Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Impact Statement

The pupil premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their non disadvantaged peers nationally.

The pupil premium provides support for pupils who:

  • Were eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years ( FSM)
  • Have been looked after for 1 day or more ( CLA )
  • Were adopted from care on or after 30th December 2005 or left care under a special guardianship order or a child arrangement order. Pupil premium is paid at the following rates:

FSM : £1320 per primary pupil

CLA : £1900 per primary pupil

 

Pupil Premium Allocation for 2015/2016

For 2015-16 the school received pupil premium of £157,334 for 119 eligible pupils

The gaps are narrowing between disadvantaged pupils across the school and non disadvantaged pupils nationally. This year, the funding has been spent in the following areas

Pupils’ progress is monitored throughout the year in order for interventions to be put in place as appropriate.

There has been a change in the way Ofsted wish us to report the outcomes. Pupil premium children are now known as disadvantaged and their attainment and progress are compared to the attainment and progress of all non disadvantaged children nationally and not just within their own school.

At the end of KS1 (end of year 2) children’s attainment and progress is measured from their starting points which are their results at the end of the year they were in a reception class (end of EYFS). They will have a result in an emerging, expected or exceeding band for reading writing and maths.

At the end of KS2 children’s progress and attainment is measured using their KS1 results as the starting point. They will have a starting point in a low, middle or high band for reading writing and maths.

SPSL outcomes at the end of summer term 2016

The progress of disadvantaged children by the end of KS1 at least matches that of non-disadvantaged children nationally from similar starting points and is leading to attainment that is only slightly below non-disadvantaged at expected and at exceeded levels.

By the end of KS2 we recognise that progress is variable across subjects and prior attainment groups and we are focussing more of our resources at KS2 in 2016-17 to improve disadvantaged children’s outcomes especially in writing.
