Financial Information

Lincolnshire Wolds Federation is managed by Lincolnshire Wolds Community Trust (LWCT).   Click here to view the financial policies, Annual Review and Statements for the Trust.

As a school we are entitled to additional government funding:


Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools including specialist academies, in addition to main school funding, to help bridge the gap between children eligible for free school meals and their peers.

It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent since they are best placed to access what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.  However they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families. 

In the 2017 to 2018 financial year, schools will receive the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years:

  • £1,320 for pupils in reception year to year 6
  • £935 for pupils in year 7 to year 11

Schools will also receive £1,900 for each pupil identified in the spring school census as having left local-authority care because of one of the following:

  • Adoption
  • A special guardianship order
  • A child arrangements order
  • A residence order

Year 7 Catch Up

The Government believes that by investing specific funding to identified cohorts of learners there will be a significant narrowing of the gap between sub groups. In response to Government thinking there is now a separate allocation of funding called the catch-up premium.

Schools will receive an additional premium of £500 for each Year 7 pupil who has not achieved at least level 4 in reading and/or maths (maximum £500 per pupil) at Key Stage 2. 

The money is used by the Lincolnshire Wolds Federation to deliver:

  • additional or intensive support in small groups, through the use of additional learning support staff
  • external services and materials

Sports Premium

The Department for Education (DfE) is allocating funds to schools on improving physical education (PE) and sport within the primary phase. Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6.

The Lincolnshire Wolds Federation will receive £16,000 per school plus £5 per primary aged student. 

  • St Bernard’s: £16,000 + £270 = £16,270
  • St Lawrence: £16,000 + £470 = £16,470

Our funding is being used to:

  • Work with a coaching company, with whom we have had a relationship with for some time, to run weekly training programmes in PE / physical activities with the students. The coaches work alongside our staff during these sessions to pass on the skills and confidence to then take these sessions themselves. This type of specialised training will have a lasting, long-term impact on sport and PE / physical teaching within the Federation. Good practice is then shared between all members of the teaching team
  • Introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport
  • Ensure all students access some form of physical activity
  • Purchase resources to support the activities for both inside and outside ‘games’
  • We are also working with the company in developing ‘inter school’ game opportunities

LWCT and LWF Academy Advocates acknowledge the beneficial impact of quality sports provision within our balanced curriculum, on-going professional development and the promotion of a healthy lifestyle to our students. As such we are also supporting the coaching within the wider students groups of the Federation, outside of this funding.
