Lostwithiel School Pupil Premium Strategy
The pupil premium strategy lead is Natalie Simmonds (headteacher).
The pupil premium lead governor is Kirsty Strudwick.
Pupil Premium funding is allocated to schools to help improve the attainment of their disadvantaged pupils. The Pupil Premium grant allocates funding to schools on the basis of the number of their pupils deemed to come from disadvantaged backgrounds and asks schools to demonstrate how the money is helping to close the gap between them and their peers. Pupils who are eligible for Free School Meals or have been eligible for Free School Meals during the previous six years (known as Ever 6), receive Pupil Premium funding, as are children whose Parents/Carers are in the services. Children who have been Looked After for one day or more, were adopted from care, have a special guardianship order or a residence order receive Pupil Premium Plus funding.
Our Pupil Premium Strategy outlines how we are using the Pupil Premium grant to provide high quality teaching for all, targeted support and other approaches to narrow the attainment gap. As a school, we believe that all pupils, irrespective of background, should feel a sense of belonging and that high quality and inclusive teaching should make learning accessible for all children.
We now use a 3 year strategy for the allocation of pupil premium funding. Please see the pupil premium report below to see the impact of pupil premium funding and the strategy for 2020-2023
This strategy is regularly reviewed. Our next review is November 2023. Please find details of the annual review documents and updates to the strategy in 2021 and 2022 below.
