Pupil Premium

The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England.

It’s designed to help disadvantaged pupils of all abilities perform better, and close the gap between them and their peers.

The overall objectives in spending our Pupil Premium Grant are:

  • To raise attainment and progress for Pupil Premium students at ASA

  • To narrow the attainment and progress gap between the Pupil Premium and non-Pupil Premium students, in ASA and nationally

  • To improve the attendance of Pupil Premium students at ASA

  • To provide excellent pastoral care and support for our most disadvantaged students

  • To provide counselling support for our most vulnerable learners |

  • To fund extra-curricular opportunities to enhance our Pupil Premium students whole school experience

  • To enable targeted intervention and support for our Pupil Premium students across all year groups

  • To ensure personalised provision is in place for Pupil Premium students giving all students equal access to the curriculum

  • To ensure the best quality of teaching and learning is available day in and day out in the classroom as this has the greatest impact on the overall achievement of Pupil Premium students (please see graph and commentary below):
