Pupil Premium Funding

Impact of Pupil Premium Funding

St Barnabas & St Philip’s School updated November 2016

The Pupil Premium grant is additional funding allocated to children from low income families who are currently known to be eligible for FSM (Free School Meals), Looked After Children (LAC) and pupils whose parents are members of the British Armed Forces.

This money is used by St Barnabas and St Philip’s to fund a variety of initiatives throughout the school to help ensure that Pupil Premium over come any barriers that may hinder children reaching their full potential, both academically and socially. These could be linked with access and understanding of the curriculum, ability of pupils to participate in the full range of school activities and to access appropriate school uniform. Due to the range of potential barriers we have planned to address these potential barriers by organising a diverse range of intervention strategies aimed at eligible disadvantaged pupils as well as a range of generous subsidises on clubs, trips and school uniform. We will continue to measure the impact of these measures by analysis of the eligible pupils progress and attainment compared to all other pupils nationally using the school’s Raiseonline report. We will also monitor the take up of the subsidies for clubs, trips and school uniform to analyse if it results in more eligible pupils participating in these aspects of school life. We will review this strategy in September 2017.

At St Barnabas & St Philip’s School the Pupil Premium for the 2012-2013 was £48,594, in 2013-2014 it was £64,800, in 2014-2015 it was £86,700, in 2015-206 it was £83,785 and for the current year 2016-17 it is £65,000. The Pupil Premium money is used to ensure all FSM, LAC and Service children are supported in making good progress and achieving a high level of attainment in phonics and KS1 & KS2 SATs. This is carefully monitored and tracked so as to ensure that we achieve our target of all of our Disadvantaged Pupils achieving at higher level compared with all pupils nationally.

THE 'GOLDEN 28' LIST

St Barnabas & St Philip's School has been informed that it is one of the twenty eight schools to have been included in this year's Department of Education 'Golden 28' list.

We are of course delighted that the work of the school has been acknowledged and celebrated nationally and know that this success is due to the efforts of the whole school community. At St Barnabas & St Philip's School we are never complacent and are determined to continue to work hard for all the children who attend our school. 

Below is information from the DfE about this 'Golden 28' list. 

Twenty-eight schools have overcome the odds and achieved the highest levels of progress and achievement for their disadvantaged pupils, analysis by Schools Week reveals. 

Today, the Department for Education released primary performance tables based on the results of this summer’s key stage 2 tests.

But Schools Week decided to highlight the individual schools in which outcomes for disadvantaged pupils were highest.

Just 28 schools – we’ve called them “the golden 28” – out of more than 16,000 met our ambitious standards that included getting every child on free school meals (FSMs) to achieve at least two levels of progress in reading, maths and writing.

The schools also had to achieve an average level of 5b or above, despite having at least 25 per cent of pupils on FSMs. 

Lucy Nutt Principal Lead Adviser - Tri-borough Education Service emailed to say, 'Congratulations! It really is a great recognition of all the hard work that you and your team do for the pupils in your school.'
