Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium

There is an expectation of what students are entitled to and will receive within the Shuttleworth community.

There will be a focus on achievement, attainment, SMSC, experiences, ambition, opportunities.



Closing the Gap: “Narrowing the attainment gap between groups and individuals to ensure all pupils attain well and make the expected levels of progress”.

Intervention: “The strategies and methods used to narrow the gap between identified target groups and individuals to ensure all pupils attain well and make the expected levels of progress.”

Develop a culture for success: Closing the gaps is everyone’s responsibility at all levels of the school. It also involves family and community. This is in-line with the College’s values and motto. We need to capture and share what works well.


At Shuttleworth College we recognise the importance of ensuring all pupils whatever their background or circumstance, are provided with a quality and relevant education. This will ensure that all pupils are equipped with the knowledge and skills they will need to succeed in life beyond school.

Pupil Premium (PP) funding was introduced in April 2011 and is additional monies that the government gives to schools for each pupil on roll where they are deemed to be disadvantaged. Funding of £935 per pupil is allocated to those deemed to be from low income families who are registered for Free School meals, or have been at any point in the last six years, together with pupils who have been in care continuously for six months or more who receive £1,900. In addition to this, students from Service Families are allocated £300 each.

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives additional funding of £500 for each year 7 student who did not achieve at least level 4 in reading and/or maths at the end of key stage 2 in order to provide effective and appropriate intervention to help close the literacy and numeracy gap of these children.

In July of 2016, 44.7% of the Shuttleworth students were disadvantaged. There were 306 Pupil Premium students in total out of 685. In the academic year 2016-17 numbers are as follows (allowing for possible variation):

2016-17 PP v numbers on roll %
Year 7 60/137 43.8%
Year 8 56/125 44.8%
Year 9 73/111 65.8%
Year 10 64/162 39.5%
Year 11 51/151 33.8%
TOTAL 304/686 44.3%

The 4 cornerstones of teaching and learning- planning, teaching, assessment and intervention,  needs to ensure effective and appropriate strategies and activities are in place on a daily basis to help close the achievement gap and meet the needs of all pupils.

The quality of teaching and learning has improved over the last two years with the number of pupils making good progress in lessons increasing. There needs to be a clear focus on Closing the Gap pupils in the planning and delivery of all lessons to ensure that learning meets the needs and accelerates the progress of all pupils. Timely and appropriate interventions also need to be put in place, within and beyond the classroom, to ensure the achievement gap is narrowed rapidly.

The table below indicates attainment trends since 2014 using key performance measures. Achievement has improved in most areas with significant improvements expected in 2016. Provision audits will ensure strategies and spending is appropriate and will be modified as required. For example, an increased focus on maths outcomes to improve levels of progress; more work to reduce the gaps that this overall improvement has created; maintaining the improvements in Progress 8 etc.
