Overview of the school
What is Pupil Premium funding and why do schools get it?
The Pupil Premium is a sum of additional funding, given to all schools for each student who is (or has been in recent years) in receipt of free school meals. Increased additional funding is also given to students who are looked after in care, due to their disadvantaged circumstances. The reasons that schools are given this additional funding are very clear. Whilst many students who receive free school meals do well, national statistics show that there is an achievement gap across the country when those from disadvantaged backgrounds are compared with their peers. This is the case at the end of primary and secondary school, and can be seen in the 2013 national data graph (left):
How many students does the school receive Pupil Premium funding for and how much funding does this generate?
In the academic year 2015-16 the school received additional Pupil Premium funding to the sum of £425,038
The figure for 2016-17 is £423,585. Below is a summary of the number and percentages of Pupil Premium students in each year group currently at Conisborough College (academic year 2016-17)
What has Conisborough spent their Pupil Premium funding on and what has been the impact?
Below shows the key strategies that our Pupil Premium funding was spent on in 2015-16, including the impact of each initiative. The number of students achieving A*-C grades in English increased again but the drop in maths was disappointing and is a whole school priority for this year, new appointments have been made in the maths department which include a new head of department and an AST.

As part of our post Ofsted action plan to 'raise outcomes for all pupils', we are investigating how Pupil Premium students feel about their school life, and how they cope with completing homework tasks outside of school. Overall, we are interested in learning about how Pupil Premium students feel school is going for them, and how they feel we can improve their experiences. By improving the school experiences of Pupil Premium students we aim to ensure that students reach their full potential and don't fall behind at an early age.
