We would always encourage parents to contact Becca Wall, Pupil Premium, (becca.wall@lawrencesheriffschool.com.com) if financial issues are preventing their son from accessing the opportunities within the school. All enquiries will be dealt within the strictest confidence and will be responded to sympathetically whenever possible. Over recent years we have been able to help with the cost of school uniform, transport, music fees and school trips. Please do not hesitate to contact the Pupil Premium if you would like to have an informal and entirely confidential discussion about ways in which the school can provide support.

We would also remind parents that they can apply for free school meals by contacting Warwickshire County Council at:

Children, Young People and Families, Saltisford Office Park, Ansell Way, Warwick, CV34 4SP
Telephone 01926 742060
or apply online at:
www.warwickshire.gov.uk/freeschoolmeals

Even if you live outside Warwickshire you should still contact Warwickshire County Council since your child attends this school. The comment on the WCC website about Pupil Premium provides a helpful summary:

When you successfully apply for free school meals the school will receive an extra £935 of government funding, even if your child does not want the meal. This additional funding will be used to help children from lower income families do their very best at school.

Impact of Pupil Premium expenditure as measured by Summer 2018 results

Our Progress 8 score for 2018 is 0.4, whilst the Progress 8 score for our three disadvantaged students is approximately 0.29. Our modelling use the DFE Level 3 value-added tool suggest that at Y13 both disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged had a VA score of around 0.3.

Whilst this data is provisional and will be revised, it does appear to suggest that the measures we put in place last year to respond to gaps between disadvantaged and other students at both GCSE and Post 16 have had an impact. In particular, we feel that the appointment of a pupil premium champion has promoted great consistency in our work and enabled us to focus upon the specific needs of individual students. We are also feel that increased mentoring from the pupil premium champion and others has supported students as they progress through courses. Students in current examination classes are experiencing the benefits of these changes becoming embedded, alongside the consistency provided by our Pupil Premium Champion working across the school from ages 11-19.
