Pupil Premium: Babington Community College


I’m here as part of a trip that
we have been running from Babington Community College,
which is all around the Pupil Premium. All students, two terms ago,
were told that there was this chance of an all expenses paid trip to London
and they were challenged to be the top ten in Year 7, 8 or 9. To come on this London trip
I needed to two terms of good behaviour and grades in
Science, Maths and English. I had to work hard and improve
my progress in the last two terms. I’ve had to have no records for
two terms and improve my grades in English, Maths Science. Today has been a kind of walking
tour around London, the main sites really. We’ve seen Big Ben,
we’ve been to Westminster, we’ve been along the Thames,
seen the London Eye, walked down to Trafalgar Square. I told my mates that I was going
to London and then they got really jealous. This guy did the limbo that was
really low and it looked impossible, but it’s not. Other than that, we saw some
acrobats and one of them was putting his arms round his own
neck and twisting it. It was very disgusting. We are tracking right now,
free school meal students outperforming our non free school meal
students by four percent. That’s absolutely massive, so the
national gap is around about 23 percent and we have flipped
it the other way, to four percent. We are immensely proud at Babington.
The students have been working so hard and the gaps are narrowing
everywhere. I think they are getting a great deal
out of it and I think they will realise more what they are getting
out of it when we’ve got back to school and we sit down and we look at the
photos and we talk about it.
