Pupil Premium & PE/Sport Premium

  • Pupil Premium

    The government provides schools with additional pupil premium funding to support children from low income families who are or have been eligible for free school meals, children who have been in care continuously for more than 6 months and children with parents in the armed forces (or who have served in the armed forces in the past).

    The funding is intended to help tackle underachievement for these pupils. At Longmoor Community Primary School, approximately 43% of our pupils are in receipt of pupil premium funding.  We use this funding to:

    • Ensure that the educational needs of all pupils are met through high quality teaching.
    • Ensure that appropriate additional provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately identified and catered for.

    If you live in Liverpool and receive any of the following benefits you can claim free school meals for your school-aged child and the school will then automatically receive pupil premium funding for them. This is also applicable to children who attend our Nursery for whole-day sessions. Please apply even if your child is in our Infants as we will still receive funding for them:

    • Income Support
    • Income based Jobseeker’s Allowance
    • Income related Employment Support Allowance
    • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
    • The guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
    • Child Tax Credit – as long as you have a yearly household income of less than £16,190 (as assessed by HM
    • Revenue and Customs) and do not get Working Tax Credit
    • Working Tax Credit run-on (paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit)
    • Universal Credit

    It’s very simple to do – just visit the Liverpool City Council page here to check and apply online. If you are in receipt of Universal Credit, you have to submit a paper form which can be downloaded from the same page. If you need any assistance with your application just ask at the school office.

    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. However, schools are to be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families. Please see below for information regarding how the pupil premium was spent in the last financial year and the plans for future spending.

      PE & Sport Premium

      Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. Currently, Longmoor receives £8000, plus £5 per pupil on roll. The school uses the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport on offer.
