The Pupil Premium Grant is allocated to schools and academies from April to March (financial year). Ralph Sadleir School is an Academy Trust and therefore its financial year runs from September to August running parallel to the academic year.
In the financial year 2013 – 14, we received the following funding for each pupil registered as eligible for Free School Meals at any point in the last six years:
- £900 for primary-aged pupils (KS2)
- £900 for secondary-aged pupils (KS3)

Attainment and Progress
This a report looking at the attainment and progress made by the Pupil Premium (PP) pupils leaving Ralph Sadleir School at the end of Year 8 in July 2014 compared with the Non- Pupil Premium (Non-PP) pupils.
There were 8 pupils out of 80 (10%) who were identified as being pupil premium.
Their average attainment (APS) when compared with their predicted attainment which was projected through their CATs tests were as follows:
|Subject||Group of Pupils||APS||CAT APS Prediction||Matched APS||Difference with prediction|
|English||PP||36.8||37.3||6/8 pupils were in the school to take the CATs. |
Their APS was 37.7
|Non PP||36.8||35.4||66/72 pupils were in the school to take the CATs. |
Their APS was 37.3
|Maths||PP||42.5||43.7||6/8 pupils were in the school to take the CATs. |
Their APS was 44.7
|Non PP||40.5||40.8||66/72 pupils were in the school to take the CATS. |
Their APS was 41.4
As we can see both PP and Non-PP pupil groups outperformed their predicted APS in both English and Maths. It also needs to be remembered that the CAT prediction is aimed at the end of KS3 which is at the end of Yr 9, whereas we look at a condensed KS3 teaching it in 2 years instead of 3.
Looking at the progress made by the children through their time at school.
The first table compares the progress made by the PP pupils against the Non-PP pupils from when they joined the school at the September of Yr 5 until they left in the Summer of Yr 8.
|Subject||Group of Pupils||APS Baseline Yr5||Exit APS Summer Yr8||APS of those pupils who were in the school from Yr5 to Yr8||Progress made by the matched pupils|
|Non PP||21.9||36.8||36.8 |
|Non PP||19.9||40.5||41.0 |
The progress made by both groups is fairly similar with the PP pupils making slightly more progress. Both groups make over 2 levels of progress in English during their time in the school. In Maths both groups make over 3 levels progress which is very good. Both of these levels of progress are above what is expected in a 4 year period.
The next table looks at the progress made by both groups of pupils since their KS2 SATs until they left the school at the end of Yr 8.
|Subject||Group of Pupils||APS KS2 Test||Exit APS Summer Yr8||APS of those pupils who were in the school from Yr5 to Yr8||Progress made by the matched pupils|
|Non PP||28.0||36.8||37.4 |
|Non PP||28.7||40.5||41.0 |
Again, we can see that in the 2 year period since the children took their SATs both groups of children have made similar points progress. In English they have progressed by 1½ levels whereas in maths they have made 2 levels progress. Both of these are above expected progress in 2 years.
