Pupil Premium is the name of the fund given directly to schools and academies to support pupils who receive free school meals, who are in public care or young people whose parents are in the armed forces. In 2019/20 and 2020/21 all schools/academies received up to £935 for each pupil covered by the Pupil Premium. Every school is required to report on how it intends to spend the Pupil Premium grant for the current academic year and how it was spent in previous years. Each school has to report the impact of the spending. Please find below the pupil premium funding information required to be published.
The 2021/22 Pupil Premium grant allocation to Malet Lambert is £303,690.
Impact of the pupil premium is measured in a wide range of ways:
On a termly basis in line with progress data rounds and the planned end dates of specific projects.
Pupil premium case studies are regularly written and reviewed.
Teaching staff produce termly evaluation reports for any pupil premium funding allocated to them for specific and measurable projects. This includes but is not limited to the use of pupil and parent voice, progress data analysis and behaviour data tracking.
A full and detailed report including evaluations is produces by the assistant Headteacher lead for pupil premium, which accounts for the full pupil premium funding allocation. This is produced with collaboration and shared with the senior leadership team and the governors as a scheduled meeting.
Reviews of the impact of pupil premium occur at leas termly and a full review report is written after the summer term, following a full analysis of examination results.
