Summary of outcomes during 2017-2018 – Year End 2017 Report…
- Disadvantaged (Pupil Premium) children are underperforming compared to Disadvantaged children nationally in all Key Stages and in all subject areas. In 2017, a greater proportion of Disadvantaged children nationally attained the expected standard with the largest differences for KS1 being in Reading and Maths (29% gap) and KS2 being Combined attainment (42% gap). The smallest differences in KS1 were in Writing (moderated by LA) with 15% gap and Maths at KS2 with 11% gap.
- Children attaining a Good Level of Development (GLD) in Early Years were also notably lower when compared with other Disadvantaged children locally (33.3% vs. 58.2% respectively).
- The attendance of pupils on the Pupil Premium Register is matched with non-Pupil Premium children (94.6% vs. 94.7% respectively). It is believed that this is as a direct result of pertinent and timely intervention from the Inclusion Team to ensure those Pupil Premium Children and their families who are assessed as to be ‘at risk’ from falling attendance percentages are supported in maintaining a good level of attendance.
- Incidents of challenge and emotional – trauma related behaviours has diminished over the year with high profile Disadvantaged children maintaining longer periods of unsupported time in class with higher levels of engagement and exposure to teaching as a result.
