Understanding Pupil Premium Activities Expenditure F.S.M. Policy

As a school we received £233,533 for 2012/2013 from central government to be used to support the progress of disadvantaged children, such as those with free school meals, looked after children, and children of service families. The definition of free school meal children includes those who are currently claiming free school meals plus those who have been on the register for the previous 6 years.

At Light Hall School, this initiative has been used to:

  1. Appoint a Coordinator to oversee the initiative and to ensure that it has positive impact on our children. He works with such children, line managers and other relevant staff and projects.
  2. Appoint a member of staff to support attendance, work with families and work individually with children.
  3. Appoint a learning resource manager and fund projects aimed at maximising learning for disadvantaged children. Projects include improving literacy and e-learning opportunities for targeted children.
  4. Appoint a student achievement manager to help pupils with homework & personalised tuition.
  5. Support disadvantaged children with the cost of educational extras such as, school trips, uniform and equipment.
  6. Providing training for staff on maximising the progress of disadvantaged children.

The School is open and available to students from 8.15 am onwards on the understanding that the official time of commencement is 8.45 am and that before that time no responsibility for the safety of students can be accepted in the event of an accident. (Changing circumstances may make it necessary to amend these times).

The continuous school day does not permit students to leave the premises at mid-day. A cafeteria provides hot and cold snacks for sale mid-morning, and snacks and hot meals are also available during the lunch break. It runs on a pre-payment cashless card system. Students may bring their own packed lunch and eat it on the premises.

Ofsted report June 2013 - Main findings

Download the full Ofsted report
pdf formatOFSTED

"Students achieve well, particularly in mathematics. They enjoy their learning and are keen to do well. Rates of progress are improving in English and science.
Most teaching is good, and it is sometimes outstanding. In lessons, teachers generally adapt tasks in line with students’ individual needs and ability levels, and provide a good balance of challenge and support.
Teachers are promoting students’ key literacy and numeracy skills increasingly well across different subjects.
Students’ behaviour is good and often exemplary. They say that they feel safe, bullying is rare and adults support them well. They are polite and thoughtful of others.
The inspirational headteacher is well supported by a strong senior team and highly effective governors. They have been rigorous in their drive to improve the quality of teaching and the impact is now being seen in rising achievement, particularly in English and science. They show an outstanding capacity to improve the school further."
