Pupil Premium

‘Pupil Premium’ funding, now called ‘disadvantage funding’, is allocated to schools from central government for the specific purpose of raising attainment amongst an identified group of children and closing the gap between them and their peers.

It is calculated based on the number of pupils who have registered for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years, children whose parents are serving in the armed forces and those who have left local authority care under adoption, special guardianship or residence orders.

As a school we can decide how our funding is spent in order to benefit our children. However, we will be held to account on how we have used this funding and the impact that it has had.

 

For the academic year 2015/16 we received £26,400 in Pupil Premium funding.

We are continuing to support the following staffing posts with specific responsibilities and a variety of intervention strategies to support pupil progress:

  • Nichola Parry, HLTA
  • Diane Cutter, Level 3 Teaching Assistant

Intervention continues to be  delivered through small group work and one-to-one tuition.  The focus is to ensure that:

  • expected levels of progress is made during the year in terms of level and average point score in writing;
  • expected levels of progress is made during the year in terms of level and average point score in maths;
  • children are on track to make expected, or better, progress by the end of Key Stage 2.
