Funding for 2016 -17 is based on 72 students: £67,320
In addition we will receive Pupil Premium plus funding for two students who are post LAC. This amounts to £3800.
Targeted Group Support strategies continue to be funded for those identified in Year 8-10 as needing these boosters. Students also receive personalised support. Year 7 students for whom the school receives Pupil Premium will also be in receipt of both group and personalised support.
Profile of Pupil Premium students within KS3 as a whole
In years 8-10 76% of our FSM6 students are at or above level 4 at KS2 with 27% being above this age related expectation on entry. In the new Year 7 the criteria has changed and the current bench marking figure has not yet been published.
Expected Impact of 2016-17 funding
Through careful allocation of the pupil premium we plan to:
Close the gap in attainment in core subjects.
Continue to ensure that attendance levels remain above 90% for all students.
Further raise reading ages of students with below average levels.
Increase engagement for lower ability Pupil Premium students through the provision of stimulating alternative education at another setting.
Continue to ensure that temporary exclusions, for this demographic, are minimised and in line with that for non-Pupil premium students.
Provide additional opportunities for more able Pupil Premium students in order to raise aspiration and future attainment.
