Pupil Premium and Y7 Catch-up Premium
Academic Year 2016-17


Overview of the school

Total number of students on roll at September 2016 is 1660

Impact of Pupil Premium Spending 2016-2017

Increased proportion of students achieving Grade 4 or higher in GCSE English and Maths from 42% to 64% which is significantly above national.

We have successfully closed the gap between Pupil Premium and non-Pupil Premium students achieving Grade 4 or higher in GCSE English and Maths.

0% of Pupil Premium students who are Not in Education, Employment or Training (NEET), the national average for all pupils is around 10% annually, this means that 100% of a=our Pupil Premium students have progressed into further Education, Employment or Training.

40% of our Pupil Premium students achieved strong Grade 5 or higher passes in English and Maths., which we expect to be significantly higher than nationally.

Many fewer exclusions of pupil premium students than nationally across all of the categories.

Better teaching for Pupil Premium students in Years 7-13 to help them make better progress towards examination success.

Objectives in Spending PPG

• To narrow the gap in terms of attainment for students eligible for PPG or CPG
• To increase the rates of progress for students eligible for PPG or CPG.

At Canon Slade, we strive to improve the progress and attainment of all our pupils and believe in
treating all pupils inclusively; we do not treat any pupil differently based on their eligibility
for free school meals or family background. As such, we have used the Pupil Premium
funding in a number of different ways, as outlined in this document. The grant has been
used to either expand existing initiatives or to fund new strategies to provide support,
intervention and enrichment activities.
We prioritise:
Free School Meal (FSM) and looked after children (LAC) and other vulnerable pupils
who are underachieving or at risk of underachieving at KS4 and KS3
