Pupil Premium

Our School

In our school the percentage of children eligible for Free School Meals at any time in the last six years is between 24% and 30%.  For the period April 2014 to April 2015 we received £156,600.  For the period April 2015 to April 2016 we received £146,617.  For the current financial year we expect to receive £146,617.

This is spent in the following ways:

  • one to one tuition reading and maths tuition for identified children
  • Lexia support for identified children
  • targeted support from our Inclusion Teaching Assistant
  • speach and language support for identified children
  • booster groups
  • funds for a parental engagement project
  • training for both teachers and teaching assistants, particularly lesson studies
  • support for trips and visitors to school to lead activities
  • funding for Family Key Workers and a School Counsellor
  • funding for resources to support high quality teaching and learning
  • specialist provision for music and PE

For further details on how this money was spent together with the impact it made is outlined in our reports below.

What Impact Has Pupil Premium Had?

Our children in receipt of Pupil Premium funding achieve particularly well.  Previously, this success has been recognised nationally and we received a letter of congratulations from the Deputy Prime Minister, who stated we are "among the top performing schools in England for boosting the performance of disadvantaged pupils since the Pupil Premium was introduced".

In 2015 our success was recognised again.  David Laws MP wrote that we "are highly effective in educating (our) disadvantaged pupils".  He said that it was clear that we "provided disadvantaged pupils with a good start in life and prepared them well for secondary school".
