Pupil Premium review of spending 2018-19

In 2018-19, Fullhurst Community College had 530 students eligible for Pupil Premium.  £935 was received per student, resulting in £495,550 total Pupil Premium funding received.  The Pupil Premium funding for 2018-19 was spent so as to overcome four named barriers, with the following intended outcomes:

  1. Improved attendance of disadvantaged students, further closing the gap relative to other students in college.
  2. Improved behaviour of disadvantaged students, further closing the gap relative to other students in college.
  3. Improved reading skills of disadvantaged students, and engagement in reading.
  4. Disadvantaged students to be more motivated to aim high, and accelerate their progress so as they can attain well.

The impact of the spending in relation to these intended outcomes is split into 'quality of teaching for all', 'targeted support' and 'other approaches'.

Quality of teaching for all
 

  • Analysis of behaviour data in school shows that the gap between DD/NDD incidents of poor behaviour closed e.g. FTE for DD 2018-19 was 13.2% (national DD 24.9%) with only a 2.5% gap to NDD. Gap in incidents of poor behaviour closed to 5.6%. As such, the overall success criteria for this desired outcome was met.
  • Attitude to Learning (ATL) gaps closed in all year groups in 2018-19, relative to the previous year for the same year group. Therefore, this shows that the behaviour of DD students improved over the course of the academic year, relative to other students.e.g Yr 11 average
  • Progress data from 2019 outcomes showed 10 subjects to be above national expectation.  
  • Overall progress 8 of DD students dropped from +0.09 to -0.28, additionally with 5 outliers removed this figure moves to -0.06. This compared to national P8 for DD students at -0.45.
  • FFTD CVA for all DD students puts P8 at +0.16.
  • Interventions on the whole effective this academic year, as seen by the progress made by DD students across the year groups. This includes outcomes from the Accelerated Reader programme, which showed the intervention to be effective; and also results of students taught by the Intervention Tutor for English, with English Language and Literature GCSE results for DD students close to the school’s aspirational targets and with minimal gaps relative to other students.

Targeted support
 

  • Outcomes of DD/SEND students in 2019 results were +0.19 better than 2018, with attainment remaining the same. As such there was a significant closing of the gap to NND / SEND student with the gap in 2019 being only 0.03, in 2018 this was 0.31 of a gap.
  • Analysis of behaviour data in school shows that the gap between DD/NDD incidents of poor behaviour closed e.g. FTE for DD 2018-19 was 13.2% (national DD 24.9%) with only a 2.5% gap to NDD. Gap in incidents of poor behaviour closed to 5.6%. As such, the overall success criteria for this desired outcome was met.
  • Attendance figures for DD students saw an overall absence of 7.5% compared to national figures for absence of DD at 8.1% for 2017-18. This was in improvement of 0.5%.
  • Other proxy measures of the success of these outcomes show there to be no significant difference between number of DD students who became Fullhurst Graduate Students, compared to other students.
  • Attendance at Parents’ Evening rose on average by 11% with a significant increase in parental engagement for DD which helped support improved behaviour and attendance.
  • Year 7 whole school reading homework saw over 95% completion rates with a 2% gap between DD and NDD.

(£118, 055)

Other approaches 

  • DD NEET figures for 2018 are 3.4% ( 3 students) to be better than the 9.0% which occurred in 2017.Projected DD NEET figures for 2019 are 3.6% (3 students), with NDD 4.0%
  • 100% of the year ten DD students who were involved in the Brilliant Club would recommend it to other students, and also 100% now aspire to continue onto University study in the future.
  • Feedback from the year ten students from their Work Experience placements shows that 88% of students now feel more positive about the world of work and that 78% are now more motivated to work harder in school.
  • Pledge activities to boost cultural capital demonstrate clear uptake from DD students:
