The strategic plan for pupil premium will focus on three main areas to close the gap between PP and non-PP students:

  1. Getting ready to learn
  2. Academic attainment, achievement and progress
  3. Enrichment

Funding will be allocated to students who qualify for pupil premium i.e. those who receive FSM, (or have received FSM in the last 6 years, referred to as Ever6), students in care, (continuously for more than 6 months), students who have been adopted and those from families in active service with the armed forces.

In 2015, Nobel has been allocated £209,440*

Funding will be allocated to support the following interventions:

The Sutton Trust / Education Endowment Foundation research has shown that the following interventions have moderate to high impact on student progress and are incorporated in the Nobel strategic pupil premium plan:

  • 1:1 and small group tuition
  • Technology to support students’ learning
  • Stretch and challenge activities (such as summer schools)
  • Peer tutoring
  • Marking and feedback
  • Supporting social / emotional development and well-being of students

Closing the gap

In 2013 the gap between PP and non-PP students in terms of achievement was 36%.  This reduced to 18% in 2014. Results for 2015 are estimated to show this gap reducing to 10%.

The school’s ‘raising attainment programme’ and intervention panel will rigorously review and monitor the progress of all PP students.  Students who are not making expect progress will be the focus of additional support and intervention.

Monitoring and measuring impact

The school will use performance indicators, including in-house tracking data, Raise On-Line, marking and feedback and the PASS survey to measure the impact of interventions on student outcomes and well-being.

*Any additional funding received in year will be allocated to the most appropriate intervention at the time.  i.e. the intervention that is having the biggest impact on student attainment and progress as recognised by our monitoring and data programmes.

Pupil Premium Report 2016 to 2017

Year 7 Catch-up Premium

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives schools additional funding to support year 7 students who have not achieved at least a level 4 in reading (English) and/or maths at the end of Key Stage 2. The funding aims to provide support to accelerate the learning of identified students, enabling them to narrow the gap between their performance and that of their peers.

In March 2016, the school was allocated a total of £15,289 for our students who had not reached level 4 in English or maths.

The school will spend this allocation on supporting students through the foundation group programme. Students are individually assessed and given intensive one-to-one and small group tuition. Using our catch-up and study group programmes, students are supported to increase their levels and are able to access the mainstream curriculum more effectively.

Students are also supported through the Reading Leaders Programme, TA led lunchtime / after school sessions and our ‘Nobel Extra’ holiday catch-up programme.

The school regularly monitors the progress of these students.

Current data shows that the expected progress that these students will make by the end of the year will be between 4 months and 3 ½ years.

Support will remain in place for these students as they enter year 8 to ensure they continue to make good progress.
