Entry of disadvantaged children to Buckinghamshire grammar schools

We're waiting for Neal Skipper to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear The Buckinghamshire Grammar Schools,

I would be most grateful if you could provide the following information for the cohorts that entered Buckinghamshire grammar schools in 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020 and 2021.
(a) The total number of year 7 children in Buckinghamshire grammar schools known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM) in year 7:
(b) The total number of year 7 children in Buckinghamshire grammar schools known to be eligible for pupil premium (PP).
For the above cohorts, for each of the thirteen grammar schools in Buckinghamshire for which you manage and administer secondary transfer testing:
(c) The number of year 7 children known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM) in year 7:
(d) The number of year 7 children known to be eligible for pupil premium (PP).

Any single common census date would be fine.

Yours faithfully and with many thanks in advance,

Neal Skipper.

TBGS, The Buckinghamshire Grammar Schools

TBGS, The Buckinghamshire Grammar Schools

Dear Mr Skipper

Further to your email I am writing to confirm the extent to which we can
respond to your request.

 

You have requested information concerning Year 7 children entering
Buckinghamshire grammar schools who were eligible for free school meals
and pupil premium for the years 2017-2021. I can confirm that this
information is not held by TBGS. This is because this information is
related to school admissions rather than to the Secondary Transfer Test
for which TBGS is responsible. I suggest you contact Buckinghamshire
Council to see if they hold this information as they are responsible for
allocating children to school places, but you may need to contact the
grammar schools direct.

 

Kind regards

Mark Sturgeon
Chair
The Buckinghamshire Grammar Schools
