Pupil Premium

At Lexden Springs we are extremely proud of the achievements all pupils make, including those who are eligible for Pupil Premium.

We regularly assess and analyse individual pupil progress throughout the course of their personalised 10 week pupil premium programmes, combined with class assessments using a range of data collection programmes such as B-Squared, a database containing P level and National Curriculum Level Assessment Data, SIMs (School Information Management system and Target Tracker, to determine whether our pupils are making better than expected progress, expected progress or less than expected progress.

Purpose of Pupil Premium Funding

The government believes that the pupil premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

The pupil premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’).

The data shows how pupils have benefited from the input, as the majority are in the upper or median quartiles.

The input has allowed individual pupils to meet or exceeded targets. At the beginning of the academic year they were flagged up as being likely to miss reaching these targets.

Some pupils are still working in the lower quartiles due to illness or other issues.
