Pupil Premium Strategy 2016-17


2016/2017 Projected Allocation = £86,935                                       Jan 2017 PP Primary 43%, Secondary 53%


At King Solomon International Business School we aim to achieve outstanding outcomes for all of our students through an engaging, enriching and challenging curriculum. We believe that the needs of our disadvantaged pupils should be considered on an individual basis to provide individualised support and intervention linked to their specific needs.  When students arrive at King Solomon International Business School there is already an attainment difference between our disadvantaged and other students and we work to remove this difference by increasing aspirations, removing any barriers to learning and building links with parents that enable them to work with us to promote more rapid progress. All strategies will contribute to the school vision of education excellence and character development for all students.

The following statements summarise our key strategies that have an impact upon improving the progress made by our disadvantaged students:


  • A broad curriculum that clearly links theories and skills to real life contexts and examples.
  • A focus upon improving the level of challenge in lessons for all students.
  • High academic expectation of all students.
  • Aspirational targets that are reviewed at regular intervals.
  • Regular assessment that provides clear and structured feedback as to how students can make rapid sustained progress in all year groups and in all subjects.
  • A focus upon providing regular opportunities for students to respond to marking in lessons to ensure they are able to use this advice to make further progress.
  • Individualised interventions using the detailed information from these assessments to help each student achieve their specific needs.
  • Targeted intervention for identified students in core subjects after school on a Thursday and Friday.
  • Focus on outstanding teaching across the school and the clear impact this has upon pupil progress.


  • Home learning that develops independent research skills.
  • Home learning student support that includes a home learning club where students have a safe and positive environment to complete this work with the support of teaching staff (and access to ICT).
  • Daytime and evening subject specific parent workshops and support that equip parents to support with home learning.
  • Opportunities for parents to meet with school leaders to feedback on student reports and the data provided.
  • Development of a website that provides resources to support home learning.
  • Parent questionnaires that enable us to listen to the voice of our parents and respond to their needs to break down barriers to learning.
  • Parent workshops to develop the necessary skills to support with improving student behaviour.


  • Literacy programmes led by our literacy co-ordinator that enable all students to improve their own literacy including a daily literacy lesson for all students.
  • Literacy and numeracy referral systems leading to targeted intervention.
  • Numeracy support from the numeracy co-ordinator and mathematics staff to develop clear and consistent methods in all subjects.
  • Small group sizes for less able students to provide more opportunities for individual and small group support.
  • The recruitment of outstanding quality subject specialists in Maths, English and Science including a Mathematics specialist Higher Level Teaching Assistant.
  • High quality learning and revision resources available for all subjects.


  • Quality assurance of all department strategies and interventions through regular line management.
  • At least half termly work scrutiny and learning walks to closely monitor whether all students are receiving the necessary support and guidance to make rapid progress. Frequency increased if concerns are raised.
  • Regular whole school collection of student data to provide an overview and monitor the progress of all student groups.
  • Standardisation meetings before data collection to ensure the consistency of this data and intervention periods following each data collection to provide rapid targeted support where needed (students, staff, student groups, subjects).
  • All staff are accountable for the progress of students.
  • Pupil Premium Champion (MY SLT) to raise the profile of this group of students and their specific needs to staff.


  • Opportunities to lead, serve on school council, organise charity events, perform and represent the school in a wide range of activities regardless of their background.
  • Free musical instrument lessons to develop musical creativity.
  • Careers and education pathways advice that broaden student’s choices to consider.
  • Individualised guidance during GCSE and Post 16 options processes to ensure that student choices are not limited by lack of understanding or the previous experiences and choices of those that are close to them.
  • Weekly themes for assemblies and tutorials that broaden student’s experiences of British values, career pathways, other religions and cultures as well as social and charitable campaigns.
  • The weekly themes also promote the development of leadership, organisation, resilience, independence and communication which build into a programme to raise each student’s future employability (the Edge).
  • Improving health and wellbeing are also included and these tie into the school’s development of its catering service to promote and improve healthy eating


  • High expectations of behaviour and positive contribution to school life with a wide range of support structure to enable students to improve their own behaviour for learning.
  • High expectations of attendance and punctuality with a wide range of effective strategies to help students understand why these are important and then make improvements if they do not meet them.
  • A culture of rewards and praise such as subject praise texts and postcards sent weekly, subject star of the week display boards, rewards points for positive contributions to lessons and school life and rewards trips for students showing improved progress.
  • Students involved in the school council help to develop the positive attitudes to learning descriptors and rewards system.

The Pupil Premium policy will be reviewed in July 2017.

Measurable Outcomes: Progress and Attainment

The reduction of any progress differences between Pupil Premium and Non Pupil Premium students across all subjects within the school (all year groups) – all differences in school to be less than 10%

Measurable Outcomes: Attendance

The reduction of any differences between Pupil Premium and Non Pupil Premium students across all year groups – all differences to be less than 2% (national 2.2%)

Tracking of PP Fund Expenditure

All pupil premium funding will be tracked at a pupil level to ensure that all students gain access to the individual funding that they are entitled to.

For example here is an extract from our tracking system showing which students benefitted from an event or initiative funded by the Pupil Premium. It will also calculate the estimated amount of funding that each student has directed towards them to ensure that all students benefit from their funding.

Monitoring and Evaluation

The Director of Teaching and Learning will have overall responsibility for the strategic oversight of Pupil Premium and Literacy/Numeracy Catch Up provision and for the monitoring and evaluation of provision. Working with other members of the Senior Leadership Team, they will:

  • Ensure that data systems ensure all school leaders can track the progress of Pupil Premium and Literacy/Numeracy Catch Up students;
  • Ensure that the needs of all pupil Premium and Literacy Catch Up students are met with an appropriate curriculum, appropriate interventions, and other strategies to narrow the achievement difference;
  • Ensure that there are effective opportunities in place for Gifted and Talented Pupil Premium students.



It will be the responsibility of the Head of Secondary working with the Director of Teaching and Learning (Pupil Premium Champion) to produce termly reports for the Governing Body Learning Committee. These will report on:

  • The progress made towards narrowing the difference, by year group, for socially disadvantaged students.
  • An outline of the provision that was made since the last report and the impact on student outcomes.
  • An evaluation of the cost effectiveness, in terms of the progress made by the students receiving a particular provision, when compared with other forms of support.
  • The Governors of the school will ensure that there is an annual statement to parents on how The Pupil Premium funding has been used to address the issue of narrowing the achievement difference for socially disadvantaged students. This task will be carried out within the requirements published by the Department for Education and will appear on our school website.
  • Governors will nominate a Pupil Premium Governor who will monitor provision between termly reports.
