Individual teachers able to bid for PP funding to raise attainment in order to ‘close the gap’.

 

 

 

 

 

Deputy Principal responsible for teaching and learning through lesson study.

Over 80% of staff applied for £20 bids to facilitate wave one teaching and learning. As a result a larger of percentage of disadvantaged students participated in classroom and enrichment activities. Examples of successful initiatives include creating a competitive classroom climate linked to homework challenges to engage disadvantaged learners. However, the overall impact is difficult to quantify.

 

All teaching staff has lesson study as part of the college CPD programme and individual appraisal targets. 100% of staff achieved this appraisal target. The lesson study programme was not founded on pedagogical and proven ‘closing the gap’ research. However, results from 2016-17 indicted a positive trend in closing the gap for disadvantaged learners.

 

 

 

 

 

Review this approach to allow a more strategic focus in order to specifically target individual students needs to close the gaps, raise the aspiration and progress of, and increase the culture capital of our most vulnerable learners.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Review whole college teaching and learning strategy in order to embrace and embed the most effective pedagogical research into our classrooms in order to close all gaps for our most vulnerable learners.

Cost
Ensure all KS4 PP students have a suitable place for independent study to maximise their progress / attainment. 5pm revision room for selected underperforming students. Individual students were targeted based on performance data and pastoral circumstances. As a result of this targeted intervention individual students, both PP and non-PP met their English and Maths targets. Additionally, middle and open bucket subject teachers had access to these students for targeted intervention when required. Review identification process through robust and objective data in order to quickly raise awareness of and give priority to our most vulnerable learners. £250
To ensure the progress of PP students in Maths and English is in line with that of their peers.

 

 

 

 

Maths and English Intervention Forms Students were identified for extra English and Maths support based on end of year 10 exams and data collection points.

Our overall data indicates Maths and English results are positive highlighting this as an effective intervention.

Review identification process to ensure these forms are fluid enough to meet the changing needs throughout the year of our most vulnerable learners.

 

N/A
To provide additional academic support in the lead up to summer examinations at an off-site location. Thorpe Park Structured weekend intervention with underperforming students at a hotel conference facility. Individual students were targeted based on performance data and pastoral circumstances.

 

This initiative has been in place for the past three years and has proven impact, as evidenced through a 3 year positive trend in our P8 figure which is currently 0.04.

Review the logistics, cost and timing to maximise student engagement for this provision, particularly for our vulnerable learners.

Desired outcome Chosen action / approach Estimated impact: Did you meet the success criteria? Include impact on pupils not eligible for PP, if appropriate. Lessons learned

(and whether you will continue with this approach)

Cost
To minimise any financial barriers to PP students attending trips or extra-curricular activities. PP funding used to increase number of enrichments / non-academic experiences available to PP students in school. In order to remove financial barriers, the college ensured that PP and non-PP students from all year groups accessed a variety of subsidised extra-curricular and enrichment activities to broaden their educational experiences.

Examples include Theatre Trips and the Lourdes Pilgrimage.

Review this approach to allow a more strategic focus on individual student needs, which is matched to the curriculum and closes attainment gaps by increasing the cultural capital experiences for our most vulnerable learners. £600
To reduce the difference in attendance between PP students and their peers. School minibus to assist attendance team. Our newly appointed attendance outreach worker and minibus driver visited homes in the new college minibus on a daily basis to provide challenge and support for our most vulnerable learners and their families.

Overall attendance figures for PP students increased by 1.5% from 2016-17. This equates to 998 additional days in school and over 5000 lessons.

Following a successful pilot year, continue to utilise the school minibus to further address attendance of vulnerable students. Ensure that the minibus driver and attendance outreach worker posts become permanent.
Minimise the differences in progress and attainment between PP students and their peers. Assistant Principal responsible for PP. New assistant Principal further raised the profile of outcomes for all vulnerable students through a variety of new strategic closing the gap initiatives.

These strategies included extending the Thorpe Park initiative to include all subject areas and

reviewing the whole college assessment cycle to ensure increased opportunities for examination practice to build resilience and confidence of our most vulnerable students.

Review SLT accountabilities in order to meet college priorities effectively and ensure that college resources are utilised more effectively in order the close the gap and improve outcomes for our most vulnerable students.
