Pupil Premium

The pupil premium is allocated by the government to each school on the basis of their data for children entitled to Free School Meals (FSM) over the last six years and also an amount for service families.

In 2017-18 we are using the Pupil Premium, £43140, to support 35 children in our school to:

  • Continue to provide small group support for pupils
  • Provide targeted support for reading
  • Provide 1:1 support to develop and nourish pupils SMSC
  • Provide 1:1 support in literacy and numeracy
  • Enable children from our pupil premium families to participate in music lessons, trips and visits (including Year 5 and 6 residential visit) and extra-curricular activities by supporting the cost to parents
  • Provide uniform, sports clothing and footwear to ensure an inclusive environment for our pupil premium children

In 2016-17 we used the Pupil Premium, £26400, to support 20 children in our school.  This money was used to:

  • Provide targeted support for reading
  • Provide support in class across the curriculum
  • Provide 1:1 to support pupils’ development in SMSC
  • Allow children from pupil premium families to participate in music lessons and extra-curricular activities by supporting the cost to parents
  • Provide uniform,sports clothing and footwear to ensure that all of our children feel valued and able to have equal access to learning

Tracking evidence for these children (July 2016) showed an improvement in reading ages and in their confidence when approaching reading and writing opportunities (Pupil Premium Profiles and SEND Profiles July 2016)

Impact of this funding

  • Monitoring Spring term 2017 shows all children engaged in individual reading sessions improving in the use of phonics, confidence and enjoyment in reading
  • Young people better able to discuss their emotions
  • An improvement in confidence resulting in achievement in both sporting and academic work
