The allocated funding for Langdale CE Primary School for the academic year 2019-20 is £3960.00
The pupil premium was introduced in April 2011. It is allocated to children from low-income families who have been eligible for free school meals in the last six years, children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months and children with parents serving in the forces.
The funding is to be used to address inequalities in educational results. The level of current pupil premium support funding is as follows:
Disadvantaged Pupils Pupil Premium per Pupil
Pupils in reception to Year 6 recorded as Ever 6 FSM £1,320
Looked After Children (LAC) £2,300
Children adopted from care under the Adoption and Children Act 2002 £2,300
and children who have left care under a special Guardianship or Residence Order
Pupils in Reception to Year 6 recorded as Ever 4 Service Child in receipt of a child £300
pension from the Ministry of Defence
The Service Pupil Premium
The Service Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 in recognition of specific challenges faced by children whose parents are in service and as part of a commitment to the armed forces covenant.
It is designed to assist the school in providing the additional support that these children may need and is currently worth £300 per service child who meets the eligibility criteria:
- One of their parents serving in the regular armed forces
- They have been registered as a 'service child' in the school census
- One of their parents died whilst serving in the armed forces and the pupil receives a pension under the Armed Forces Pension Scheme
- Pupils with a parent who is on full commitment as part of the full-time reserve service.
- Eligible schools receive the SPP so that they can offer mainly pastoral support to children during challenging times and to help mitigate the negative impact on service children of family mobility or parental deployment. Schools have flexibility over how they use the SSP as they are best placed to understand and respond to the specific needs of those pupils.
If your child meets the eligibility criteria, please arrange an appointment to speak to the Headteacher to discuss the specific needs of your family so that school can consider how best to allocate the funding.
When identifying barriers to learning, we consider the following for individual children and cohorts:
- If the child remains on FSM
- If the child is registered as SEND
- If the child is looked after or adopted from care
- If the child has been subject to a safeguarding plan, has been a child in need, or is receiving Early Help
- If the child has received social and emotional support such as nurture or mental health support
- If the child is from a single parent family of has separated parents, including bereavement
- If the child is from a large number of siblings
- If the child was born prematurely or is a summer born child
Langdale School's typical barriers are:
- Unsupported learning habits at home e.g. the home may lack resources for learning and pupils may not have had reading modelled to them. The children may not have adequate support for homework.
- Pupils may have family circumstances or expectations that impact negatively upon their learning and ability to take up extra-curricular opportunities.
- Social and emotional issues resulting in low confidence and self-esteem.
How will Langdale staff measure the impact of Pupil Premium spending?
We monitor progress on attainment, which captures the achievement of children covered by Pupil Premium. At Langdale the data collection, monitoring and tracking of each cohort's attainment, will be used to inform each child's progress and enable early identification of need, support and appropriate intervention.
All matters regarding the use of Pupil Premium funds are treated with discretion and in confidence.
