As a school, we received £364,199 for the 2018/19 academic year (£363,928 for 2017/18) 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.  Click here for information on free school meals.

At Light Hall School, this initiative and funding has been used to

  1. Provide a specialist member of staff to support attendance, work with families and work individually with children.  Light Hall School now has their own Education and Welfare Officer and this is having a positive impact on attendance.
  2. Provide a range of whole school software to enhance pupil premium students’ learning.
  3. Support disadvantaged children with the cost of educational extras such as school trips, uniform and equipment.
  4. Providing training for staff on maximising the progress of disadvantaged children.

For the 2019/20 academic year, the school has a budgeted spend of £349,080.  This figure is based on the Solihull MBC figure, agreed & signed off by Light Hall Governors in June 2019.
