The Ever6 funding will remain at £935 per student, the Service grant is £300 per student and the looked after and adopted from care grant is £1900 per student. This year we will receive £286,730 to support these students.

The Pupil Premium is grant funding and is in addition to the School’s Delegated Budget.  It is allocated to children from low-income families, service children and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months.  Pupil Premium Funding is used to raise attainment, promote social skills, independent learning and positive behaviour in order to increase pupil progress.


At Richard Lander School we are directing the funding to support the following planned interventions:

•    TLR for Leadership and Management – to cover additional responsibilities organising and overseeing effective use of the pupil premium funds school wide
•    Extra Staffing English and Maths – to provide extra support during lessons in reduced size groupings
•    Extra Specialist Support for English and Maths – to allow for HLTA support and focus groups within standard curriculum time
•    Home tuition and 1:1/small group support – external tutors employed to give focussed support to individual students
•    Revision programmes – specific sessions delivered outside of the normal curriculum dedicated to prepare students for exam entry
•    College courses – personalised learning through courses delivered through local colleges
•    Online Support – subject specific specialist support delivered through online support
•    Pastoral  Support – proportion of costs to provide dedicated support and towards a full time attendance officer
•    Revision Guides and Workbooks – subject specific resources supplied to support students in independent learning
•    Special Assistance fund - to provide financial support enabling students to access trips, curriculum enrichment, uniform fund etc.

Impact

In 2016 the proportion of disadvantaged students gaining a good pass in English and maths rose by almost 5%. The proportion gaining 5+ A*-C grades, including English and maths rose by almost 10%. Analysis of other measures shows that disadvantaged students have performed better than the previous year in many headline measures.
We continue to work on the attendance of pupil premium students with the assistance of our dedicated attendance officer. On average disadvantaged student attendance is 4% lower than others.
