The ‘Pupil Premium’ funding was introduced by the Government in April 2011 with the objective of narrowing the achievement gap between students from low income families and their peers. Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit, however they are accountable for how they use the additional funding to support pupils from specific target groups. New measures have been included in the performance tables to show the achievement of pupils who attract the Pupil Premium.
Analysing the past performance of students eligible for Pupil Premium funding suggested that there are a number of barriers to the achievement and wellbeing of these students:
Fallibroome is committed to ensuring support and resources are in place to enable our disadvantaged students to improve their academic outcomes. We have responded to this challenge by introducing the following initiatives:
Pupil Premium funding for the last academic year was £137,287
Minor overspend of funding is absorbed by the main school budget.
Pupil Premium funding for this academic year will be approximately £152,780.
The achievement data for our pupil premium students is monitored very closely and regularly compared against the rest of the cohort. At this point in time, we are especially keen to see the achievement gap closing against the following measures:
The tables below summarise the progress made against each of these measures. The projected outcomes of the current Year 11 cohort have also been included. National and Cheshire data have also been added where it is available.
A gap of 28% indicates that pupil premium outcomes were 28% lower than the rest of the cohort against this measure
Progress has clearly been made in closing the gap against our key measures. Our achievement gap is now below the national average and well below the average for Cheshire East. Our projected outcomes for 2017 need some careful monitoring and support packages are in place to address these issues.
Catch-up funding for the last academic year was £15,500.
Catch-up funding for this academic year is £16,000.
N.B Of the 32 children eligible for catch-up premium 10 pupils are also Ever6 children and therefore are funded £935 pupil premium grant in addition to the catch-up funding. The additional spend over the £16,000 will be included in the main Pupil Premium grant reporting.
An analysis of the results for the targeted students is below. These results are based on the progression of the students from their Key Stage 2 SAT results to the end of their Year 7 studies. This table also allows comparison with those pupils who ended KS2 on Level 4 or above
From analysing the end of year data, it is clear to see that students who joined Fallibroome below a Level 4 in English are making strong progress. Students who joined Fallibroome below a Level 4 in Maths have also made progress and on average are showing a good improvement of one sub level. We are currently working on a new Maths intervention programme that should help support the development of the students who join the school below a Level 4.
