Pupil Profile Characteristics: FSM, PP, etc

Insight records common characteristic/profile statuses separately from a school's own custom interventions/groups. You'll see this on the Pupils page:

Editing a Pupil Profile

Admin users of Insight will see an Edit Profile button. This links to the pupil profile editor page.

For EAL, there is a top-level check box.

Other statuses are linked to academic years. By default the page shows the current year, but you can click to see the others too.

In addition to Class and SEN, you can update the following statuses:

  • FSM
  • Ever 6 FSM
    • Has been FSM in the past 6 six years, but not before Reception
  • Ever In Care
  • Disadvantaged
    • In Auto, it's Yes if the pupil is 'Ever 6 FSM' or 'Ever in Care'
  • Service Child
  • Pupil Premium
    • In Auto, it's Yes if the pupil is 'Disadvantaged' or 'Ever 6 Service Child'

Each has the choice of Auto, Yes and No. Yes and No explicitly assign the status. Auto will make Insight infer a status from others, and from previous years.

If a pupil was FSM last year, then Insight assumes they continue to be for following years, until explicitly told otherwise.

Some statuses will infer others, as per this diagram:

Our hope is that mostly schools can leave things set to Auto. However, the explicit options could be useful. For example, if a pupil has FSM today, but isn't officially Pupil Premium yet due to a still pending census.

Your MIS is taken to be the source of truth. If you change anything in Insight, then conflicting information from your MIS, Insight will update to match the MIS' information.
Updated Filter and Group menus

The Filter Pupils and Group Pupils menus group the common Pupil Premium related statuses into a single sub-menu:
