Pupil Premium funding
The pupil premium is additional money given to publicly funded schools in England. The purpose is to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils by supporting them to reach their potential. Research shows that pupils from deprived backgrounds underachieve compared to their peers. The premium is provided to enable these pupils by supporting them to reach their potential. The Government has used pupils entitled to free school meals (FSM), looked after children and service children as indicators of deprivation, and have provided a fixed amount of money for schools per pupil based on the number of pupils registered for FSM over a rolling six year period. 

At The Lancaster Academy we believe that every pupil should be ambitious to succeed irrespective of their background. We are committed to raising their aspirations and supporting them on their path to success. We are passionate about providing meaningful and enriching learning opportunities that inspire our pupils both in and beyond the classroom, while recognising that the diversity of our pupils’ needs necessitates a personalised approach. It is our aim to challenge all pupils to be the best that they can be and staff at The Lancaster Academy work hard to close the gaps and ensure that pupils are equipped to achieve their potential.
