Pupil Premium

    Pupil Premium at Ledbury Primary School


"Leaders have evaluated the spending of the pupil premium thoroughly and make planning the ways in which it is spent a key responsibility at a more senior leadership level. Leaders target additional support and track the impact closely to ensure that it is making a significant difference to disadvantaged pupils’ progress."

(LEDBURY PRIMARY SCHOOL Ofsted January 2018) 


The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement.  These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals (FSM), those looked after by the local authority and children of armed service personnel.  The intended effect of this funding is to accelerate progress and raise attainment.    

It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. 


At Ledbury Primary School:


  • We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of the pupils.
  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed
  • We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. 
  • Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals.
