Central government gives funding for schools to support pupils from deprived backgrounds. This funding is called the 'Pupil Premium'. It is designed to close the gap in learning and achievement for those children from less advantaged backgrounds. At St Elizabeth, we are committed to ensuring excellence for all pupils. This year, our pupil premium is being used in the following ways:
|Achievements & Awards|
St Elizabeth School is very proud to acknowledge its achievements n the 2008 SATs tests. There was much local and London news coverage of which this was a typical example from the Evening Standard:
"A 'TRULY multi-cultural' school in a deprived part of east London triumphed in today's league tables, helping children soar more than one year ahead of their peers. All 45 pupils who took their Sats at St Elizabeth Catholic primary school in Bethnal Green reached the Government's target score of Level 4 in English, maths and science, with many going on to achieve higher grades. But the school's most notable achievement in the tables was its exceptionally high score for value-added, which measures how far a school helps pupils make progress. Between the ages of seven and 11, St Elizabeth's pupils made on average four terms more progress than expected given their backgrounds and previous test scores. As a result the school was ranked first among state primaries in London for tests taken in 2008. The performance was particularly impressive given that one in three pupils does not speak English as their first language, and more than a quarter are from such poor homes they receive free meals.
Carolyn Lindsay, acting headteacher at St Elizabeth's, said staff were "delighted" with the children's success. "We are a truly multi-cultural school," Miss Lindsay, 48, said. "Our children work very well together."
