                         Pupil Premium Funding                        


We are aiming for every single one of our pupil premium funded children to achieve the 'Expected' standard in all areas as much as possible.  As a minimum, we want this group to achieve a higher level than all pupils nationally achieve.

This funding stream was introduced in 2011/2012 and is in addition to funding allocated through the Direct Schools Grant.  Pupil premium eligibility increased last year and the rates were increased in 2013/2014 to £900 per pupil and in 2014/2015 to £1300 per pupil.  This has meant a significant increase in funding into our budget over the last 4 years from £21,960 in 2011/2012, to £126,558 in 2014/2015.  It is based on the number of pupils we have on roll, aged 4 and over, who have been known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM) in the last 6 years. Additional funding is received for Looked After Children (LAC) and children who are known to have been adopted.  This funding should be used to support disadvantaged pupils in the school so that they make the best progress in their learning.  In the case of LAC children the funding is very closely linked to support their needs.  We receive the funding in financial years and in the last year have transferred our spending plans to match these although often new actions are taken and planned from the September following data analysis of results.     

Our plan for the use of this money in the 2016-2017 year is below.  You can also see the previous year’s plan and outcomes lower down this page.

We have largely targeted our additional pupil premium funding on extra staffing and extra intervention.    We have put in extra teaching interventions enabling us to follow up learning with individuals and small groups when a need has been identified.  We do this through the use of “surgeries” and “prescriptions” in Years 5 and 6, a “Make Every Moment Count (MEMC)” book in Years 3 and 4 and follow up teaching and intervention in the afternoons in Years 1 and 2 which has involved the purchasing of additional resources and training ie FFT Wave 3.  In addition to the extra teaching we have funded exciting educational visits enabling all children to take part and provided after school tuition and extra in-class support from our Graduate Interns.

Desired Outcome (June 2017 results will be used to determine outcomes

‘Pupil Premium First’ school philosophy

There is an overall philosophy of overstaffing in the school in order to allow senior staff to support their phase and the pupils within it. This allows for misconception time with pupils, prescriptions and other focussed support.

Classroom strategies are geared towards prioritising PP pupils. Teachers know who their PP pupils are. Practices such as marking PP pupil’s books first ensure consistent focus on these pupils.

This is borne by the overall school budget.

PP pupils perform at least as well as PP pupils nationally and as close to other pupils as possible.

Measuring the impact of this extra funding in previous years

Impact in 2014

  • Compared to the 43% achieved last year, in 2014, 50% of our disadvantaged pupils achieved L4 in all areas of Reading, Writing & Maths

  • 67% of disadvantaged pupils achieved L4 in Spelling, Punctuation & Grammar

  • 83% of disadvantaged pupils made expected progress in Maths compared to 64% last year showing the impact of our extra maths teaching and intervention during the 2013-2014 school year

  • 100% of disadvantaged pupils made expected progress in Writing compared with 92% in 2013 showing the impact of our work using “Language Structures” to improve writing.

  • 83% of disadvantaged pupils made expected progress in Reading which was disappointing and is an area for focus in school in 2014/2015.  However 67% of disadvantaged pupils made above expected progress in reading (ie 3 levels progress), compared with 41% of other pupils


Impact in 2013

  • This vulnerable group made good progress in reading and writing but overall attainment results for 2013 were impacted by maths test results which were well below our expectations resulting in only 43% achieving a Level 4 in all three areas

  • 100% of disadvantaged pupils made expected progress in reading compared to 94% in 2012

  • 92% of disadvantaged pupils made expected progress in writing compared to 87% in 2012


The 2013/2014 budget spend is detailed below and includes brief details of impact in school. 


In 2013-2014 this funding enabled us to split classes ie all KS2 classes work for a double maths session once a week in three teaching groups rather than two and put in an extra class in KS1 in the mornings.
