Pupil Premium Strategy 2020-1 (PP strategy)
IT’S ALL ABOUT PROGRESS
PP students are our first focus
The Purpose of the PP Strategy
The purpose of the strategy is to raise the attainment of our students who are identified as Pupil Premium Students, with a particular focus on the HPA students.
At Hornchurch High School, approximately one third of students are classified as Pupil Premium Students. This is approximately 250 students across the school, with about 50 in each year group.
How do we identify the students who would benefit from PPI Strategy?
1. Look at levels of progress for all PP students
2. Look for trends in the data which indicate a possible issue with attainment
3. Look for individual students within that trend who are actually underachieving
4. Look at each student on the target list, and decide on a student by student basis who will benefit from the PP strategy
5. We discuss the attendance of the group, and intervene / support where possible.
What does the Strategy offer to support the students?
Teacher focus is directed to the data analysis and in-class support is put in place for students who are failing to make expected progress.
After school interventions and small group work are put in place where possible.
Areas of weakness are re-tested on a cyclical basis to improve outcomes for each student
If there are patterns of general trends of underachievement in certain year groups or departments, steps are taken to remove barriers to learning
Ongoing attendance support is in place across the school to ensure good attendance to lessons
Additional tuition, educational resources are available to identified students
Ongoing CPD is focused on pedagogy to promote good progress in the classroom
How do we know if the strategy is successful?
The attainment of PP students will improve, particularly that of the More Able in the cohort.
The attendance of PP students will improve, closing the gap with non PP students.
Examples of trends are:
- A group of Year 8 PP girls are underperforming across several subjects
- There are a group of Year 9 PP boys who have falling attendance
Each scenario should be picked up by HOY and acted upon after discussion with MNE
