Pupil Premium Funding

The Pupil Premium is funding provided to schools which is additional to main school funding allocation. It is allocated according to the number of pupils on-roll who are eligible for free school meals (FSM), and an allocation for each pupil who has been ‘Looked After’ (in care) for 6 months or more.

We focus our Pupil Premium expenditure on the progress of disadvantaged pupils. We plan and regularly review a range of interventions and strategies than enable us to diminish the difference between disadvantaged pupils and non-disadvantaged pupils. The vast majority of the funding enables us to teach children in smaller groups and ensure that every disadvantaged pupil has full access to a broad and varied provision throughout their time at Leigh Beck Infant and Nursery Academy.
