Pupil Premium Funding

Pupil Premium funding is extra money given to schools from the Department of Education.

Schools have the freedom to spend the funding in a way they think will best support raising the achievement of funded pupils in comparison with their non Pupil Premium peers, whatever their academic starting point and potential.

Money is awarded to pupils who:

  • Are in care (Looked After Children) or have been adopted from care  

  • Qualify for economic free school meals or have done at any time in the last 6 years

  • Are pupils of service  personnel or have been at any time in the last 6 years

The targeted and strategic use of pupil premium funding supports us in achieving our overall vision and aims for all children at Lindhead School.


  • The Headteacher will be responsible for Pupil Premium provision, with specific responsibilities taken by other members of staff

  • The Governing Body is directly involved in monitoring the use of Pupil Premium funding and supports the Headteacher in raising aspirations and expectations for all pupils and making decisions about provision

  • The School Business Manager will provide income and expenditure reports

  • We will ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils, since our primary purpose is to ensure that quality first teaching is provided throughout the school. 

  • We value the contribution that Pupil Premium funding is able to make to training for staff in key knowledge and skills

  • We will ensure that appropriate provision is made to meet the needs of pupils who belong to vulnerable groups and this includes ensuring that socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed.  We recognise however, that not all pupils who attract this additional funding will be socially disadvantaged.  We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered.  We support and encourage parent/carers in their application where appropriate.

  • Barriers to learning at our school include financial, social, emotional and special educational needs. 

  • Pupil Premium funding will be directed towards priority groups and individuals and may include non Pupil Premium children with similar needs.

  • Some funding will be directed at pastoral support to children and their families
