Park Lane Primary

Pupil Premium

This is funding given to the school to support children who have or have had Free School Meals.

This is currently set at £1320 per pupil per year and at present we have 79 pupils currently entitled to Pupil Premium funding.

This money is spent in a variety of ways to ensure that these children are having interventions appropriate to their needs. The impact of this is being tracked through termly data analysis and reported to the school governors.

If you think you are eligible for Free School Meals, please complete the application form below and return it to the school office.

You will also find Pupil Premium reports summarising how this money was spent last year and the impact that this spending had for Pupil Premium children, along with how the money will be spent this year.

Pupil Premium 2018 - 19

The government is concerned that, nationally, there is an attainment gap between those pupils who are eligible for Free School Meals and those who are not.  The Pupil Premium is a grant given to schools to reduce this gap and improve the co-educational outcome and life chances for pupils who receive free school meals, children in care and children of service families.
