Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium funding is a sum in the region of £1320.00 per annum for the academic year 2018/19 given to our school in respect of each child currently eligible for Free School Meals (or who has been in the previous six years), Looked After Children and children of services families.


The aim of the funding is to raise achievement and improve outcomes for these pupils. For the academic year 2017/18, our school received the sum of £26400.00 Pupil Premium funding and it is estimated to be in the region of £11,800 for 2018/19.


This funding is used by our school in a variety of ways in order to improve each child’s academic attainment, including helping overcome any barriers to their potential enjoyment of relevant opportunities in school life.


The funding provides a range of benefits, including additional support from teachers and teaching assistants, either on a one to one basis or as part of groups, both in and out of class.


On top of general support, such support relates currently to specific areas of learning or provision including:- SoundsWrite (phonics); daily reading practice; reading comprehension; writing composition; handwriting; spelling; speaking, listening and communication (including the Time to Talk program); numeracy; feedback on work and progress; target setting and booster groups.


Where a child receiving such funding has special educational needs, including those entitling them to additional funding besides Pupil Premium, such support is in accordance with their Individual Education Plan where relevant. This includes the costs of professionals employed from outside school to inform and supplement our provision.


There is also support for costs to our school and to families including those relating to school uniform, school meals, club membership, music lessons, day and residential trips and staff training.


The school evaluates the impact of the funding on each child entitled with regard to academic progress and children’s active involvement in school life.


In terms of academic progress at the end of Key Stage 2, our results for 2016/17 are as follows.
