Pupil Premium

2017-2018 What is the Pupil Premium? 

The Pupil Premium is a type of grant funding from the Department of Education. The school receives an allocation determined by the number of students who have been in receipt of Free School Meals or who are Looked After Children within the school that year. In 2017-2018 the allocation is £48950. 

The government provides this funding to ensure that students who belong to these groups are not disadvantaged and achieve in line with their peers nationally.

Use of the Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is used at Sale Grammar School to pay for a range of activities and staff within the school that provide direct support and provision for these students.

Examples include:
• Staff providing support related to attendance and welfare
• Systems used to track the progress of all students, including those who are Looked After Children or receive Free School Meals
• Staff providing withdrawal or in-class sessions to support student learning
• Subsidies for trips and visits
• Resources for revision sessions directly linked to final examinations

The impact of the Pupil Premium

By use of the school's monitoring system, which we refer to as ‘Steps2Success', we are able to monitor these groups of students and ensure that their attainment is in line with all other groups in the school and that every child at Sale Grammar School will achieve their maximum potential.

School assessment data shows that those students who are eligible for Pupil Premium support achieved well, particularly in terms of their value added performance. The achievements of those students in Year 11 who were eligible for Pupil Premium are shown below:
