High School

At Kingsbury High School we are determined that our students’ financial circumstances will not be a barrier to their success and to getting the most from what our school has to offer.

Kingsbury High School Pupil Premium Report 2017 - 2018

Introduced in 2011, the Pupil Premium is a sum of money given to schools each year by the Government to improve the attainment of disadvantaged children. This is based on research showing that children from lower income families perform less well at school than their peers. Often, children who are attract Pupil Premium funding to schools face challenges such as poor language and communication skills, less family support, lack of confidence and issues with attendance and punctuality. The Pupil Premium is intended to directly benefit the children who are eligible, helping to narrow the gap between them and their classmates. We measure the impact of our Pupil Premium spend primarily through progress data, collected through various assessments throughout the year.  It is the culmination of all our strategies that we measure, not necessarily each individual intervention. 

At Kingsbury High School, we want our Pupil Premium funding to:

  • Develop strategies to enable staff to know and understand the background of each individual pupil.
  • Remove barriers to learning for individuals and groups of pupils.
  • Build the capacity and resilience in pupils to enable them to build their own futures.
  • Ensure that our students have positive mental health and wellbeing.
  • Give every student the opportunity to access all pathways into the world of work, education and training.

In the academic year 2017 – 2018, we received a total of £583,000 for our Pupil Premium students. Below is a breakdown of how we spent our funding and the intended impact. This year, according to the impact our provision has had, we have planned accordingly for our students to ensure the best use of this funding.
