Use of Pupil Premium funds

The Government continues to allocate Pupil Premium funding to support schools in ‘closing the gap’ and improving the outcomes and performance of children who need it most, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Pupil Premium is primarily awarded to those children who are eligible for and registered to receive free school meals (FSMs), as well as those who are ‘Looked After’ (LAC).

Schools decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, as we are in the best position to assess what additional provision should be made for children whilst they are
learning in our school.
Throughout the Altmore & Lathom Schools Federation, we believe that there should be a balance between academic and emotional
support to ensure all children are able to achieve their potential.

Funding Levels

For 2014-2015 Altmore Infant School has been allocated the sum of: £170,300.00
For 2014 -2015 Lathom Junior School has been allocated the sum of: £284,700.00

During the last academic year appropriately 31% of Altmore children received FSMs and 46% of Lathom children received FSMs (January census 2014).

Use of Pupil Premium

Altmore Infant School and Lathom Junior has used this funding to continue to build on its commitment to improve pupil attainment and to support any child who may be underachieving, regardless of whether they are registered for FSMs or not.

All classes across the Federation have additional adult support, which ensures that the needs of individual/groups of children are identified early and focussed
specific support/provision put in place.

Impact of the Pupil Premium

Children in receipt of FSMs do very well at both of our schools. For example last year 2013-2014 the average point score (APS) of those children in receipt of FSMs at the end of KS1 (Year 2) was15.8 compared to the national score of 14.3, and at the end of KS2 (Year 6) 30.2 compared to the national score of 26.7.
