Plans for Pupil Premium 2016-17

Pupil Premium Funding

The pupil premium is additional funding given to schools in England to raise the attainment of specific pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.

It is paid to schools according to the number of pupils who have been:

  • registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years
  • been in care for 6 months or longer

Please see the attached report for how we have planned to spend this money, the final amount received and the impact and evidence regarding our approach.

Impact - Results 2015

Year 4: At the end of the year, those in receipt of Pupil Premium funding were in line with the cohort for attainment in Reading, and broadly in line for Writing and Maths.  Progress for Reading and Writing was in line with the cohort for all areas.

KS1: At the end of Year 2, those in receipt of Pupil Premium funding achieved a higher average point score (APS) compared to the cohort and made more progress in the three areas of Reading, Writing and Maths. 

EYFS: At the end of Reception, 100% of those in receipt of pupil premium funding achieved age related expectations or above (ARE) and an increased rate of progress in comparison to the cohort. 

The provision of counselling has helped those in receipt of funding who have additional needs. This has impacted on better behaviour and support strategies for individuals.
