Pupil Premium

Hampton College Pupil Premium Report for 2015/16 Academic Year

The College received £264,817 Pupil Premium funding for the Academic Year 2015/16. In addition the school received £10,500 Year 7 Catch-Up Funding.

Hampton College is a 4-19 comprehensive school offering places to pupils of all aptitudes and abilities. The development of the whole child is a major emphasis in the school. We aim to enable young people to achieve outstanding levels of achievement.

High expectations of work and behaviour, with a firm, fair code of conduct are applied consistently and these are understood by students, teachers and parents.

As members of a comprehensive school, students have full access to and experience of the curriculum regardless of race, class, gender, physical ability and religious belief. The College promotes a sense of self-esteem, responsibility and tolerance in young people. It values and challenges the individual so that they achieve the highest levels of attainment whatever their starting point.

Pupil Premium is therefore a key resource for ensuring the realisation of this inclusive and aspirational ethos. Pupil Premium is paid to schools for students who are: recorded as being eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) in the last 6 years, who are ‘Looked After’ or who have a parent serving in the armed forces. Our Pupil Premium for 2015-16 is made up of 24.6% of the student population.

Pupil Premium Funds for 2015-16 were allocated as follows:

Staffing £197,691

Alternative Provision & Specialist Tutors £ 34,206

Direct Individual Support £ 20,000

Counselling & Support Services £ 10,095

Family Support Services £ 10,640

Targeted Sports Intervention £ 2,685

There was a small unspent carry forward of £3,549

How Pupil Premium funding was used in 2015/16

In addition, to ensure value for money and support we have allocated staff time for:

  • Tracking the prior attainment, current and future attainment of these students;
  • Tracking and supporting good attendance;
  • Provision mapping for all SEN students to ensure they are supported in making progress with their learning (a large proportion of Pupil Premium students also require SEN support);
  • Additional careers advice to raise the aspirations, motivation and attainment and reduce the chance of NEET (Not in Employment Education or Training).

Pupil Premium Impact Statement

Hampton College is proud of how it supports the experiences, learning and outcomes of pupil premium learners. Examples of how funds have been targeted effectively, in bespoke packages, are detailed in our case studies. These case studies also provide an insight into how we aim to support disadvantaged learners to have positive experiences in school, in ways which are not always readily quantifiable, but have a tremendous impact on an individual level.

In areas where measurement is possible and appropriate, outcomes for disadvantaged learners are scrutinised and discussed by staff at all levels and governors. The achievement and progress of disadvantaged learners are regularly tracked as part of our on-going monitoring systems at all phases. Timely interventions are planned and delivered, where necessary.

At secondary phase, we believe a key indicator of the impact of our pupil premium spending is seen in the KS4 outcomes of disadvantaged students. In 2014, the school received recognition of its work with disadvantaged students in the form of a letter from David Laws MP. Hampton College was recognised as ‘one of the most improved schools in the country in terms of attainment and value added progress of disadvantaged pupils since 2011.’ In 2016, disadvantaged students out performed non disadvantaged students, in terms of their progress KS2-4 (2016 Progress 8 score of +0.24). The 2016 GCSE English outcomes for disadvantaged students were exceptional (in the top 10% of schools) with the Progress 8 score being +0.81.

In our primary phase, at EYFS, gaps between all learners and disadvantaged learners are generally small and in Mathematics FSM learners out performed non disadvantaged learners in 2015. At Key Stage One, disadvantaged children achieve broadly in line with their non-disadvantaged peers, with only one or two pupils not yet reaching the expected level in Mathematics, Reading and Writing in 2016.

Pupil Premium Provision for 2016/17

Our initial allocation of Pupil Premium for 2016/17 is £253,770. In addition we will receive Year 7 Catch-Up funding and funding for Looked After Students.

We will continue to deliver the provision and resources detailed for 2015/16 through our Pupil Premium allocations in 2016/17. We will also continue to review requirements and specific needs of all of our students and put into place appropriate support as identified. In addition we intend to use Pupil Premium funding to:

  • Increase the number of teaching groups in Year 9 to allow for smaller class sizes.
  • Develop literacy interventions across the primary phase, to be supported by dedicated staff CPD
  • Peer mentoring and use of Sixth Form students to provide academic and motivational support for KS4 students
