Pupil Premium Grants

Fullerton House School have 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 Autism and associated behaviours that challenge.

At around 35%, the numbers 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 attainment of pupils in receipt of Pupil Premium for Reading 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 school has established a clear plan for 2015-2016 focused on increasing the value of Pupil Premium and better meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs . In particular, the school recognises the need to better quantify the success of every pound spent through more rigorous data gathering and action planning based upon collated data. Raising the aspirations, attainment and well-being of our least financially advantaged pupils is at the forefront of these plans.
