Impact of the Pupil Premium Grant on Outcomes 2017 – 2019 at Moss Park Junior School

Academic Outcomes - Headlines from FFT Live 2018

 (this is one of the DFE accredited providers for data analysis, including self-evaluation and target setting)

Progress

  • The ‘Pupil Progress in Average Scaled Score (Reading and Maths combined)’ measure showed that all groups of pupils at Moss Park Junior School made better than national average progress
  • Pupils from the FSM group (5) were the highest performing group out of 25 groups for this measure in Year 6 2018
  • Pupils from the FSM in last 6 years (12 pupils) were the 3rd highest group for this measure in 2018
  • Pupils from FSM Ever (13 pupils) were the 7th highest performing group in 2018

Attainment

  • The average scaled score for FSM pupils was higher than that of non FSM pupils and also shows an upward trend
  • The Average Scaled Score for FSM (in last 6 years) in Reading & Maths was 105 against 107.6 for pupils who were not in receipt of FSM in the last 6 years, BUT when SEN/D pupils (MLD) are taken out, the average scaled score of this FSM (in last 6 years) group rises to 110, showing that this group actually outperformed the other pupils

Pastoral Outcomes

  • Attendance of our Pupil Premium children in 2017-2018 was 96.05% (52 pupils) against 97% (209 pupils) for non-PPG pupils. This is a smaller than average difference. Further analysis show that were there were classes with gaps, the Educational Welfare Team and other agencies were involved with these individual pupils, with a positive impact on punctuality and attendance by the end of the year.
  • There was no difference between unauthorised absences for either group; which for both groups were below national figures.  
  • Persistent Absenteeism in the Y6 cohort was 3% - 2% lower than national
  • Persistent Absenteeism amongst our Pupil Premium group was 3.8%, well below this group nationally
  • Analysis of Club registers shows that virtually all our PPG pupils attended at least two after school clubs in 2017-18, with a minority (30%) attending three or more. This was as a result of our prioritised invites and free places
  • All but one of our PPG Y6 pupils attended our residential trip to Robinwood
  • These outcomes demonstrate the effectiveness of our pastoral systems, including our Breakfast Club and work with Trafford pastoral agencies to improve attendance and well-being
