Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Impact Statement 2017-18



LIPA Primary School is a two form entry primary school in city centre, Liverpool. Our school opened in September 2014 with two Reception classes. As of September 2017, we have Reception through to Year 3 and we will grow with another year group each year until we become full in September 2020.


We are committed to raising the achievement of all pupils and of closing the attainment gap for disadvantaged pupils. We aim to create an environment where all our pupils believe that they can achieve well and where they feel supported to do so.


Last year, our pupil premium funding was spent in a range of ways that have had a positive impact on not only the academic achievements but also the emotional wellbeing of those children in receipt of this funding (please see impact statement for 2016/17)

*This amount reflects children who are currently in years 1-3 who were entitled to a free school meal at the Spring Census point 2017. However, unlike established schools who benefit from the Ever 6 model, we are not yet in this position but still have to provide for children who have started with us who are entitled to a free school meal since February 2017 and also children in years 1-3 whose situation may have changed and are now entitled to a free school meal.

Barriers to Learning

Some of the barriers to learning which affect our children include the areas identified below.  Provision for children is considered on an individual basis and knowledge of these barriers can help ensure that we fully support children's needs.


* learning difficulties – in acquiring basic skills in school

* emotional and social difficulties – making friends or relating to adults or behaving properly in school, low

   self esteem
* specific learning difficulty – with reading, writing, number work or understanding information

* sensory or physical needs - such as hearing or visual impairment, which might affect them in school

* medical or health conditions – which may slow down a child’s progress and/or involves treatment that

   affects his or her education.
