  1. Outcomes

 

Desired outcomes and how they will be measured

Success criteria

  1.  

To further improve the teaching and learning across the school to ensure that the gaps for pupil premium students in both progress and attainment is closing continue to close.

 

Tracking data and GCSE results which will show the gaps closing. Where they are not, interventions are put into place and the impact of these are regularly monitored.

Monitoring of homework provision, regularity, appropriateness, quality of provision and quality of feedback is in line or better than those pupils who do not qualify for pupil premium.

Support with and the monitoring of the provision of homework.

  1.  

More students who are eligible for pupil premium funding are able to extra curricular activities.

Progress 8 scores for the most able disadvantaged is in line with their none disdavataged peers.

Pupils eligible for pupil premium identified as high attaining from KS2 levels / raw scores make as much progress as ‘other’ pupils identified as high attaining, across the school, so that they are on or above track to achieve their high targets and the end of KS4. Where they are not, interventions are put into place and the impact of these are regularly monitored.

  1.  

The increase in the literacy skills means that this is no longer a barrier to the learning of the pupil premium students.

The reading and spelling ages of this cohort of students is in line with those of the none disadvantaged students.

  1.  

Improved behaviour of the pupil premium students both in and outside of the classroom.

 

Fewer behaviour incidents recorded for these pupils on the school system.

  1.  

Improved attendance for all the pupil premium students.

Overall attendance among students eligible for Pupil Premium improves.

The homework needs to be of a good quality and relevant to the outcome to be achieved.

Use of period 6 to further support and assist pupils to do extra work and/or catch up work thereby assisting them with their studies.

In addition, there will be the opportunity for the students to do further work before school, at break and lunchtimes.

Impact after the review

Improved behaviour of the pupil premium students both in and outside of the classroom.

 

Meetings with the careers advisor.

Trips to colleges in school time.

One to one meetings after each round of tracking.

Provide incentives to promote good behaviour.

 

EEF

Behaviour interventions; Moderate impact for moderate cost, based on extensive evidence. +4 months.

“it is clear that reducing challenging behaviour in schools can have a direct and lasting effect on pupils’ learning.” (EEF Toolkit)

“Interventions which target social and emotional learning seek to improve attainment by improving the social and emotional dimensions of learning, as opposed to focusing directly on the academic or cognitive elements of learning.” (EEF Toolkit)

Mentoring; Low impact for moderate costs based on moderate evidence. +1

School-based mentoring programs have on average been less effective than community-based approaches, possibly because school-based mentoring can result in fewer opportunities for young people to develop more lasting and trusting relationships with adult role models. However, positive benefits such as improved attitudes to school, better attendance and improved behaviour have been reported. (EEF)

Two schemes for incentivising pupil effort have been researched by the EEF. The first provided a financial incentive, while the second provided an incentive of a trip or event. The research identified an improvement in classwork effort across English, Maths and Science for the group who received the financial incentive, but no long term impacts on GCSE results were identified for students on either scheme. It seems that material incentives might have increased motivation, but this did not translate into better grades.
