Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium funding is provided to support children who are entitled to free school meals, have been in receipt of free school meals in the last 6 years, are children of service personnel, cared for children, children who are adopted from care or have special guardianship.

The funding is provided to help these children to make progress in school and to fulfil their potential academically and socially and emotionally.

At Malbank we take care to ensure that this fund is being used to have a positive impact on progress by carrying out regular and robust reviews of the interventions that are put into place.

Impact of Pupil Premium funding 2015-16

In 2015-16 we were able to continue to successfully implement strategies to support Pupil Premium students to ensure that the students continued to make progress. This year we replicated a successful initiative by employing a Maths Learning Support Assistant to specifically work with our Pupil Premium students, as in the English department. We also piloted an initiative of employing a member of staff to work with our students on responding to feedback, which has proved to have a positive impact on the outcomes for our students.

In 2015-16 there has been a 17% increase in the number of Pupil Premium students achieving 5 GCSE's at grade C or above, including English and Maths. The number of Pupil Premium students achieving at least a grade C in Maths also increased by 10%, with 53% achieving at least a grade C. There has also been an increase of 13% in the number of Pupil Premium Students achieving 5 GCSE's at grades A-C.

The gap between Pupil Premium Students and non-Pupil Premium students at GCSE has reduced from 37% to 26%, narrowed by 11%.

The Pupil Premium students in Year 10 are also making good progress, with 72% of Pupil Premium students on track to meet their GCSE target grades in English.

Again, our Year 7 Pupil Premium students have made a great start to their secondary education. By the end of the academic year the average progress made by our Pupil Premium students in English, Maths and Science was above expectations.

Our Year 8 students have built on their hard work in year 7, with 79% of Pupil Premium students meeting their progress targets in English (an increase of 4% on last year's Year 7) and 82% meeting their progress targets in Maths (an increase of 22% on last year's Year 7).
