Pupil Premium

The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers.

If a child is eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point over the past 6 years or has been looked after for one day or more (Child Looked After) the school receives an amount per head within their budget. This money is used to support the achievement of that child and ensure they are given the same opportunities as every other student at Robert Barclay Academy. A provision is also made for children who have a parent in the armed services. The allocation for Pupil Premium in 2017 - 18 is £1320 per child, for Looked After Children the allocation is £1900 and for children of Service Personnel the allocation is £300.

Robert Barclay Academy is committed to ensuring maximum progress for all groups of children and strives to close any gaps in achievement.  RBA utilises the funding to provide students with a variety of support, to name a few; aspiration intervention, digital technology, early years’ intervention, homework support, mastery learning, mentoring and one to one tuition.

We have a clear, strategic approach to the use of specific Pupil Premium funding and plans are integrated into wider school support and improvement systems. The schools action plan is available to view on the school webpage.

These actions are monitored and evaluated regularly. An in depth data analysis ensures that the correct support and strategies are identified to maximise progress. Strong leadership systems ensure that Pupil Premium funding has a positive impact. All matters relating to the Pupil Premium are reported back to the Governing body, ensuring that the school is held to account for the impact of spending. In our Pupil Premium plan, we aim to focus on identifying those children who are eligible for the Pupil Premium, providing targeted support, finding evidence to guide where support is most needed and engaging with the students and parents to provide equal opportunities to disadvantaged children. RBA is particularly proud of the changing attitudes and the improvement of PP attendance across the academy. Our PP attendance is nearly 2% greater than the national average for PP students. High attendance for PP students is our key goal at RBA; since if students are in school then they are learning and making progress.
