Breakfast Club 2021
We are delighted to inform you that from Monday 6th September we will be resuming our breakfast club, toast and a drink will be served in the atrium from 8.00 until 8.30am each morning. Research shows that if students eat and drink well in the morning they learn better throughout the day and attain higher.
Please see the letter below for more information.
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 students from deprived backgrounds underachieve compared to their peers. The premium is provided to enable these students by supporting them to reach their potential. The Government has used students 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 student based on the number of students registered for FSM over a rolling six year period.
At The Lancaster Academy we believe that every student 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 students both in and beyond the classroom, while recognising that the diversity of our students’ needs necessitates a personalised approach. It is our aim to challenge all students to be the best that they can be and staff at The Lancaster Academy work hard to close the gaps and ensure that students are equipped to achieve their potential.
For the academic year 2019-20 the Pupil Premium funding was in the region of £246,840. For the academic year 2020-21 the Pupil Premium funding will be in the region of £310,375.
Impact is measured annually from a range of sources including results, in year data, student voice activities and teacher assessment.
