Pupil Premium Information ( updated April 2017)

Pupil Premium is additional money allocated to schools by the government to support pupils from low-income families. The aim is to narrow the disadvantaged gap by addressing inequalities and raising achievement of this particular cohort of pupils.  

The pupils who attract this funding are those who have free school meals and/or have done so in the last six years, are children of service families or are 'Looked After Children'.  

At St. Luke's, Pupil Premium children are closely monitored and their needs met in a variety of ways. Successful and targeted interventions have included smaller class sizes, personalised learning in the form of precision teaching, reading interventions and learning mentors.

Our ongoing aim is to ensure that all of our pupils, including disadvantaged pupils are supported to achieve their potential in line with and/or above national expectations whilst they are at St. Luke’s. We encourage participation academically as well as pastorally and regularly plan enrichment activities and creative curriculum experiences to raise pupils’ aspirations and expectations of self.

We monitor the impact through our end of year results, pupil interviews, case studies, pupil dialogues, roles in school and moderation of provision against national outcomes. We review pupil premium achievement and progress regularly and feedback outcomes to our Academic Trust and Local Governing Body in July and September.  

Over the last four years, all of our pupil premium chn have reached national or made their expected progress.

The main barriers to learning at St. Luke’s are low starting points and limited communication, literacy and language skills including limited awareness of the richness of language and vocabulary choices available, a limited reading experience and or lifetime experiences; like trips away, visits to the theatre, museums, reading opportunities and resources - as well as low expectations of self.

Many of our disadvantaged families also struggle emotionally and their welfare needs and involvement with other agencies can have a knock on effect on pupils’ experiences of school and wider school life. To support pupils we run catch up programmes, target children who are experiencing difficulty in their learning but also socially and emotionally, we offer free after school clubs, residential trips, theatre visits, sports occasions, we subsidise uniform and provide free winter uniform to children in need, to name but a few

"The school has used the pupil premium funding to target support for groups of pupils who may be falling behind in their work. Consequently, the gap between the attainment of pupils eligible for pupil premium funding and that of their peers narrowed in 2013; they are approximately one term behind in English and mathematics".
