Pupil Premium Statement

Information for the 2011-2012 Academic Year

  1. Pupil Premium Funding:

    The Pupil Premium allocation for the 2011-2012 Academic Year was £41,962.

    For the 2012-2013 Academic Year, we expect to receive £86,000

  2. Pupil Premium Expenditure:

    Pupil Premium expenditure in the previous Academy Financial Year;

    These funds were used in a variety of ways to provide additional support and intervention for all students, but with a particular focus on those in receipt of 'Free School Meals' (FSM) and 'Looked After Children' (LAC). A key area where these funds were targeted is to ensure the continued progress and academic achievement for these vulnerable groups.

    Specific examples of the support and interventions which took place include:

    • Additional resource in English and maths to provide additional teaching groups which were smaller (where staffing allowed). This allowed for additional support for vulnerable students where it had been identified that they were underachieving
    • Curriculum support - additional time focussing on maths and English with learning mentors, and/or the one-to-one tutor for maths and English who focussed on low literacy and numeracy levels and where the rate of progress was not as expected
    • Accelerated reader programme to develop literacy skills across KS3
    • G&T programme to inspire and motivate students
    • Reader leaders - Year 12 and 13 externally certificated scheme (fully-funded) where students in Year 7 received a mentor and spent one or two sessions a week developing reading and social skills
    • Careers advice and guidance - ex-Connexions advisor employed to give advice to students from Years 9-13, both as groups and individually, to reduce the risk of any student becoming a NEET
    • School counsellor available for those students wishing to have individual appointments
    • Curriculum trips subsidised or part-subsidised to prevent social exclusion
    • Fairthorne Manor (Year 7) and other residentials subsidised or part-subsidised
    • Transport subsidies for those facing financial difficulties
    • Uniform, PH&F sports kit and essential equipment (including study guides in KS4 and text books in KS5) subsidies for those facing financial difficulties
    • Subsidised music lessons
    • Revision programmes and external agencies delivering study skills to maximise achievement
  3. Intentions for the 2012-13 Academic Year:

    We intend to continue with the initiatives listed above. We will continually review them and add or remove initiatives to ensure continued success, raised aspirations and to limit social exclusion.

  4. Impact on educational attainment on vulnerable students for whom we receive Pupil Premium funding:

    The vast majority of our Pupil Premium students made excellent progress throughout the year. Students' progress and achievement was measured, in particular, at the end of KS3, KS4 and KS5.
