Pupil Premium

Our aim is:

  • To raise and support the attainment of students from low income families in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM) or at any point in the last 6 years (referred to as Ever 6 FSM) in order to address any underlying inequalities.
  • To provide financial support for students from low income families in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM) or at any point in the last 6 years (referred to as Ever 6 FSM) in order to address any underlying inequalities.
  • To ensure students are not disadvantaged in any way in school due to financial constraints.
  • To provide pastoral support for students from service families.

Expected Results

  • Improve the levels of attainment and progress for all qualifying students.
  • To ease the financial burden of low income families and ensure students have equal access to educational visits, resources and other educational opportunities.


  • Ever 6 FSM and  Ever 6 Service –Students recorded in the January 2020 school census who are known to have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) or eligible for service child premium in any of the previous 6 years (i.e. since summer 2014), as well as those first known to be eligible at January 2020. To be eligible for FSMs a child or their parent/carer must be in receipt of a qualifying benefit. Universal Credit, which is being gradually rolled out across Great Britain, replaces many of these qualifying benefits (and some others) with a single payment.
  • Children adopted from care or who have left care – students recorded in the January 2020 school census who were looked after by the Local Authority immediately before being adopted, or who left authority care on a special guardianship order or child arrangements order (previously residence order)

Pupil Premium Allocation

Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. The Pupil Premium enables a range of interventions, support and enrichment activities to be funded and to provide the maximum impact on learning for students entitled to funding.

The Pupil Premium is allocated for:

  • children from low-income families who are currently eligible for Free School Meals (FSM)
  • children who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as Ever6)
  • children who have been looked after by the local authority (LAC)


  • The number of students presented who are eligible for FSM in the academic year 2019/20 is 18 confirmed.
  • 2020/21 indicative allocation is £17,165.  Actual 2020/21 allocation will be based on January 2020 census data and Free School Meals (FSM) history since 2014. This allocation may change once the January 2020 census has taken place and may be carried forward to future financial years.

PPG Attainment Data for 2019/20 

2019/20 17 students PPG students, 4 identified in need-to-catch up group by internal tracking

2020 No national performance data for GCSEs

2019 Progress 8 score whole school +1.17

2019 Progress 8 Score for two disadvantaged students was 1.80

Attainment and progress of disadvantaged students is very closely monitored on an individual basis as there are too few to be a statistically significant group.  The school and governors will continue to monitor and review the impact on spending and raising the educational achievements of students eligible to receive PPG.


Despite the disrupted academic year due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the progress data for students eligible for PPG shows that participation in remote learning platforms, effort and progress   was overall very good. This is in line with participation levels and attainment of students not receiving PPG in their respective cohorts. Students are carefully tracked and monitored to ensure that key educational targets are met for each individual student.  Students are well supported financially to experience a wide range of educational visits and obtain essential learning resources. Prior to lockdown students were funded to attend study skills workshops, visit museums and attend modern foreign language plays and events.  Year 10 students participated in remote work experience modules. Experiences and opportunities that help to build confidence and broaden their socio-cultural experiences and increase their understanding of the broad curriculum available at Kendrick School. With additional financial support, students were also able to pursue on-line extra-curricular activities e.g. music lessons, and participate in Combined Cadet Force (CCF).

Kendrick School will continue to use the PPG in line with its policy for 2020/21
