following identified groups of students.
• Students who are currently receiving free school meals.
• Students who are not currently receiving free school meals but have done so in the
last six years.

*Figures currently based on SISRA collaborative data

In 2017/18 Pupil Premium gaps narrowed across the academy and progress of disadvantaged students improved by approximately half a grade from 2016/17. Therefore it can be assumed that the Pupil Premium strategy was effective in closing the gaps in attainment and progress.

Whilst some of the narrowing of the gaps can be attributed to a slight decline in Non PP progress, all areas, with the exception of Maths, are showing improvements.

It should be noted that the prior attainment of the 2017/18 cohort was significantly lower than that of the 2016/17 group and therefore caution should be used when comparing the attainment of these students between the two years.

The 2017/18 strategy has had a significant impact on the progress of our disadvantaged students.

The strategy was detailed in it content which was based on research from local and national contexts.

The 2018/19 strategy must now look at how we can engage our disadvantaged students more in Maths and ensure that these gaps are closing in next year’s results.
