Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium

In April 2011 the Government introduced the Pupil Premium. It is additional money allocated to schools for the benefit of children from low-income families who are registered for free school meals (FSM), for children who have been ‘looked after’ (LAC) for more than six months and for children from families in the armed forces (SC). In April 2012, the Pupil Premium was extended to include children who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years. It applies to all eligible children between Reception class and Y11. It is targeted at pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds to ensure that they benefit from the same opportunities as their peers.

  • The Pupil Premium Grant for 2016- 2017 is £935 per eligible pupil.
  • The Service Children grant for 2016- 2017 is £300 per eligible pupil.

The figures in the Pupil Premium Report below includes both of these elements.

2015-2016 Disadvantaged Performance

There were nineteen Year 11 disadvantaged pupils. Progress for these pupils is now measured by an average of their individual Progress 8 scores. Progress 8 scores show the progress a pupil makes from the end of primary school to the end of secondary school. Pupils’ results are compared to the actual achievements of other pupils with the same prior attainment.

For comparison purposes the following data, shows both old and new measures. Table 1 shows that the figures for both expected progress of English and Maths of disadvantaged pupils against their peers and Table 2 the in school gaps. The Progress 8 score for disadvantaged pupils is -0.7. For Maths it is -1 and English -0.7. This is concerning and the academy is now working tirelessly to ensure this improves.
