Projected Spend

In order to identify projects that demonstrate the greatest impact on learning, the school has used a calculation tool from the Sutton Trust.  The Sutton Trust was founded in 1997 by Sir Peter Lampl to improve social mobility through education. As well as being a think-tank, the Sutton Trust is a ‘do-tank,’ having funded over 200 programmes, commissioned over 170 research studies and influenced Government education policy by pushing social mobility to the top of the political agenda.  Their calculation tool considers intervention strategies (such as use of adults or constructive feedback) and weighs their cost/impact versus the potential it can accelerate a child's learning measured in +/- months progress. Not all interventions have a positive impact. St Paul's seeks to use strategies that provide both the best impact within a limited budget.

In all subjects Pupil Premium children are just above class average/non-PP pupils. Of the three subjects writing is the weakest, though it is still at age expected progress of 4 steps on average and is not significantly behind maths or reading.

Given that PP pupils make better than expected progress and exceed both comparison groups (school average, non-pp average), the school believes that the deployment of the Pupil Premium grant is used effectively.
