Pupil Premium


The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These groups include pupils who are entitled to free school meals, those who are or who have been looked after by the local authority and children of armed service personnel.

We are required to report on how much funding Ladywood Primary School receives, how the funding allocated is to be used and the difference this has made to the attainment of disadvantaged pupils. Click here to view copies of our Pupil Premium Reports for Parents and Governors. A copy of the school's Pupil Premium policy can also be found with other school policies under Useful Information.

For more details on the Pupil Premium in general, please visit: http://www.education.gov.uk/schools/pupilsupport/premium

The level of funding we receive is directly linked to the number of children on roll claiming free school meals and in the other groups mentioned above. To ensure that we receive the funding that our children are entitled to and to ensure that we can continue to deliver these strategies to support your children, we need to ensure that everyone who may be entitled to claim free meals has applied. If you think you may be eligible please contact the school office or telephone the free school meals team on 01226 773513.
