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), looked after children (LAC), 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’). Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, and children of service personnel.
Please see the Pupil Premium Strategy and termly impact reports below for further details.
Longford Park Special School of the Year - Pupil Premium Awards 2013
During the Pupil Premium Awards in 2013, Longford Park School was very proud to receive the award of Special School of the Year from Mr Clegg at Whitehall. We were recognised for the progress of our pupils who were eligible for the pupil premium grant and presented with a trophy and £10,000 funding. This was invested in new school resources and research into further improving the outcomes for this body of students.
