How Pupil Premium Funding supports pupils at Handsworth Grange Community Sports College

If your child is registered for free school meals, the school also receives ‘Pupil Premium’ funding. This funding helps us to ensure the best possible outcomes for pupils through providing high quality teaching and learning. We have based our spending priorities on research such as the Sutton Trust-EEF Teaching and Learning Toolkit, which provides guidance for schools on how to use their resources to improve the attainment of disadvantaged pupils.

Pupil Premium Awards

The school won a regional award and were National Finalists in the Pupil Premium Awards 2015. Handsworth Grange Community Sports College has been recognised as one of the most improved schools in the country in terms of the attainment and progress of our disadvantaged pupils (since 2011).

School-to-School Support

Since 2015 we have worked with over thirty schools to improve outcomes for disadvantaged pupils from Sheffield and across the region. Support has included school-to-school support, Pupil Premium Reviews, conferences, network meetings, sharing resources and learning reviews. In 2017-18 we are delighted to be working with Marc Rowland (Rosendale Research School) to deliver Learn Sheffield’s Project Maximising the Impact of the Pupil Premium with fifteen Sheffield schools.
