Lawefield Primary School

Achievement through learning

2016/2017 Pupil Premium Money

The school received £54,720 in Pupil Premium funding.  This money had 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;
  • the Year 6 class had an additional Teaching Assistant and therefore there were three full time members of staff in that class;
  • providing a Newly Arrived Group for 25 minutes on 4 mornings each week; and
  • subsidised school trips which allowed all children, with parental consent, to participate.

 

 

 

The Impact of Pupil Premium Interventions:

  • The progress of pupil premium children in Years 1 to 6 was 5.5 points in Reading, 6.1 in Writing and 5.3 in Maths. The average progress of non-pupil premium pupils was 5.9 points in Reading, 6.5 in Writing and 6.3 in Maths. This represents that pupil premium children are not making as much progress as non-pupil premium pupils and therefore we have reviewed our pupil premium strategy and have implemented a more focused approach and rigorous monitoring system.
  • In Year 6, 23% of Pupil Premium children achieved the expected standard in Reading, Writing and Maths compared to 46% of the class overall. This represents that pupil premium children are not attaining as well as non-pupil premium pupils and therefore we have reviewed our pupil premium strategy and have implemented a more focused approach and rigorous monitoring system.
