Measuring the Impact of Pupil Premium Spending
• Measures the impact of the interventions by tracking the progress of Pupil Premium pupils on a termly basis
• Measures the success of pupils at the end of Key Stage 4 relative to their target grades and against threshold measures such as 5+ A*-C, 5+ A*-C including English and Mathematics, EBacc and expected progress in English, Mathematics and Science
• Monitors and supports pupils accessing pastoral support and discusses their progress and needs regularly
92% (2015 - 90%) of all pupils received five or more grades at A* to C; for those in receipt of the pupil premium, this figure was 77% (2015- 83%).
77% (2015 – 74%) of pupils in receipt of Pupil Premium achieved at least five GCSEs at grades A*-C including Mathematics and English; this is 10% (2015 – 9%) below the total for all pupils (87%), but far exceeds the national average for all Pupil Premium boys and that for all boys nationally.
50% (2015 - 46%) of all pupils attained the EBacc; for those in receipt of the pupil premium, this figure was 31% (2015 – 26%) - again, above national averages for that group.
The proportion of all pupils making the expected progress (i.e. 3 levels) in English and Mathematics was 91% and 86% respectively and, for pupils in receipt of the pupil premium, 70% and 81%.
Government introduced a new ‘Progress 8’ measure in 2016. The Progress 8 score for all pupils was 0.44; for those in receipt of the pupil premium, this figure was 0.23 - again, above national averages for that group.
