Use of Pupil Premium Funding for 2015-16

Details of how the pupil premium allocation was spent

In 2015-2016 St Anne’s school allocated £225,900 to pupil premium activities. These focused on a variety of interventions to support the learning of its pupils. Pupils were identified for extra individual tutoring in English and/or maths in the run up to the summer exams.  Intervention classes were in place throughout the year. Our planned revision timetable ensured that subjects did not clash so pupils could attend the revision sessions they needed. Academic Mentoring of targeted pupils gave them the opportunity to identify their goals, barriers to those, and how they and the school could address those. This helped ensure that PP funding was spent where it was needed: on needs identified at an individual pupil level.

We extended the exam workshop programme to include most subjects during the study leave period as an opportunity for individual targeted revision.

Revision books as well as other text books were bought in to aid classroom learning to help personal revision for a variety of subjects. Other resources were identified through the Academic Mentoring programme.

The YMCA continues to work with the school to support pupils across year groups through one-to-one mentoring as well as team building and self-esteem opportunities at Fairthorne Manor.

The following gives attainment and progress data on our Pupil Premium pupils. National data is not often available at the start of an academic year and will be updated as it becomes available. Where comparisons are made to national figures, the most recent data will be used.

Information on the impact of that expenditure on eligible and other pupils

As the way that schools are measured has changed significantly in 2016, it is no longer possible to compare previous measures to national values. For this reason, 2016 information is stated separately from 2013-2015.

Gap closed?

St. Anne’s has closed the gap between our PP pupils and other pupils nationally between 2013 and 2015. In 2016, our pupils achieved 71% 5A*-C including En/Ma. There is no national data to compare this to, but assuming similar national values to the last three years, we have closed the gap completely.

The national aim is for pupils to make 2/3rds of a level or grade a year (this equals 4 points). The table above shows that, for Years 7-11 last year, there was very little difference between the progress of PP pupils and other pupils at St. Anne’s.
