Lockington Church Of England Voluntary Controlled Primary School

The little school that makes a big difference

Pupil Premium

The pupil premium is a government grant that is allocated to schools. The pupil premium is allocated to local authorities and schools with pupils on roll who are known to have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any time in the last six years. Each of these pupils will attract a specific amount of funding. Schools will have the freedom to spend the Premium, which is an addition to the underlying schools budget, in a way they think best to raise attainment for the most vulnerable pupils.

At Lockington CE VC Primary School we:

  • Aim to ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils;
  • Aim to ensure appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups;
  • Recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals and vice versa;
  • Closely observe results achieved by children receiving free school meals/pupil premium so that they are provided with the necessary support offered by one of our interventions.

If you think your child might be eligible please check the link: Eligibility for Free School Meals and apply.

The impact of the 2013/14 Pupil Premium Grant:

  • In Year 1, the percentage of pupils passing the Year 1 Phonics screening check was around the national average in a cohort including a significant proportion of SEN pupils.
  • By the end of Key Stage 1, pupils achieved broadly in line with expectations for English, Mathematics and Science according to their Foundation Stage results. Of a very small cohort, some level 3’s were achieved and all pupils achieved level 2 or above.
  • By the end of Key Stage 2 all pupils made 2 or more levels of progress in Reading, Writing and Mathematics based upon their Key Stage 1 results - significantly above national averages. Some pupils made outstanding progress, most pupils made at least good progress and all pupils produced results they could be proud of. In mathematics, for example, of the 6 pupils taking the national test one achieved level 4, four achieved level 5 and one achieved level 6 which is an excellent result. (Level 4 is the national expectation for a Year 6 pupil). This included excellent in- year progress for our transient pupils in Year 6 (those who had not been with us in Year 5).
  • Pupils in receipt of free school meals make similar progress to the other pupils in school.
