Monitoring and evaluation of the impact of spending

We use a wide evidence base to monitor and evaluate the impact of spending, including:

  • Data
  • Scrutiny of pupils’ work
  • Attendance
  • Behaviour
  • Attitude to Learning scores
  • Observations
  • Pupils’ views
  • Staff views

 

 Impact

At Key Stage 4, outcomes for disadvantaged pupils were good. The additional funding provided demonstrable impact, with gaps in both attainment and progress narrowing.

Outcomes for disadvantaged pupils:

Number of disadvantaged pupils 20
Measure Outcome
Progress 8 -0.06
Average attainment 8 40.43
5+ English and Mathematics 38.10%
Ebacc 5+ 9.52%

At our primary phase, there are relatively small numbers of pupils eligible for the Pupil Premium in each year group and therefore statistical comparison by group is less reliable. Overall outcomes for disadvantaged pupils over the past three years have been good.

An internal Pupil Premium review was conducted in 2018 to ensure that provision is appropriate and outcomes continue to rise. An external Pupil Premium review has been commissioned for the early Spring term of this academic year. Data tracking indicates that outcomes at Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 2 will continue to improve in 2019.

The school has deliberately targeted support at all year groups. Internal tracking indicates that gaps in achievement are narrowing in the cohorts currently on roll.
