The information below is included on our website to help parents and carers in understanding how we support disadvantaged pupils. It is also a requirement by Ofsted. If you need any further information on this area, or on any other aspect of information provided on the website, please feel free to contact Lynne Rowe through the school office.
The government provides academies and schools with additional funding to help reduce inequalities and gaps in attainment between those students who are eligible for Pupil Premium funding and those who are not. This includes children eligible for free school meals, children who are looked after, and children whose parents are in the armed forces.
The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as Ever 6 FSM). The school can determine for itself how it spends its allocation according to the needs of the individual pupils. It is a requirement that a report is produced annually and available through the schools website.
The school is held to account for the spending of the pupil premium through the governing body of the school and through external agencies; such as Ofsted. The lead member of the Limpsfield Junior School leadership team for pupil premium is Martin Moss (Headteacher) and the pupil premium governors are Lisa Swann-Ferris (Chair of Governors) and Jamie Middleton.
Pupil Premium funding is allocated within the financial year (April to March) however the strategy is based on an academic year (September to August).
The current strategy reflects the needs of the present pupil population. Limpsfield historically has a dynamic pupil population with in-year leavers and starters and as such the strategy may change to meet changing needs.
