Pupil Premium Performance


From 2016, the Government have stated that school Pupil Premium (PP) cohort’s outcomes will be compared to national non-Pupil Premium students with the intent of closing this difference.

The figures below indicate progress against national figures for our Pupil Premium cohorts.

Academic Year 21/22 (60 students)

The Year 11 results show that

  • Pupil premium students with attendance greater than 90% performed in line with national expectations
  • The top third of PP students averaged 0.58 in terms of progress
  • However, those with persistent attendance did not perform as well.  54% of Pupil Premium students had an attendance of under 85% contributing to a negative VA
  • The data shows that Pupil Premium students who attend school regularly benefit from the Quality First Teaching, targeted academic interventions and the wide range of pastoral support which is available across the years.

Our Year 11 PP cohort of 60 students (2022) included 58 with KS2 scores.

The PP cohort contained only one Higher attainer.  This student made excellent progress, outperforming non-disadvantaged peers.  The dominant factor for Middle and Lower attainers was the level of attendance. 

Academic Year 20/21 (54 students)

Our Year 11 PP cohort of 54 students was similar in terms of its structural make up to previous year groups.  It was largely White British, (29 students).  The group included 20 students who were judged to have low prior attainment, 30 as Middle prior attainment and 4 had High prior attainment. There were no published progress scores.

Three Pupil Premium students completed the Ebacc combination of subjects.

No students to our knowledge were NEETS, and many have gone on to do a variety of college courses and apprenticeships. Some have stayed on in our Post 16 centre. Nescot and Carshalton and Reigate Colleges remain the most popular college destination for students who decide not to remain with us at Post 16.
