Disadvantaged / Pupil Premium Funding




In 2011 the Government introduced Pupil Premium Funding. This additional funding is aimed at children receiving free school meals. As schools know their children, the Government let individual schools decide how the additional funding will be best spent to support the learning of children entitled to free school meals.

Pupil Premium Review 2015/16 

Over the last three years the Pupil Premium funding has enabled us to improve outcomes for pupils eligible for funding. At the end of Key Stage 2 (Y6) Statutory tests in 2015, a 100% of Pupil Premium children made at least expected progress in Reading, Writing and Maths across Upper School (Key stage 2), whilst 29% of disadvantaged pupils made accelerated progress in Maths and Reading. 
2015/16 saw significant improvements in performance for Pupil Premium children who sat the year one phonics screening check.  79% of these pupils passed the check in line with the rest of the year group.  Pupil Premium children through school are continuing to make good progress whilst enjoying a wide varied, skills based curriculum. 
The school’s high aspirations for all have raised standards for all pupils over the last three years. We will continue to work hard to give those identified as eligible for Pupil Premium Funding the best possible start in life, as we do all our pupils.
