Pupil Premium

PUPIL PREMIUM – STATUTORY INFORMATION

Pupil premium is additional funding provided by the Government to enhance the education of key groups. It is paid to schools for each student who:

  • Is recorded as being eligible for Free School Meals in the last 6 years (Ever6 FSM)
  • Is looked after (CLA)
  • Is a Service Child; has a parent serving in the armed forces (SC).

For the Financial Year 2016-17 the school received £67,000.

Aim

At Tarporley High School and Sixth Form College we are committed to supporting all our students to achieve their personal best and to overcome barriers to learning. For students from groups who are vulnerable to underachievement, we endeavour, where possible, to ensure they meet or exceed their expected progress and attainment and achieve at least as well as their peers. This is so we maximise the life choices that these students have as they move on to the next stage in their development either in the workplace, at college, or within a Sixth Form environment.

Closing THE Gap AND Diminishing Differences

At Tarporley High School & Sixth Form College, we have a whole school commitment to diminishing differences in achievement between students for whom the school is in receipt of Pupil Premium and their peers. This whole school plan is now in its seventh year and outcomes clearly indicate that the gap is closed although we continue to work hard to maintain excellent outcomes.

Whole School Priority

In pursuit of our aim to diminish differences and close the gap, in 2010, governors set as a whole school priority “Narrowing the Gap”, specifically the gap in educational attainment that has been identified nationally and locally between this group of children and young people and their peers.

The Pupil Premium provides an additional resource to support this priority. We are required to publish a statement of how the Pupil Premium is spent, which follows:

Pupil Premium Statement

In 2016-17, the Pupil Premium was spent in creative and practical ways to support entitled students in school and to provide them with opportunities that may not always have been available to them. At Tarporley, this funding is specifically targeted at the Pupil Premium group of students.  As appropriate, funding was used to provide:

  • Teaching Assistant led small group work
  • 1:1 Teaching Assistant support
  • Targeted literacy and numeracy support.

In addition: Tarporley High School & Sixth Form College uses Pupil Premium Funding to provide the following levels of support. This schedule is reviewed annually to ensure the funding is spent effectively and therefore this provision may change.
