Pupil Premium at Sir John Lawes

Pupil Premium strategy document 2020-21

Background

The government first introduced the Pupil Premium in April 2011. This additional funding was allocated to the school to spend on children from low-income families who were known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings and children in Local Authority Care. Subsequently the eligibility criteria expanded to include (i) all students who had been in receipt of Free School Meals at any time over the previous six years (FSM), (ii) all Children Looked After (CLA) who are in care of, or provided with accommodation by, the local authority and (iii) children who have ceased to be looked after by a local authority in England and Wales because of adoption, a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order or a residence order. In addition children of parents in the armed services (Service Child) attract funding at a rate of £300 per student for any child who was eligible for the premium at any point since 2011.

Academies and schools can select how best to deploy these extra resources.

Sir John Lawes School

At Sir John Lawes School staff and governors are committed to ensuring that every student achieves her or his personal best and is able to move onto university, an apprenticeship or employment successfully. All of our work with students is underpinned by the Sir John Lawes ACE (Achievement, Care and Excellence)

Our work is informed by some of the research on how best to support students in receipt of pupil premium funding such as the ‘Education Endowment fund Teaching Toolkit’ and reports such as ‘Supporting the attainment of disadvantaged pupils: articulating success and good practice’ (DFE:2015).

Links to these two sources of information can be found below:-

Education Endowment fund Teaching Toolkit

‘Supporting the attainment of disadvantaged pupils: articulating success and good practice’ (DFE: 2015).

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/supporting-the-attainment-of-disadvantaged-pupils

Monitoring and Impact

We monitor the progress of students in receipt of pupil premium funding through within-year data analysis, HIT (High Impact Team) meetings, faculty and pastoral reviews and other self-evaluation processes such as learning walks and work scrutiny.  There is a link governor for Pupil Premium. As well as scrutinising data we use anonymised case studies to document the impact of interventions on an individual student.
