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.
