Pupil Premium

The government believes that the Pupil Premium, awarded to Linden Lodge in addition to the main school funding, is the best way to address inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers, by ensuring that there is additional funding for 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 (FSM) 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 (known as 'LAC') as well as children of armed service personnel.
The Principal and school leaders make decisions about how best to use the Pupil Premium.
