Pupil Premium Grant 2016 to 2017

Pupil Premium Grant 2016 to 2017

Our pupil premium money has been spent on providing additional support for our children and these interventions have had a significant impact on children’s attainment.

Following a significant dip in results in 2014 to 2015, our current data shows that KS2 results and our Year 1 phonics check results show that the school is continuing to raise standards for all children and it is expected that this upward trend continues. This is due to the hard work of staff, excellent support and partnerships and a constant determination that every child will succeed.

Our key objectives in using the pupil premium grant are to narrow the gap between pupil groups and to ensure all groups in school make good progress. Nationally there is a trend of pupils who receive free school meals achieve lower standards and make less progress than other groups., however our data shows that the gap between our FSM pupils and other groups is narrower than the national gap and in some cases over the past three years, have attained at a higher level than other FSM pupils nationally. We have high achieving pupils in receipt of the pupil premium grant. Through targeted intervention we are working to eliminate barriers to learning and progress. Many children start school with low attainment on entry and our aim is to ensure that they make accelerated progress in order to reach age related expectations.

Targeted support is being used to provide intervention and small class sizes in Y6, support and intervention for pupils with low attendance, support for children with behaviour, social and emotional issues and intervention to motivate children to engage in the curriculum.

Parental engagement and partnership continues to be a major focus. Our Ofsted reports have always recognised that the school works with parents to enable them to have a better understanding of our curriculum, what their children learn and how they can help them at home.
