Pupil Premium Report

Pupil Premium Report 2015/16

The current EVER 6 FSM is approximately 59%.  There are currently 11 students in total who are CLA.

Income for 2014/15 is £449,000 (and £45, 000 for Year 7 funding, additional expenditure in yellow for this)

£456,000 is total allocation for 2015/16

Aspect

Amount

Focus of Work

Evaluative commentary/impact

Adjusted expenditure for 15/16

Rationale

Mentoring Costs/Behaviour Intervention

80,000.00

Behavioural intervention and tracking of targeted students who are PP who need close behaviour support and positive engagement strategies. Commonly targeted at Year 7, 8 and 9 given specific need in these year groups with CLA/more challenging students.

 1 FSM as a proportion of exclusions has now fallen below non-fsm (41%v59%)
2 similar pattern for internal exclusions
3 wider behaviour data such as detentions etc shows no significant gaps between groups

80000.00

We now have five learning mentors in post. This has made a significant difference especially with more students in Years 7/8 in developing positive learning behaviours.

Education Welfare (2 dedicated officers)

65,000.00

 Attendance and welfare of PP students, monitored on a daily and weekly basis. Organises interventions and attends all PEP meetings.

1 Attendance FSM well below national average, including PA
2 Attendance FSM last year 95% versus 97%, gap closed even further
3 PA last year 4% FSM and 2% non-FSM, gap well below national average
4 No gaps in punctuality

65000.00

This strategy is effective at early intervention which is key with attendance. Next year, additional work needed with targeted students in Year 8.

Literacy and numeracy lessons - RW staffing costs

-  Maths LSA small group

45,000.00 (20000 Year 7)

 Customised trainers for students on L3 and below in English delivering programme instead of MFL

Highly effective. We started the year with 3 groups in Year 7. Excellent progress in English, 12 students exited the programme and now following enjoying a language.

35000.00

Additional responsibility given to a HLTA to lead this work. She is fully trained on the course and uses LUCID to track and measure progress. 3 groups now in Year 7 and 2 in year 8.

121 Tuition/small group tuition

13,000.00

For KS3 agreed as part of PEP package, specifically tailored to meet needs of PP students at KS4, for example, weekly 1-1 Mathematics, Science and/or English.

 1 Gap in EP progress Year 11 English -3, EP+ -5, Year 11 Maths EP+ is -5
2 In 2014 Year 11 outcomes, gap has appeared in % with 2 Sciences
3 In others either very small gap or surplus in fsm performance in E/M/S, see pp annual report

13000.00

Budget increasing here as we need increase science intervention and earlier intervention in the academic year for mathematics focusing on assessment outcomes, not necessarily teacher predictions.

Deputy Coordinator in SEN

30,000.00

Specific leadership responsibility to monitor and track the progress and attainment of students who are PP. Also liaise with LA on achievement, PEP meetings.

 Numerous case studies available to support investment in this carea especially for vulnerable students

30000.00

Maintain key work in this area

Reading programme and costs

40,000.00

(15,000 Year 7)

 Reading books and materials for KS3

Accelerated reading programme

LUCID licenses and tracking of reading ages

 1 Well stocked library
2 LUCID readings age data shows high impact
3 Progress data for Year 7, 12 students exiting programme

20000.00

Another 13 form entry coming in for Year 7 and so we need to maintain investment in this area, we carefully use LUCID to track reading ages.

External EWO support attendance

36,000.00

Oversee and support management of attendance and welfare issues, focusing on robust action where needed.

See attendance data above, key here is also the fact that fixed penalty letters, court action and all difficult cases are led by the external EWO team.

36000.00

Agreed fee, maintained at 2014 rates.

Speech Therapy/Oracy support

56,000.00

(10,000 Year 7)

Year 7/8 – ensuring any PP student on L3 and below on entry has dedicated English support and intervention to ensure progress made and improvements in reading, writing and/or speaking and listening.

 Several case studies and detailed reports shows impact of this work in comprehension, word recognition and spelling. Our work in this area is seen as best practice and used in other schools.

60000.00

With larger cohorts in Years 7 and 8, we are finding there is more need in these year groups. Need to make sure programme is robust.

Residential courses

20,000.00

Personalised and small group teaching across targeted weekend sessions. All resources, costs and accommodation covered. They have proved extremely successful year on year.

 Excellent attendance at residentials. Impact can be seen in Year 11 outcomes eg,
gaps in Year 11 A*-C in History -2%, Maths -7%, English -3%. Science and GG gaps is wider.

20000.00

Need to continue this work but focus more on Science as well as a maths ensuring targeted students at risk of underachieveing attend rather than optional.

Study Skills

5,000.00

 Tailored package to support students in study skills developed delivered over the year

 Student feedback on this was that it helped them prepare for mocks. The way we organised 100% of pp students benefited.

5000.00

Similar package will be delivered next year.  Also will link to new homework strategy.

Resources for students

15,000.00

Uniform and resources are purchased for students as required, for example, from PEP meetings and/or welfare meetings such as laptops, general Academy equipment.

Continuation from last year.

Trips, Innovation week, PROM, Focus days

25,000.00

Every student is encouraged to access innovation week experiences, enrichment experiences and any foreign visits. Costs are subsidised for PP students. Our experiences are extensive and key to our SMSC programme.

 Participation rates across PP students, feedback from students, see enrichment report from last year.

20000.00

Slight reduction here as we have altered the format for Innovation Week to include deep learning days in the academy.

Uniform Grants

5,000.00

Uniform and resources are purchased for students as required, for example, from PEP meetings and/or welfare meetings such as laptops, general Academy equipment.

 Excellent standards of uniform are clearly evident. Main issue was blazers/ties.

5000.00

As per last year, will monitor given increase in the roll.

Careers consultancy

20,000.00

1/3 of careers shared with 2 other Federation academies. Every PP student has personal 1-1 meetings to ensure correct IAG is in place to track career progress.

 Low NEET indicators, impartial advice and guidance given. Several case studies and lots of 1-1 impact.

20000.00

Increase in allocation to 2 days per week

Work experience

4,000.00

We use an external placement as required for targeted students on a half termly intervention for intensive 1-1 and targeted social skills intervention.

 All students had a placement, coverage of costs if needed. Dedicated W Exp Co-ordinator who sourced placements for students. 

2000.00

Reduced contribution from this budget so more can go to 1-1, small group tuition.

Government figures for the end of Year 11 show that our FSM students made significantly more

progress overall and in each of the core subjects of English and Maths than do FSM students in

other schools. The “gap” between the achievements of FSM v NON-FSM is significantly lower

than the national average. Value added for PP students is significantly above the national average.

Historical year 11 data to be updated for 2015 when ROL validated available:

Year 7 catch up premium – mathematics

  • Most of students are making rapid progress with high proportions of students on track to make at least expected progress by KS4.
  • The two level 3a students from this group who have been identified as not yet on track to make expected progress are already attending additional intervention sessions to ensure that any gaps in their knowledge are closed rapidly.
  • The level 3b and 3c students who are having greater difficulties accessing the assessment material, have been given additional support by the LSS team.

Year 7 catch up premium – English

  • All of the students are on track to make expected progress across all sub levels.
  • Progress of the catch up group is slightly accelerated compared to the year group as a whole
  • This indicates that the interventions put in place with the additional funding received to support these students, such as the teaching assistant running the Read-Write programme, targeted in-classroom support and specific mentoring is having a significant positive and rapid impact on the progress of these students.
