Lincoln, A Priory Academy is committed to raising the academic standards of all students. As a school, we receive Pupil Premium funding from the government to help us in our ambition to ensure every student is successful and to ensure they make a positive contribution to the life of the academy.
The government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school and academy funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.
The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools and academies to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’).
Schools and academies also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, and for children of service personnel.
