Pupil Premium

The Government’s Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers. Schools have the freedom to spend this funding as they see fit based on their knowledge of pupil needs.

The Pupil Premium will be used to provide additional educational support to improve progress and raise the standard of achievement for these pupils.

The funding will be used to narrow and close the gap between the achievement of these pupils and their peers.

As far as its powers allow, Livingstone Road Primary Federation will use the additional funding to address any underlying inequalities for eligible children.

  • Raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap with their peers
