Pupil Premium Summary

The government continues to provide funding targeted at addressing underlying inequalities and aiming to tackle the disadvantages that some children experience in life. As a school we used the money carefully to ensure that our vulnerable children achieved the best support possible. One of the measures for assessing the impact of this funding is to look at those children who claim free school meals (FSM).

How we used Pupil Premium

  • We have a specialist MFL teacher who releases class teachers to provide focused support to close learning gaps in reading, writing and maths.
  • We provide outstanding training for all staff to ensure that all children get the best provision within the classroom and through intervention groups.
  • We ensure that all children receive cultural enrichment for example through the collaboration with the Natural History Museum and Unicorn Theatre.
  • We provide cutting edge technology to support children’s learning.

Pupil Premium Impact

There is a gap in attainment in KS1 between pupils who receive the pupil premium and children who do not. Pupil premium children however are attaining in line with all children nationally. In KS2 the gap in attainment has narrowed in Reading, Maths, SPaG and Combined. Our Pupil Premium children exceed the % of all children nationally attaining combined Reading, Writing and Maths. We are aware that due to vulnerability factors, narrowing the gap for disadvantaged pupils will always be a focus.
