"Success For All" - How we use our Pupil Premium Funding

The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools based upon the number of children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for free school meals or have been eligible over the last six years. It is also includes the number of children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. The funding is provided for the specific purpose of increasing the attainment and progress of these groups of pupils. An additional premium is provided based upon the number of pupils who have a parent working for the armed services. This service premium is designed to address the emotional and social well-being of these pupils.

Barriers to learning:


Barriers to learning for pupils in receipt of Pupil Premium are: attendance and punctuality, speech and language acquisition, low literacy and numeracy levels, being equiped to learn and ready for school. In recent years many of the pupils have started school with attainment well-below that expected of pupils of their actual age. Pupils with Special Educational Needs are supported with individual education plans.


Planned use:

To continue to employ a play worker in EYFS

  • To meet and greet vulnerable children and settle them into their learning activities
  • To work with identified Pupil Premium children on play based speaking and listening activities.
  • To support, develop and extend the language of learning
  • To extend learning through the introduction and use of a rich vocabulary.
  • To identify those Pupil Premium children who need additional language and play support and plan appropriate interventions.


To employ an additional teacher to:

  • Provide support for individuals/small groups of pupils during Literacy and numeracy lessons
  • Reduce the group sizes in the teaching of phonics.
  • Provide cover for teachers to run Pupil Premium Intervention (PPI) sessions to provide one to one/small group tuition in English and Maths for identified pupils.
  • To provide additional teacher support in Year 6, enabling targeted support for groups of pupils in literacy and numeracy during the Spring term.
  • To provide support for families who struggle with attendance and lateness


  • To continue to employ trained reading support assistants to give regular dedicated reading support for the children that need it most.


  • To provide after school booster sessions in reading, writing and maths tuition both 1:1 and in small groups.


Other support:

To subsidise residential and educational day visits for pupils currently receiving Free School Meals if requested.

  • To subsidise or purchase school uniform for those children in receipt of Free School Meals to ensure that children are dressed appropriately for school and the weather.
  • Raising self-esteem has a positive impact on pupil progress and attainment.  This is achieved through providing enrichment activities for pupils receiving PPG – music lessons, extra-curricular Judo sessions, dance group and drama sessions.


How we measure the impact of the PPG spending:


  • The class teacher and senior leadership team (SLT) monitor and analyse the progress of pupils receiving the PPG using our electronic data tracking system. A pupil progress meeting takes place termly with the Head Teacher. The Special Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) conducts further pupil progress meetings for SEN pupils and pupils receiving an intervention. The progress of these pupils is reported to Governors termly.
  • Pupils participating in an intervention or additional sessions always have assessments at the beginning and end of targeted intervention so that any improvements in attainment can be measured.


Impact will be measured by:


  • % of pupils achieving Year 2 Phonic re-check
  • % of pupils achieving expected standards at the end of Key Stage One and Key Stage Two
  • % of pupils making good progress (3 points per year) in reading, writing and mathematics throughout the school
  • % of pupils participating in residential visits and educational day visits
  • All children are able to wear school uniform and be dressed appropriately for the weather.
  • Pupil premium children are able to enhance their education by participating in extra-curricular karate and music tuition

Outcomes for pupils in our school receiving the Pupil Premium Grant:

Academic Year 2015 - 2016



Progress from starting points was good – all made expected progress with 86% making more than expected.

86% of Non- Pupil Premium Pupils achieved a Good Level of Development compared with 57% of Pupil Premium children.


Key Stage One

Progress from starting points was good in reading, writing and mathematics – attainment was higher for Pupil Premium children in Reading and Maths and in line with non Pupil-Premium in Writing.

Progress in phonics was good though attainment was well below that of other pupils in the cohort due to a significantly lower starting point.


At the end of Key Stage 2:
