Pupil Premium Funding

This page is being updated.


Pupil Premium is an additional amount schools receive from the government to support areas of deprivation. The amount each school receives is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’).  Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, and children of service personnel.

The small numbers of pupils we have at our school means that if we put the detailed information on our website that the government suggests individual pupils and families and pupils could be identified. We have therefore placed a general statement about our plans for this year's Pupil Premium. 

We are rigorous in the use of assessment and monitoring information along with professional judgement to identify the challenges that pupils face and the impact that these challenges have on their learning. Our Governors on the Finance & Staffing Committe challenge the Head Teacher to identify the impact of spending and evaluate its effectiveness on a regular basis.

The school has undertaken a formal audit of pupil premium provision in April 2016 and produced an action plan and new policy.

 Pupil Premium Plan 2015-2016


Rationale for spending

There is evidence to suggest that poor teaching has a disproportionally large effect on disadvantaged children. Last year use of good teachers to deliver interventions was highly successful in KS2 and we are therefore going to focus this year on the quality of teaching, including strengthening the role of subject leaders, to ensure that disadvantaged children throughout the school receive the best-quality education. This is especially important where a special educational need is also present, as provision will be compromised by anything less than high-quality teaching.

We also have a number of children receiving pupil premium who are high achievers, particularly in maths, and we want to ensure that they remain on a high-achieving trajectory and benefit from a broad range of experiences.  

Pupil Premium allocation received for financial year 2015-2016: £23,600

Impact on children in receipt of pupil premium

Increase in teaching hours in school in Years 4-6: addition of specialist science/ICT teacher in order to release class teachers to provide precision teaching for individual and groups of children who are at risk of not making good progress.

1)      In KS2 Sats, all pupil premium children achieved Level 4 and above in reading, writing and maths. All children made expected progress in maths, reading and writing, with 33% making more than expected progress in reading and writing. As a result of high quality teacher intervention, one disadvantaged pupil attained Level 6 in maths in teacher assessment.

2)      In Years 4 and 5, where no SEN was present, all children achieved or exceeded expected levels in maths, reading and writing. Most children (all but one in each subject) without SEN made or exceeded expected levels of progress.

In other year groups, We put this funding towards the salaries paid to staff who deliver intervention programmes to children who require additional support. These children include those who attract the Pupil Premium funding.  The monitoring and tracking of progress made by these children indicates that this intervention does support the children with their learning.  Pupil Premium funding may also be utilised to supply resources to support specific teaching or intervention programmes.  In addition, Pupil Premium was spent on educational visits which enriched the teaching and learning of identified children.

1)      At KS1, expected levels were achieved in maths and reading, and expected or better than expected progress in all subjects.

2)      In Year 3, most children made or exceeded expected progress in maths, reading and writing.


Pupil Premium Report 2013 - 2014

During the academic year 2013 / 4, the Governing Body and school staff all contributed to a determined effort to raise outcomes for pupils in the area of reading.  It was agreed by the Governing Body that a significant proportion of Pupil premium monies, (total £17,595) and funds from the delegated budget would support this initiative.  The school enjoyed increased outcomes in reading -
