Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium at the Priory City of Lincoln Academy
The Priory City of Lincoln Academy is committed to raising the academic standard of all students. As an Academy we receive Pupil Premium funding to help us in our ambition that every student is successful and can contribute to the life of the academy.

The purpose of the Pupil Premium allocation is to close the GCSE attainment gap between the national cohort and specific groups of students who have been defined as those who:

  • Are eligible for  free school meals
  • Are looked after
  • Have one or more parents serving in the armed forces

Nationally around 27% fewer students from these categories achieves 5A*-C GCSE grades compared to the national average. (2012/13).

In the academic year 2012-13 the Academy received approximately £170,000 in additional funding through the pupil premium to support the achievement and welfare of students at the academy.  

In 2012-13 the gap between those Pupil Premium Students and the rest of the school cohort for the 5A*-C measure was 28%. The gap between Pupil Premium students at the school and the average attainment of all non Pupil Premium students nationally was 38%.

In the academic year 2013-14 the Academy received approximately £213,000 in additional funding through the pupil premium to support the achievement and welfare of pupils at the academy. 

In 2013-14 the gap between those Pupil Premium Students and the rest of the school cohort for the 5A*-C measure had narrowed to 20.9%. The gap between Pupil Premium students at the school and the average attainment of all non Pupil Premium students nationally had also narrowed to 32.4%.

Pupil Premium 2014-15
There are 200 students on roll that are eligible for Pupil Premium funding at the Academy. The funding is used in line with national recommendations to support the progress and attainment of this group by:

  • The employment of intervention coordinators to work in the three core subjects of English, Mathematics and Science. The co-ordinators work with small groups and one to one with targeted students to support their progress and maximise attainment.
  • The employment of a Primary trained Mathematics teacher, who is deployed across Key Stage 3 to ensure that the transition from Primary to Secondary school is as seamless as possible.
  • The funding of additional teachers in English and Mathematics to reduce class sizes.
  • Targeted pastoral care including one to one mentoring, interventions to address social emotional, behavioural or attendance issues.
  • Targeted revision and intervention support before and after school and during the holidays. The provision of revision resources, books and materials.

Yr7 Catch up Funding
This academic year the Academy will receive £8 000 in Year 7 Catch up funding. This money will be used to support the progress of students in English and Mathematics who entered the Academy with Key Stage 2 SAT levels below L4.

We are currently supporting 24 students with an additional 4 lessons per fortnight in English and 22 students with an additional 2 lessons per fortnight in Mathematics. Lessons are led by Intervention Coordinators in the SEND department using small group teaching to identify areas of weakness and focus on strategies to close these gaps.
