PUPIL PREMIUM SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT EVALUATION 2016- 2017

VISION: Students achieve their God given potential regardless of their economic background.

PRESENT POSITION: Student achievement at St. Mark’s is outstanding. Pupil Premium students perform very well in comparison to national figures. RAISEonline 2015 shows that progress by FSM students (1051.8 ) is a significant plus and exceeds that of non FSM students (1036.4).The issue of the EBacc remains. The differing profiles of students in Years 7 to 11 and the needs of some individuals require different strategies.

 PUPIL PREMIUM EVALUATION 2016 - 2017


AIM: To reduce the gap by addressing inequalities that pupils face and raising the attainment of those students in low income families.

 OUTCOMES: Additional support strategies enabling every pupil, however financially disadvantaged, to:

  • Improve their levels of progress and attainment
  • Close attainment gaps
  • Have full access to the curriculum
  • Access  extra curricular provision

St. Mark’s was allocated £81,672.50 and we had 115 eligible students. (There is some movement in the course of the year on and off the PP list.) Interventions for each student were decided on a needs led basis. This meant that students were able to benefit from more than one intervention at any one time. The interventions varied from individual provision to groups to the whole school year.

The profile of the group was:

 

GENDER                   46% male            54% female

KEY STAGE             63% KS3             37% KS4

ETHNICITY             55% from ethnic minorities

EAL                            61%

SEND                         18%

MA                             17%

 

GCSE

There were 19 PP students in Year 11. They have made excellent progress and we expect that they have achieved above national results. Some key indicators are:

 

Basics Level (A*-C in English and Maths standard pass)   84%

Basics Level (A*-C in English and Maths strong pass)       68.4%

E-Bacc entered                                                                         84%

EBacc achieved                                                                        63%
