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.

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.

The following report details how this has been spent during the financial year April 2017 to March 2018:
