Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is the money that the government gives to our school to help our children in our school from less affluent backgrounds. The money is allocated to all schools with pupils on roll that are known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM ). For every child on FSM the government will provide school with extra money which is in addition to the main school funding we receive.  As a school we have the freedom to spend the Premium, in a way that we think will best support the raising of attainment for the most vulnerable pupils.

The pupil premium at Lindley is used to support our most vulnerable children in a variety of ways:

  • Intervention work for small groups of children who are known to be underachieving
  • Extra curricular activities
  • After school clubs
  • Enrichment activities
  • Free school uniform ( a polo shirt and cardigan or sweatshirt)

As this money is allocated to any family who is entitled to free school meals, it is really important that you register even if you do not claim the free school meal. This money is really important to school and enables us to provide children with activities that otherwise we would not be able to afford.
