Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium

This is additional funding provided by the DFE to enable the school to focus its attention on those children within school who are either on Free School Meals or are deemed by the school to be in need of additional support.

The amount of funding for the year 2014/15 £33,000 has been utilised by employing additional hours of support from teachers and teaching assistants. They have worked with specific children in small groups or in a one to one situation. These sessions have been planned by the teaching staff and implemented with very positive results. The children who benefited from the additional support have made more progress than expected. This progress is not only academically but also in terms of confidence and perseverance in completing their learning and extending themselves. We also used the funding to allow pupils to attend the Year 6 residential visit. 

The amount of funding for the year 2015/16 was £33,507. The same strategies were as above to enable the pupils to make good progress and achieve high standards. During this year the children in Year 6 had good attainment and most making more progress than the rest of their peers. This is due to the narrowing of the gap programmes we put into place.  Throughout the rest of the school the children on Free School Meals have made the same or higher progress than their peers.

The amount of funding for the year 2016/17 is £23,495.
