Oak Lodge School, Barnet: Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is provided by central government to support the achievement of students entitled to free school meals, who are looked after by the local authority, or who have a parent currently serving as a member of UK armed forces.

The main barriers to educational achievement for all students at Oak Lodge relate to their special educational needs. However, these barriers can be compounded by the effects of economic disadvantage, impacting in particular on emotional health and wellbeing, with the potential to further affect academic or personal development. The impact of PPG interventions are measured through comparisons of academic progress and personal development with other students at school in Years 7 to 11.

The 2016-2017 Pupil Premium grant of £50,490 was used as follows:

To provide additional pastoral support, student mentoring, family support and school counselling

£39,490

To subsidise costs of educational visits for identified students

£5,500

To purchase additional and personalised resources to support literacy, numeracy and personal/social development

£5,500

PPG has a positive impact on the work of the school, supporting our personalised approach to curriculum planning and delivery, and helping to ensure that all students have the opportunity to make good or outstanding progress.

Progress for 2016-17 was measured for each student in Years 7 - 11 against the CASPA database to judge whether their progress was 'above', 'at', or 'below' the expected progress rate based on students with comparable prior attainment in CASPA's nation-wide data set, with the results shown in the table below:

Analysis of progress data collected by the school provides evidence that due to pupil premium funded interventions, students for whom pupil premium is awarded are just as likely to make or exceed expected progress, and less likely to underachieve.

Pupil Premium Strategy is reviewed annually as part of the school's ongoing review, planning and development procedures. The Pupil Premium Grant allocation for 2017-18 of £51,245 will be spent as follows:

To provide additional pastoral support, student mentoring, family support and school counselling

£39,425

To subsidise costs of educational visits for identified students

£6,000

To purchase additional and personalised resources to support literacy, numeracy and personal/social development

£6,000
