Pupil Premium

Childwall Sports and Science Academy has the duty to ensure every child, regardless of ability or background, is given the equal opportunity to progress and achieve their full potential. This duty reflects the Lydiate Learning Trust values of Engage Enable and Empower underpinning every aspect of the education we provide for our students.
We intend to use the Pupil Premium funding to further existing provisions and to introduce new strategies for students entitled to this support. These interventions aim to reduce the gap between the attainment made by Pupil Premium students and their peers.

The 'Pupil Premium' is additional funding which is allocated to schools on the basis of the number of students who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point over the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’). The aim of 'Pupil Premium' funding is to address the current underlying inequalities which exist between children from disadvantaged backgrounds and their more affluent peers. The Pupil Premium also provides funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months and the children of service personnel.

Background

The Pupil Premium was initially introduced in April 2011 when schools received an additional £488 for each of their pupils eligible for free school meals. In April 2012 this was increased to £623 and from April 2013 it has been increased to £900 per eligible pupil. Children of service personnel receive a lower amount of £250.
