Pupil Premium Projected Expenditure 2017/2018

Outcomes 2016/17

Pupil Premium funded small groups and 1:1 tuition with the Flexible Learning Programme (FLP) staff for 22 pupils.

Ten of these pupils joined Kilgarth late in their careers. Difficult to engage or at risk of permanent exclusion from other schools, they would not have accessed secondary education at KS4 without the FLP.

All of these pupils were transported to and from school or their vocational provider by FLP staff who also offered support on a daily basis.  This resulted in attendance for Y11 FLP pupils of 76.3% and Y10 FLP pupils 68.4%.  Attendance across the whole school stands at 81.3% at the time of writing.

All FLP pupils had access to a range of accredited qualifications, including GCSE English and Maths, L1 and L2 vocational courses of their choosing and functional skills.

All FLP pupils except one gained at least one qualification as a result of their academic study and vocational training.

27 pupils received regular monitoring, counselling or both to help with a variety of SEMH issues.

The school’s reward based, no sanctions approach to behaviour modification saw exclusion rates maintained at the previous year’s lower level – a fall of 18% since 2014/15.

Outcomes 2015/2016

  • 30 pupils attended vocational placements on a daily or weekly basis.  They were all transported to and from the providers, often picked up from home.
  • All of our leavers gained at least one qualification as a result of their vocational programme or input from our Flexible Learning Programme.
  • Exclusions reduced as a result of our newly developed system for behaviour modification and management – from 141 days in 2014/2015 to 108.5 days in 2015/2016.


  • 35 students benefitted from mentoring, counselling or both.
  • 18 students benefitted from assessment and planning from the Speech and Language service.
  • 7 students received one to one intervention to improve their basic skills.
  • A member of staff was allocated to support students in challenging circumstances get to school each morning; this resulted in an improvement in attendance for this group by 2%, and one pupil’s attendance increased by 28%.
