Pupil Premium

From School Census data, Pupil Premium is allocated to students from low income families who are registered as eligible for Free School Meals, or students who have been looked after continuously for more than six months.   From April 2012 the scheme has been extended to include students who were eligible for Free School Meals, are looked after or have a parent serving in the armed forces, at any time during the past six years.

As a parent or carer, you may be eligible to receive Free School Meals and funding for your child’s school through the Pupil Premium if you receive eligible benefits.  Please check whether you are eligible using the detailed information on the London Borough of Sutton webpage, and, if eligible, please apply directly via the London Borough of Sutton webpage  (this includes all families whose daughter attends Nonsuch High School for Girls, regardless of whether you live in the London Borough Of Sutton).

The website is here.

If eligibility is confirmed, your child’s details will be passed to the school to arrange for your child to receive Free School Meals and for the school to receive the Pupil Premium funding.

Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium funding as they see fit. However, we are keen for parents and other stakeholders to be as fully informed as possible about the ways in which we use the pupil premium funding allocated to us.


Impact Report

Our 2013 Ofsted Inspection reported that the achievement of students supported by the Pupil Premium is outstanding and that there is no significant difference between the standards achieved by these students and their peers. In February 2015 the school was delighted to receive a letter from the Rt. Hon David Laws, MP, Minister of State for Schools, congratulating Nonsuch on the progress made by Pupil Premium students.

In 2016 at the end of KS3, Pupil Premium students performed in line with their peers at Nonsuch.   At the end of KS4 in their GCSEs, they achieved a Progress 8 score of 1.0 well above that of the whole school score of 0.73 for which the school was congratulated by the Regional Schools Commissioner, Dominic Herrington.
