The allocation for 2012/13 is £142,000. This additional funding is being used to support pupils through intervention programmes and the employment of Education Support Assistants.
The impact of the 2011-12 pupil premium which was used to fund 1;1 tuition, mentoring and after school revision classes can be seen from the following measures related to the 2012 GCSE results:
- The percentage of pupils eligible for free school meals (FSM) who gained 5A*-C grades including English and Maths was 46.4% compared to the national average of 35.8% (+10.6). For pupils not in receipt of FSM the figure was 66.3% compared to a national average of 62.1% (+4.2), This not only shows that FSM pupils at the College performed better than those nationally but also that the gap between FSM and non FSM pupils at the College is less than that nationally (19.9 compared to the national picture of 26.3)
- Similarly, the capped average points score per pupil (best 8 subjects) was 302.3 for FSM pupils at the College compared to a national average for FSM pupils of 297.4 (+4.9). This compares to 350.9 for non FSM pupils at the College and 350.0 for those nationally (+0.9). This again shows that FSM pupils at the College performed better than those nationally and that the gap between FSM and non FSM pupils at the College is narrower than that nationally (48.6 for the College, 52.6 national).
