The P8 score for disadvantaged students has increased to 0.78 – students at Ashcroft average three quarters of a grade higher than the national figure for all students.  The gap between disadvantaged and “all” is a little larger than in previous years, but well below the historic national averages.  Most pupil premium students make excellent progress at Ashcroft; our challenge is to make sure that all do.

The attainment 8 score shows a relatively small gap between disadavantaged students and the overall figure – larger than in previous years, but considerably lower than the national difference in the previous year.  The attainment of pupil premium students at Ashcroft is equivalent to the attainment of the English national average.

The government has changed the method for recording and reporting student progress and attainment, no longer reporting the former by way of levels of progress and as such, national comparisons by this method are now not possible. The table below shows how ATA compared by this measure last year and also how it achieved in the current year without national comparison. Even without this, it is evident that ATA has been highly successful in establishing a learning environment that develops and extends all students, whilst minimising the so-called attainment gap between disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged students.
