It is strongly recommended that families check to see whether they are eligible for free school meals and if they are, contact All Hallows School Finance Office.

At All Hallows we know that some of our students who are sometimes disadvantaged or vulnerable do not qualify or may not be registered for free school meals. We also know that some of our students who do receive free school meals are not as disadvantaged as others. Our mission statement reminds us that our students,

‘…deserve, and should receive, equal love, justice, respect and opportunities for growth and fulfilment.’

We therefore allocate the Pupil Premium funding to those students who, through our monitoring and pastoral systems, are known to be vulnerable or identified as a priority by the school’s tracking processes and pastoral systems.

At All Hallows we have used Pupil Premium funding for the following:

  • Catch up classes in English
  • Catch up classes in Maths
  • One to One Tuition
  • Homework Club
  • After School Revision Sessions
  • Pre-examination Breakfast and Lunch Sessions
  • Counselling
  • Assistance towards school trips
  • Individual music instrumental lessons
  • Purchasing musical instruments
  • Assistance towards DOE
  • Uniform purchasing assistance
  • Sports kit purchasing assistance
  • Provision of Educational equipment and materials

The impact on attainment can be seen from our GCSE results in 2012. 83% of disadvantaged pupils achieved expected progress in English, while 90% of other pupils achieved expected progress. 70% of disadvantaged pupils achieved expected progress in Maths, while 91% of other pupils achieved expected progress. In 2013, 31% of disadvantaged pupils achieved expected progress in English, while 83% of other pupils achieved expected progress. 79% of disadvantaged pupils achieved expected progress in Maths, while 87% of other pupils achieved expected progress.The Pupil Premium is an additional payment to schools enable additional support to be given to those students who may have special needs. It is allocated according to the number of children coming from lower income families (those who are currently known to be eligible for and claiming Free School Meals (FSM)). Children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months are also included in the calculations, as well as Service children

All students, including those from minority ethnic backgrounds and those who speak English as an additional language, make outstanding progress in Years 7 to 11. This is because they work hard and consistently experience high-quality teaching. This outcome also reflects that, after intensive support where necessary, students read and write very well and confidently apply their excellent mathematical skills in other subjects when needed
