Pupil Premium Grant

Pupil Premium Grant | Studley High SchoolIn 2011-12 the Government launched its Pupil Premium funding. This money is given to schools based on the numbers of pupils in the school who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM). From 2012-13, it was expanded to include all children who have been eligible for FSM within the last 6 years.

At Totley All Saints, we are completely committed to the ideal of ‘every child matters’ & are driven by our values that focus on enhancing pupil achievement & well being irrespective of their personal circumstances. In short, we want ALL of our children to do well & to thrive in their learning!


We seek to meet the needs of all of our pupils from through careful analysis of progress data on a termly basis & design intervention strategies where necessary to meet each pupil’s needs. Whilst our school has traditionally received a low amount, Pupil Premium funding gives a method of further supporting some of our more disadvantaged pupils in order that we can ‘close the gap’ & ensure that they get the very best advantage from their time with us.


This year, our Pupil Premium allocation for 2020-21 is £23,795.00. This has been spent on funding: the salary of a Higher Level Teaching Assistant for two days with a specific timetable of 1 to 1 & group support with those pupils eligible for Pupil Premium funding (£10,207.00); refurbishing the school library & buying Reading & Phonics resources (£11,600.00); providing enrichment opportunities for Pupil Premium pupils (£1000.00) & providing targeted participation in after school clubs / Saturday morning provision run by a L3TA in order to give wider opportunities & experiences as well as equality of access to PP children (£988.00).


Last year, our Pupil Premium allocation for 2019-20 was £30,960. This has been spent on funding: the full time salary of a Higher Level Teaching Assistant with a specific timetable of 1 to 1 & group support with those pupils eligible for Pupil Premium funding (£27,489.00); providing enrichment opportunities for Pupil Premium children (£2000.00) & providing high needs support for children who are Pupil Premium pupils as well as have Special Educational Needs (£1,471.00).


Impact (See Pupil Premium Impact Report 2020-21 for full details):

  • The outcomes of FSM pupils vary at different times depending on the children & their individual needs. Sometimes, our FSM children appear in multiple pupil groups such as SEND (Special Educational Needs & Disabilities) which then affects their academic out-comes.
  • Where FSM pupils do not have Special Educational Needs & Disabilities, they normally attain within the expected range or above in comparison to the national average.
  • Most of our FSM pupils make good to outstanding progress.
  • FSM pupils also show increased confidence as a result of targeted interventions, greater levels of support or access to extra-curricular activities.
