Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium funding is provided to support children who are entitled to free school meals, have been in receipt of free school meals in the last 6 years, are children of service personnel, cared for children, children who are adopted from care or have special guardianship.

The funding is provided to help these children to make progress in school and to fulfil their potential academically and socially and emotionally.

At Malbank we take care to ensure that this fund is being used to have a positive impact on progress by carrying out regular and robust reviews of the interventions that are put into place.

Strategy Statement September 2018

Strategy Statement January 2019

Following a review of the achievement of our Disadvantaged students, the school has identified the barriers facing Disadvantaged pupils at Malbank. These can be summarised as;

1. Key Pupil Premium Sub Groups - namely Cared for Children; PP pupils from hard to reach families and middle ability PP pupils.

2. Developing resilience and character education for PP pupils

3. PP pupil's achievement in maths and science

4. PP pupil's achievement in key subjects in the ‘open basket', especially linked to literacy issues and their responses to high value questions which require extended answers.

5. Attendance of Disadvantaged students

To help remove these barriers the following strategies will be employed.

Staff awareness of the individual students in the sub groups will be raised regularly to ensure they are ‘known' and their needs are met.


An NLE will lead INSET at the Teaching and Learning conference to share how to best support disadvantaged pupils and subgroups within this cohort. Horsforth quadrants will be devised.

Yr 11 Cared for Children will be mentored and their PEP's will be led by JME.



Progress managers will engage targeted hard to reach families in termly structured meetings following the ‘signs of safety' model. Conduct home visits where appropriate.


All stakeholders will know what areas of development are so that appropriate interventions by the student, class teacher and curriculum leader can be put into place to support progress.


Appropriate support will be put into place so that students achieve and their A8 and P8 is in line with their aspirational targets.


Targeted support can be put into place in Curriculum areas by subject teachers and by pastoral teams. All staff will have clear accountability.


Cared for children feel supported and targeted interventions are put into place quickly to support progress and remove any barriers to their development.

Families will engage better and students will be better supported outside of the classroom to make progress. FSM attendance will improve.
