Pupil Premium

Statement on Pupil Premium Provision
In April 2011 the Government introduced the Pupil Premium Grant. The purpose of this funding is to enable schools to meet the needs of children from low income families and to support them in meeting academic targets. Schools are free to decide how this funding is spent. Regents Park Community College ensures everyone achieves more than they ever thought possible by:
• Maximising academic success for all through the relentless pursuit of excellent teaching and learning
• Understanding and caring fully for each individual through the continuous development of outstanding relationships for learning
• Working in partnership with parents/carers and our community to achieve excellence for all

Strategy for Pupil Premium (PP) Grant 2017/18
For the current academic year, we have received £219,725 in respect of the Pupil Premium Grant. The main barriers our P.P students may face are:
• Some come from families with low aspirations
• Some families are reluctant to accept support to help raise students aspirations
• The school has a traditional uniform with high expectations of compliance and some families may struggle to purchase uniform
• The school has a high number of SEND students that are also P.P students

Students entitled to Pupil Premium funding at RPCC are supported with the following strategies:
• One to one tuition or small group work including revision and breakfast clubs for Year 11 students
• Pastoral, learning and behaviour support
• Alternative and flexible curriculum provision
• Parent support advisor
• Counselling services
• Mentoring schemes
• Access to curriculum visits and enrichment activities, these activities are sometimes offered subsidised
• Assess to after school clubs
• Subsidised music tuition
• Additional time set aside for tracking
• Support with uniform and PE kit
• Staff training around effective feedback/guidance
• Academic mentoring
• Aspirational mentoring
• For our Year 11 students revision guides are purchased to enhance the students revision and coursework

The success of the funding is measured against the examination results and these strategies are reviewed by the school and governors annually, usually around October.

Impact of funding 2016/17
During the financial year 2016/17, Regents Park Community College was allocated funding of £240,295 for students who have claimed free school meals at any time in the past six years and this amounts to a Pupil Premium funding. In August 2017 Year 11 P.P students at Regents Park performed extremely well in their GCSEs. Student progress is now judged by the Progress 8 performance measure. Our Year 11 P.P students achieved a Progress 8 score of +0.20, which is significantly above the performance of students nationally. There were 34 P.P students in Year 11, the students achieved outstanding results in English +0.59 and in the open element achieved +0.62.
