Budget Allocation and Impact of expenditure for 2015-2016

Pupil Premium amount allocated                                      £111,230

Year 7 Catch up (received March 2016)                          £15,500

Children in Care additional funding                                  £2,392                     

                                                                                                TOTAL          £129,629

The key aim for our allocation of the Pupil Premium funding is, as far as is possible, to diminish the difference between our ‘disadvantaged’ students and that of those who are ‘non disadvantaged’.  The most important measurement for us is to compare disadvantaged groups (by ability low, middle and high) to the national averages for these ability groupings.  As we move into Year 2016/7 we will be comparing our differences in these terms.  In Academic year 2015-16 we set the following targets which have been reviewed at the end of this budget breakdown.

Priorities and Targets for 2015-16

  1. Ensure that the gap between disadvantaged and non -disadvantaged students in English and Maths does not go above 10%.
  2. Ensure the Progress 8 Gap between disadvantaged and non -disadvantaged PP is no greater than 0.5.
  3. Ensure that ‘Most Able’ disadvantaged students reach the higher GCSE grades (at least a B) in English and Maths.
  4. Improve the attendance of disadvantaged students to close 2015 gap of 0.7% for this group compared to national average.
  5. Maintain and further increase the positive gap of exclusions (included repeated) for this group compared to the national average. School 11.28% V NA of 16.47%.
  6. To ensure the gap between disadvantaged and non -disadvantaged at KS3 in each year group will be no more than 8%.
