Pupil Premium Performance

From 2016, the Government has stated that school Pupil Premium (PP) cohort’s outcomes will be compared to national non-Pupil Premium students with the intent of closing this difference.

The figures below indicate progress against national figures for Pupil Premium cohorts in recent years.  

Year 11 Pupil Premium students 2017 (55 students)

Our Year 11 PP cohort is similar in terms of its structural make up to other year groups.  It is largely White British, (41 students) though includes 5 EAL students as well as 3 students with no KS2 results.  The group includes 3 students judged as Low ability (based on their Reading and Mathematics average score), 34  as Middle prior attainment and 16 as Higher level prior attainment.  By contrast, the writing assessments at KS2 indicate: 9 below average, 38 average and only 6 above average  .

EAL students do very well, making excellent progress well above the national non Pupil Premium group in all subjects and elements.  The White British group makes progress in line with expectations in English and Mathematics, but is lower in the Open and Ebacc elements.  Overall, the group achieved 75% at 4+ in EM, well above the national non  Pupil Premium threshold and allowing progress to a range of college courses in line with many of our PP students’ ambitions.  16 students achieved 5+ in both English and  Mathematics.  

Of the 11 Pupil Premium students who took the Ebacc combination of subjects, 5 achieved it at both 4+ and 5+ outcomes.
 
No students were NEETS, 22 went on to college courses taking courses such as plumbing, electrics, hairdressng, animal care and sport including 12 students to Nescot which was the most popular college.     3 went on to apprenticeships and the rest stayed at the sixth form.   The students who stayed on in the sixth form (25 students) achieved a positive progress 8 score of 0.1. 
 
Year 11 Pupil Premium students 2016 (39 students)

  • Value added measures for PP students in English and Mathematics were just slightly below with a measure of -0.1 while Science measured at -0.2.
  • Value added in MFL was a real strength with the 19 students entering achieving a value added score of +0.23.
  • C+ in both English and Mathematics was achieved by 64% of our PP students.
  • Of those Pupil Premium students entering the Ebacc, 100% achieved it.

 

Year 11 Pupil Premium students 2015 (54 students)

  • C+ EM was 67% for PP students. These outcomes exceed national figures for PP and non PP students (56%) in 2015.
  • Expected progress in English was 75% for PP students, exceeding national figures for PP (57%) and non PP (74%) students in 2015.
  • Expected progress in Mathematics was 73% for PP students, again exceeding national figures for PP (49%) and non PP (72%) students in 2015.
  • Expected Progress in English and Mathematics for the school’s PP cohort was Sig+.

 

Year 11 Pupil premium students 2014 (37 students)

Results shown are based on the first examination outcomes in each subject.  This means that the results used in the figures on this section are below those that students gained by the end of Year 11.

  • 5A* - C inc EM was 43% for PP students, compared to 36% for PP students nationally and 64% for non PP nationally
  • Expected progress in English was 62% for PP students, compared to 58% for PP students nationally and 75% for non PP nationally
  • Expected progress in Mathematics was 63% for PP students, compared to 48% for PP students nationally and 71% for non PP students nationally
