At Lyndhurst Primary School, we believe that all our children have an equal entitlement, and should have an equal opportunity to:
Develop imagination and creativity
Access quality teaching and learning
Acquire skills and abilities
Have a love of learning
The school receives funding from the Government to support it in trying to meet this aspiration. This is known as the Pupil Premium.
Pupil premium is additional funding, from the government, provided to schools for supporting more pupils from low income families to ensure they benefit from the same opportunities as all other children. There are three categories of children that qualify for pupil premium:
Children who are eligible for free school meals (FSM)
Looked after children
Armed forces children
The targeted and strategic use of Pupil Premium funding will support the school in achieving the best possible outcomes for all our pupils.
