Pupil Premium

  • The Lighthouse School may apply for LAC Pupil Premium for any child placed in care, at the discretion of their home Authority. Schools are required to publish online information about how the premium is used.
  • For Looked After Children the Pupil Premium is held by the Virtual School Headteacher. Based on the outcome of the PEP, a decision is made in relation to any interventions to be implemented by the school. Until receipt of the pupil premium the Lighthouse School will be able to undertake individual interventions which form part of the core education provision only.
  • The LAC Pupil Premium Grant for 2018-19 is £2,300 per student eligible. This has been used directly to provide support, therapy or alternative curriculum activity in line with their needs, or to develop opportunities of special interest.
