Pupil Premium Impact Statement 2015/16

Introduction

The Pupil Premium was introduced by the Government in April 2011. It is additional funding allocated to schools to support Pupil Premium eligible pupils (those who receive Free School Meals, those who have been in receipt of Free School Meals in the last six years, Looked After Children, service children and adopted children). The aim of the Pupil Premium is to close the historic attainment and progress gaps between this group of children and all other children.


Glossary

PP – Pupil Premium
FSM – Free School Meals
CiC / CLA / LAC – Children who are Looked After (i.e. in care)
SC – Service children – Parents are members of the armed forces ( not the Police)
E6 – Ever 6 – children who have been eligible for FSM in last 6 years
DAP – Disadvantaged children -those PP who are FSM, Ever 6 or CLA (i.e. not including service or adopted children)
EWO – Education Welfare Officer
The DFE now characterise all pupils who are classified as FSM, FSME6 or CLA as disadvantaged and the internal school systems from 2015 onwards identifies this group separately. This enables these students to be monitored throughout the year by all stakeholders. This group differs from the PP group since it doesn’t include the service or adopted children.

 

Summary

  • We are pleased to report that there has been a significant closing of our PP gap to just 4.7% this year on the new headline Basics Level 2 measure. This follows a four-year trend of reduction from a 22% gap in 2012.
  • The Disadvantaged Progress 8 gap is much smaller than the national figure (0.19 v 0.44).
  • Our PP students outperformed non-PP students nationally.
  • High Ability PP students made strong progress (+0.06) above national for all pupils.
  • 94% of disadvantaged students went on to sustained education or an employment/ training destination. This is 7% above the national figure and represents a 20% increase on the school’s prior cohort.

The above support the fact that the Pupil Premium funding has been used effectively by the Academy. Our strategy for 2016/17 will build upon these successes and evolve to ensure that the attainment and progress gaps at Newquay Tretherras continue to close / remain closed.
