Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Report 2016

All schools receive additional income called the Pupil Premium (PP). This money is allocated by the Government to help schools support children from low income families and children in care. The amount of additional funding schools receive is based on the number of children who are entitled to receive free school meals* or are looked after children.

(*Since September 2012 this includes children who have received free school meals any time over the past six years.)

Nationally, PP pupils and looked after children achieve less compared to other students. For example, there is a large gap in the attainment of PP and non PP in terms of the percentage who achieve 5A*-C including English and Maths. Pupil Premium money has been given to help schools close the gap.

What has the impact been so far?

We monitor the progress of all our students throughout their school life, and track specific groups of students such as Pupil Premium carefully to ensure that intervention support and challenge is provided to those who need it.

Quality support is given to our PP students to ensure that they are enabled to achieve outcomes which reflect their ability. PP students are well supported in the run up to examinations and have excellent attendance for all exams.

Our PP students make excellent progress. We have been identified in 2014 as being in the 100 top performing schools in terms of the progress that our PP students make between Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 4.
