Summary of outcomes during 2016-2017 – Year End 2016 Report…
- Cohort sizes for Pupil Premium (PP) eligible children indicate that numbers are reducing over time. From Reception to Year 3 the average cohort size is 20%; however this rises significantly in the remaining years with cohort sizes ranging from 36% (Year 5) up to 56% (Year 6)
- A ‘good level of development’ (GLD) was secured by more Pupil Premium eligible pupils in 2016 than in 2015 nationally. GLD attainment between Pupil Premium and Non Pupil Premium (NPP) children in school was broadly matched however attainment in Numbers will be a focus for academic year 2016-2017.
- Outcomes in Y1 phonics for pupils eligible for Pupil Premium improved during this academic year with 75% attaining the ‘Working At’ (WA) threshold as opposed to the 66% secured Nationally (2015).
- Average point score outcomes at the end of KS1 for pupils eligible for Pupil Premium clearly demonstrate levels of attainment which broadly match their Non-Pupil Premium eligible peers. Whilst a difference exists between PP and NPP children in the proportions of those attaining the newly determined ‘Working at Expected’ standard, no national or local figures are available in order for us to contextualise the difference. As the largest gap between peers in school is evident in the percentage of children attaining WA in writing, this will be a priority focus during academic year 2016-2017.
- Proportions of children attaining the ‘Expected’ standard at KS2 were higher amongst Pupil Premium children than Non Pupil Premium in Reading, Writing and Maths – this is a direct contrast to previous years’ where greater numbers of NPP children than PP children have secured the expected (Level 4) standard. Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling provided the only notable gap in 2016 attainment and will feature as a priority across KS2 from September 2016.
- All children were able to enjoy access to curriculum focussed trips and visits as a result of targeted Pupil Premium funding.
