Pupil Premium Strategy
Pupil Premium Funding was introduced in 2011 and provides schools with additional funding to be spent on 'Disadvantaged Pupils'.
The premium was designed to target money so that more can be done to help children from disadvantaged backgrounds that are still not doing as well at school as they could, or should do.
The prefix 'Ever' is applied to those pupils who have at some point in their school life been in one of these groups. The number corresponds to the number of years a pupil is eligible for this funding after they are no longer directly entitled to it.
Since its inception it has evolved on numerous occasions to include the difficulties service children face and to recognise that the disadvantages that some pupils experience do not go away after one year.
Numbers of pupils in Lympne School who are eligible for the funding are very low.
Every school needs to decide how it will spend the money apportioned to it and this is described in our document below:
