Impact of Pupil Premium 2015 2016

 

In 2015 2016 the school had an allocation of £54,150 relating to 47 pupils who receive free school meals including 4 looked after pupils.

 

At Welcombe Hills we accept responsibility for those pupils recognised as disadvantaged and are committed to addressing the barriers to learning whether pastoral, social, emotional or academic needs. Every pupil in school is valued, respected and entitled to develop to their full potential irrespective of disadvantage.

 

Historically it was clear from data sets that there was little or no gap between pupils who are eligible for Pupil Premium and their peers. This is largely attributable to personalised timetables, interventions, therapies and tailored support. Generally the pupil’s Special Educational Need being the barrier to learning. In 2014 2015 Comparison and Analysis of Special Pupil Attainment (CASPA) data shows that a gap had arisen between pupils eligible for Pupil Premium and those that are not, we closed this gap to 2% by July 2016.

The impact of interventions is tracked individually or by group. Class teachers complete a pupil intervention plan and report back termly at pupil progress meetings.
