Key Stage(s)


1:1 Tuition – Maths and English




£26,351.33 (2015-2016)


3 / 4

For A*-C attainment at KS4, the gap has closed to 11% in English (2014: 27%) and 6% in Maths (2014: 25%). For 3 Levels of Progress in English the gap closed to 12% (2014: 23%) and in Maths to 8% (2014: 22%). For the 2 looked after students, they both achieved 5+A*-C including English and Maths. One made more than expected progress in both English and Maths and the other made 5 levels of progress in Maths and expected progress in English.

This provision has been reviewed and monitoring is in place to ensure 1:1 effectiveness.

Easter revision programme








85% of Year 11 accessed revision sessions put on by staff for the majority of subjects during Easter 2015. Overall school achievement rose by 11% to 59% which is above the National Average for the first time in the school's history. The gap closed for 5+A*-C (including both English and Maths) to 12 % (2014: 26%) - contributing to the closing of the gap by a further 1% from Progress Check 4 to the results.

This programme has been reviewed and a programme is planned for Easter 2016.

Year 6 transition and Summer School

£4,200.00 (2014)






From student voice feedback and parental review meetings, student transition was successful and effective. Additional baseline data is added to KS2 test data in order to give a clearer picture of starting points for pupils. Summer School funding was successfully applied for and places allocated. Student and parent feedback is overwhelmingly positive. All students are now attending regularly and performing well against targets.

In 2015-2016, the school is working even more closely with feeder primary schools to establish better curriculum links as well as to share student information and progress data.
