Achievement through learning

2013/2014 Pupil Premium Money

The school received £50,100 in Pupil Premium funding.  This money contributed towards us maintaining all the strategies and interventions which were in place last academic year.  These include:

  • An additional full-time member of staff in Nursery;
  • an additional full-time member of staff in Reception;
  • full-time Teaching Assistants in all classes from Years 1 to 6;
  • a full-time Learning Mentor;
  • an additional 2 Teaching Assistants providing booster groups in Year 1 to 6;
  • providing Year 2 boys’ writing booster sessions on 4 afternoons a week; and
  • providing a Newly Arrived Group for 25 minutes on 4 mornings each week.

 

 

 

The impact of Pupil Premium interventions:

  • In 2013/14, the average pupil progress of Pupil Premium pupils in Years 2 to 5 was 3.12 points and the average progress of non-Pupil Premium pupils was 3.46 points.  This represents good average progress by both Pupil Premium children and non-Pupil Premium children.
  • The progress of Year 6 Pupil Premium pupils over 4 years was on average 2.62 levels in Reading, Writing and Maths compared to 2.51 levels per child for the class overall (please note that this figure excludes 1 child who joined us part way through Year 6).  This represents very good progress over 4 years by both Pupil Premium and non-Pupil Premium children.
  • In Year 6, 60% of Pupil Premium children achieved Level 4 or above in Reading, Writing and Maths compared to 64% of the class overall.  Attainment was very similar for Pupil Premium and non-Pupil Premium children.
