How many pupil premium students are on roll at Outwood Academy Ripon and how much funding does the school receive?
For 2017/18, we have received £103,785. The Illustration of Pupil Premium Grant is published on www.gov.uk. The cohort of pupil premium students at Outwood Academy Ripon is detailed in the table below. This equates to 27% as of 02/05/2017.
In 2016/17 we were allocated £98,175. We received this money in regular installments and these funds are in addition to the main school budget (the general annual grant).
At Outwood Academy Ripon, we have many robust intervention strategies which are designed to support each individual student to achieve their potential. We believe that these strategies are diminishing the difference between different groups of students and fulfil one of our core aims “to raise standards for all students by sustaining and enhancing performance and to develop the whole child”. We believe that this is a particular strength of the school.
Below is a table of strategies that we use to support students and intervene where required. The Pupil Premium is used to support all of these strategies:
We will continue to provide the support listed above however we are further developing out interventions in the areas below:

In 16-17 financial year, Outwood Academy Ripon received £16,423 Y7 Catch-up premium. We identified a total of 80 Y7 students (academic year 16-17) who did not achieve the expected scaled score of 100 in either reading or maths.
In 16-17 financial year, this funding was used towards Lexia, Accelerated Reader books, Passport Maths, 1:1 tuition and tailored intervention packages through the HUB.

In 2016 to 2017 schools will receive the same overall amount of year 7 catch-up premium funding they received in 2015 to 2016, adjusted to reflect the percentage change in the size of their year 7 cohort, based on the October 2016 census. We received £16,423 in March 2017.
We have identified 62 Y7 students who did not reach the expected scaled score of 100 in reading and 48 Y7 students who did not reach the expected scaled score of 100 in maths. This is a total of 80 students who did not achieve in either or both. Baseline assessments and analysis of KS2 tests will reveal the areas that students require further support with.
The Literacy and Numeracy Catch-up Strategy will be reviewed in September 2018.
