Pupil Premium Strategy
Pupil Premium Financial Support
The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged students and close the gap between them and their peers.
“It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM student, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual students within their responsibility.” Source – DfE website
At Lutterworth High School, we have high aspirations and ambitions for our students and we believe that no student should be left behind. We strongly believe that it is not about where you come from but your passion and thirst for knowledge, and your dedication and commitment to learning that make the difference between success and failure.
We are determined to ensure that our students are given every chance to realise their full potential. Pupil premium funding, along with allocations made from the school’s own budget will help ensure this money is spent to maximum effect to ensure quality-first teaching and learning.
Our pupil premium money is also used to provide a range of additional support for our students and these interventions, along with quality first teaching are having a positive impact on students’ progress, outcomes and self-belief.
Through targeted interventions we are working hard to eliminate barriers to learning and progress. One of the schools aims is to ensure that ALL groups of students make good progress in order to reach age related expectations as they move through the school.

Our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Co-ordinator (SENDCo) liaises closely with all staff and other external agencies in order to support our most vulnerable students and those who have additional needs. Our SENDCo leads a team of very experienced Learning Support Assistants (LSAs), who work with class teachers to ensure that work is differentiated and accessible for all of our students. The parents of those students with an Individual Educational Plan (IEP) or Statement of Educational Need are invited into school frequently and we are available to the parents of any child who feels that support may be needed.
If a student has special educational needs, then we will most likely have that information from the Primary School.
Some children have special needs that we don’t know about. If you have any concerns about your child please contact the SENDCo. In turn, if we are concerned we will contact you.
Room E6 in the English base is available for use by students at Break and Lunchtimes. Room E7 (Computer Room) is available for Homework help at Lunchtimes.
