Monitoring and evaluation

How we ensure that we are monitoring and evaluating the impact of our work to improve outcomes and chances for pupil premium students:

2016-17

We continue to work with the ACE partnership to further develop, moderate and embed the pathway model to show the attainment and progress of students across the curriculum. 

Pupil premium students continue to show a good level of attainment when measured against the FFT20 pathway targets. In English and science the expected number of pupil premium students were working at a secure level or above according to the FFT20 predictions, whilst in mathematics 24.3% of pupil premium students reached secure or better in the KS3 summative assessments compared with 54% in their teacher assessments. This is a focus and rigorous and robust measures are being implemented to ensure not only pupil premium students but all students are prepared and ready to achieve success in the end of KS3 assessments in June 2018. 

Final teacher assessments against FFT20 pathway targets showed that large percentages of pupil premium students are on track or above where they are estimated to be, showing a good level of progress through the key stage. 

2015-16

National curriculum levels no longer existed, so, through work within the ACE partnership, we developed a pathway model to show the attainment and progress of students across the curriculum.

Pupil premium students showed a good level of attainment when measured against the FFT20 pathway targets. In English, the expected number of pupil premium students were working at a secure level or above according to the FFT20 predictions, whilst in mathematics and science, 17% more pupil premium students attained secure or above compared to target pathways.

Final teacher assessments against FFT20 pathway targets show that large percentages of pupil premium students are on track or above where they are estimated to be, showing a good level of progress through the key stage. 

 

2014-15

Pupil premium students made (on average) better progress than the national expectation - 1.74 levels progress compared to 1.5 levels progress (expected).

Pupil premium students made approximately 0.21 levels progress less than students who are not deemed to be pupil premium. This equates to one term behind after 3 years.


Additional data to evaluate effectiveness of pupil catchup premium:

Average progress of PCP students was 1 level in current year 8 (previous year 7) – expected was 0.6 (compared to national)

Minimum reading age improvement was 4 months (above expected) – (2014-2015)

Maximum reading age improvement was 5 years 2 months (2014-2015)
