 Pupil Premium Review

The pupil premium review was undertaken in February 2015 and identified the following action points. The school’s responses are also indicated below:

The following action points were agreed:

  • to develop a system to record the range of interventions for each students receiving the pupil premium and map their progress against targets.  This system to be used for all students on the pupil premium, Years 7- 11 inclusive.
  • Heads of department to monitor these students’ progress in their specific subject area allowing the two to dovetail so that senior leaders and Heads of Subject are working concurrently to maximise each student’s achievement.
  • Year Co-ordinators to utilise this information in identifying underachievement.
  • to further develop the role of the Pupil Premium Leader in utilising the data that is generated and lead intervention programmes in a strategic way so that the impact of each strategy can be gauged and staff and resources utilised in an effective and efficient manner.
  • to further develop high quality support from trained experts in their field for students suffering from family breakdown, illness, bereavement, drug or alcohol abuse in the family, young carers and those at risk of sexual abuse.

Longer term developments for consideration:

  • to develop the role and expertise of the school librarian, enhance literacy and reading, increase the ‘footfall’ in the library and introduce a regular calendar of events and competitions that encourage students to read for enjoyment.
