Premium (Pupil)

Our budget for 2013/14 was £18,000, for 2014/15 it was £23,400 for 2015/16 it is £25,080.

Impact of the Pupil Premium grant

The school has a rigorous system of Self Evaluation allowing for progress of Pupil’s receiving the Pupil Premium to be accurately monitored. Any dips in performance are identified and appropriate interventions and strategies put in place to address this and ensure improvement and progress.

  •  A wide range of data is used – achievement data, pupils’ work, observations, learning walks, case studies, and staff, parent’s and pupil’s voices
  • Assessment Data is collected half termly so that the impact of interventions can be monitored regularly
  • Assessments are closely moderated to ensure they are accurate
  • Teaching staff and support staff attend and contribute to pupil progress meetings each half term
  • Regular feedback about performance is given to children and parents
  • Interventions are adapted or changed if they are not working
  • A governor, Mr Claude Scott, is responsible for monitoring the impact of the pupil premium

We also use our in house data tracking system (Pupil Asset) alongside SATs & Phonics test results to monitor and judge the impact upon attainment and progress.

2013/14 impact

The pupils that were entitled to Pupil Premium funding achieved a greater rate of progress than that of their peers. In maths they made 0.46 points extra, in writing 1.6 points extra and in reading 3.18 points extra compared with their non-pupil premium peers.

All Year 6 children funded by the Pupil Premium achieved level 4 in reading, writing and maths by the end of Key Stage 2 and also made two levels of progress across the Key Stage.

2014/15 impact

In the Year 6 cohort of pupils 67% of pupils receiving the pupil premium attained level 4 in reading, writing and maths (compared to 70% nationally). The average point score for these pupils in all three areas was 25.5 compared with the non- pupil premium pupils at 24 points.


Based on the success of the spending  of last year’s funding, this year the money is again being spent on:

  • One to one tuition with a teacher to address misconceptions, gaps and weaknesses in pupil’s learning
  • Targeted Teaching Assistant support to enhance access to lessons and learning opportunities and also to provide interventions to close gaps if pupils are not making good progress
  • Individual pupil assessments by experts to identify gaps in previous learning and any barriers to future learning
  • Development of ICT resources to extend and enhance learning experiences
  • Subsidy of school trips and also curriculum enrichment to extend and enhance the learning experiences, making learning irresistible for all
  • Music tuition for individual children
  • In addition, it is being used this year to provide ‘Behaviour for Learning’ resources
