000 for the Juniors). Currently, around 11% of our children are eligible for Pupil Premium Grant.
If you would like any further information or would like to speak privately and confidentially about whether your child may be eligible, please contact me at the Junior School or email me firstname.lastname@example.org
