Achievement through learning

2015/2016 Pupil Premium Money

The school received £66,900 in Pupil Premium funding.  This money contributed towards us maintaining all the following strategies and interventions:

  • Full-time Teaching Assistants in all classes from Years 1 to 6;
  • additional two full time members of staff in Nursery and Reception classes;
  • a full-time Learning Mentor;
  • two additional Teaching Assistants to provide booster support from Year 1 up to Year 4;
  • Year 5 & 6 classes had an additional Teaching Assistant and three full time staff in each class; and
  • providing a Newly Arrived Group for 25 minutes on 4 mornings each week.




The Impact of Pupil Premium Interventions:

  • The progress in Years 1 to 6 was 3.4 points in Reading, 3.4 in Writing and 3.5 in Maths.  The average progress of non-Pupil Premium pupils was 3.3 points in Reading, 3.4 in Writing and 3.6 in Maths.  This represents good average progress by both Pupil Premium children and non-Pupil Premium children.
  • In Year 6, 29% of Pupil Premium children achieved the expected standard in Reading, Writing and Maths compared to 30% of the class overall.  Attainment was very similar for Pupil Premium and non-Pupil Premium children.
