Pupil Premium

 

 

East London Independent School (ELIS) has used Pupil Premium spending to improve the outcomes of eligible pupils. Over the last year it has been used flexibly to suit the nature of the school as a provision for pupils with SEMH and ASC.
Apart from five LAC pupils (stated below), there is currently no specific funding for any others as the Local Authorities have informed us this is included in our contracted fees.
For academic year 2016/17 the majority of pupils in receipt of Pupil Premium at our school is significantly above the national average. Overall, there is no significant difference between the attainment, behaviour and attendance of pupils in receipt of Pupil Premium and those who do not receive this funding. There is a small gap between the attainments of pupils in receipt of Pupil Premium for Reading and those without. Due to the comparable needs of both groups it is inevitable that many of the Pupil Premium initiatives will be beneficial at a whole school level.
For the financial year running from April 2016 to March 2017, East London Independent School was allocated £7500 for five LAC pupils – the following report details how this has been spent:
