Pupil Premium funding is provided by the Government in addition to the School Budget. The purpose of the money is to help particular children reach their full potential both academically and socially and is allocated depending on the number of children who

  • Have been eligible for free school meals over the last 6 years
  • Are in the care of the Local Authority
  • Have a parent serving in the armed forces

In 2016-2017 the amount of Pupil Premium Funding for our School was £26,543 for 19 eligible pupils and was spent as follows:-

  • Interventions for reading, writing and maths and personal development
  • 1:1 TA support
  • Small group nurture support
  • 'Mathletics'
  • Assertive Mentoring Materials for Maths
  • Support for Handwriting
  • Comprehension games
  • School trips and extra curricular activities

The impact this year has been good for Maths and Reading with Pupil Premium children making slightly better progress than expected, but still less than the progress made by the non-Pupil Premium children at the end of Key Stage 2. 

Pupil Premium Impact

Although the Pupil Premium children are still behind those children who are not receiving pupil premium there is an increase in average point score over the last 3 years (FFT Aspire data). This shows an improving trend.
