Pupil Premium Reports
Seven New Pupil Premium Reports!
There are 7 new reports in Keypas covering EYFSP, Phonics, KS1 and KS2.
These reports are the first to feature our new design! Move away from drab, monochrome tables and let Nexus inject vibrant colour, a Nexus-themed font set and better layouts that aim to make the reports easier to read at a glance.
Each report has a (Beta) suffix, as we wanted to get membership feedback on these NCER specified reports. The national figures have NOT yet been included as we enter the 2015 data collection cycle to ensure the reports are accurate and allow a Local Authority to compare a school with an LA value prior to an emerging 2015 figure being stable.
- Go to the Keypas Dashboard and see them grouped together in your Favourite Reports widget.
Or alternatively, navigate to
Nexus > Keypas > Tree View > [Keystage] > Reports > [Report Name]
- EYFSP: Setting Summary Pupil Premium (Beta)
- Phonics: LA Summary Pupil Premium (Beta)
- Phonics: School Summary Pupil Premium (Beta)
- KS1: School and LA Pupil Premium (Beta)
- KS1: School List by Subject Pupil Premium (Beta)
- KS2 From DfE/AAT: School and LA Pupil Premium (Beta)
- KS2 From DfE/AAT: School List by Subject Pupil Premium (Beta)
From now on, all new reports created in Keypas (including those that we will create for KS4 and KS5) will be presented in a new design. We also intend to overhaul existing reports to not only use our new styling, but to incorporate multi-select dropdowns and other enhancements too!
Pupil Premium Import Instructions
Future Pupil Premium Reports
We wanted to provide this new analysis now ahead of the NCER conference. However, these reports are only the first phase of Pupil Premium functionality within Keypas Online.
As part of the second phase Angel Solutions and the NCER are investigating ways to best source aggregated Local Authority and national data. This will enable us to show aggregated data on the reports and the gap between school and aggregated data.
More useful Information
Throughout these reports you’ll see some acronyms you may not yet be familiar with. We’ve taken these acronyms from the Common Basic Data Set (CBDS). Their definitions are described on the report but to help you can see them below too.
|Acronyms||Pupil Premium Indicator|
|DPP||Deprivation Pupil Premium|
|SCP||Service Child Premium|
|LAP||Looked After Premium|
|AFC||Adopted from Care Premium|
To help you find the reports we’ve added them to your Favourite Reports widget and prefixed their names with Pup Prem. You can find your Favourite Reports widget on the Nexus home screen or your Keypas Dashboard as shown below.
Map your Schools by RAG rating
You have previously been able to show schools on a map and categorise them by group or inspection grade. Now you can also show/filter schools categorised by RAG rating as shown in the mock example image below.
Please note: RAG rating can be found under the inspection area drop down filter.
