Implementation of Pupil Premium Spending Terms 3 & 4 Academic Year 2020/21

Back to Pupil Premium

Budget

Funding for the academic year 2020-21 is based on those students eligible for Pupil Premium at the census in January 2020, i.e. academic year 2019-20.

Therefore, funding for our current year 7 cohort and students eligible after January 2020 will not be available until after the January 2021 census, i.e. academic year 2021-22.

Consequently there will be a difference between numbers of students we receive funding for and current students for this academic year.

Funding breakdown based on current students:

  • 122  PP students @ £955
  • 11  SPP students @ £310
  • PP plus student @ £2,345

Total – £120,355

NB: Two students are both PP and SPP.

Cohort

This academic year (for Term 3 & 4 only) 131 students qualify for funding as follows:

  Year 7 Year 8 Year 9 Year 10 Year 11
PP students per year 33 28 28 22 20
FSM 21 17 20 13 10
FSM6 8 10 5 9 8
SPP 3 3 3 2
SEN 5 5 5 3 2
EAL 8 8 5 5 6
Young Carer 1 1

Provision

Research evidence from The Sutton Trust shows that ‘providing effective feedback on pupil’s performance’ is the most cost-effective strategy. Therefore, funding is primarily spent on staff provision. In particular, the provision of ‘one to one’ mentoring sessions for each student with our designated Academic Mentor.     Students are seen every fortnight within the school timetable.

Mentoring enables any areas of weakness or concern to be identified and support provided accordingly. Regular contact with each student closely monitors progress and well-being.

Mentoring sessions have a strong focus on feedback, metacognition and target setting ensuring that the student responds to their teacher’s comments and suggestions for improvement.

Impact

In 2016, the school Progress 8 score was +0.16 while disadvantaged gained +0.24. In 2017 the Progress 8 for disadvantaged students was +0.97 compared to a whole school figure of +0.86.

In 2018 this was +0.94 v +0.49.

In 2019, the school Progress 8 score was +0.50 and the disadvantaged -0.12.

In 2020, the school Progress 8 score was +0.66 and the disadvantaged +0.32.

Most years, our disadvantaged students have outperformed the rest of the cohort. The approach we use has benefited our PP funded students.

Monitoring

Target grades are analysed on a bi-termly basis in order to gauge both a student’s individual progress and their performance compared to their peer group. Grade comparison also allows for effective targets to be set with improvements to be made each term. Student’s individual APS figures are recorded and compared with their peer group each term.
