Part A: Pupil premium strategy plan

Statement of intent

We want to ensure that disadvantaged students achieve and flourish at school, enjoying a broad and balanced curriculum, developing a love for art, culture and sport and

becoming independent learners who are also engaged and responsible citizens.

To this end we will:

  • support the quality of teaching, providing effective staff professional development and ensuring all staff take responsibility for the education of disadvantaged students
  • provide targeted academic support, such as tutoring
  • deal with non-academic barriers to success in school, such as attendance, behaviour and social and emotional support

 

Challenges

This details the key challenges to achievement that we have identified among our disadvantaged pupils.

Intended outcomes 

This explains the outcomes we are aiming for by the end of our current strategy plan, and how we will measure whether they have been achieved.

Intended outcome

Success criteria

Improved attendance and reduced persistent absence

Attendance in line or better than national averages; persistent absence data to be at or better than national data

Improved attainment

KS3 – students reach age related expectations KS4 – progress data to be at national averages (ensure sufficient challenge for each prior attainment group, including high ability)

Better reading comprehension

Closing the gap between actual reading age and age-expected reading age so that students can access an appropriate curriculum

Social, emotional and behavioural needs of students are met

Early intervention in place; number of fixed term exclusions at or below national averages; restorative justice established; PSHE programme enhanced with external agency support

Part B: Review of outcomes in the previous academic year

Pupil premium strategy outcomes

This details the impact that our pupil premium activity had on pupils in the 2020 to 2021 academic year.

Due to COVID-19, performance measures have not been published for 2019 to 2020 or for 2020 to 2021.

In the last two years teacher assessed grades have been given to students. The results have shown a narrowing of the gap between disadvantaged students when compared to the whole cohort:

2020

A8 English overall: 9.4; disadvantaged: 9.4
A8 maths overall: 8.6; disadvantaged: 8.1

2021
A8 English overall: 8.5; disadvantaged: 8.2
A8 maths overall: 8.6; disadvantaged: 7.9

2019 data for comparison shows:
A8 English overall: 8.5; disadvantaged: 7.3
A8 maths overall: 7.0; disadvantaged: 5.8
