Congratulations to ASDAN centres for pupil premium success
An ASDAN centre has won the Key Stage 4 schools category at an awards ceremony for innovative practice in reducing the education attainment gap in England.
The Pupil Premium Awards are open to schools that receive extra funding for each student they have in receipt of free school meals.
La Retraite RC Girls’ School, Lambeth, was announced as the national winner for Key Stage 4, while another ASDAN centre, Maiden Erlegh School, Reading, was announced as regional winner in the same category for the South East.
The winning schools were announced in London by Education and Childcare Minister Sam Gyimah, who urged other schools to follow in their footsteps.
The pupil premium is worth up to £1,900 per child and can be used however schools see fit to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.
