2014 – 2015

SPEND

The school  received £80,600 in pupil premium funding. We used the money in the following ways:

  • To employ an additional teacher which allowed Year 3 to be taught as 4 smaller classes rather than 3, for part of the school day. Which provided a better KS1 to KS2 transition experience, smaller class sizes, and more personalised learning for pupil premium children.
  • To implement during school and after school booster sessions to accelerate the progress of pupil premium children for Maths, Reading and Writing.
  • To provide 1:2:1 and small group support to raise standards, improve life chances, close gaps, ensure self-belief, confidence, motivation and respect for all. This was achieved through the additional employment of teachers and a higher level teaching assistant.
  • To provide mentoring for specific groups of pupil premium children, addressing potential barriers to learning enabling them to close the gap with their non-pupil premium peers.
  • To implement X Plus School which saw groups of pupil premium children spend time in school during half term breaks to complete targeted intervention work.

IMPACT

The same percentage of pupil premium and non-pupil premium children achieved the expected standard in Maths and Reading completely closing the gap. Whilst less pupil-premium children reached the expected level in Writing, all pupil-premium children made the expected levels of progress. All groups of children made the expected levels of progress in Maths, Reading and Writing.

The percentage of pupil-premium children making expected and more than expected progress was well above national expectations.
