Impact of Pupil Premium – July 2014:

Progress by eligible children is above the nationally expected overall in all of Reading, Writing and Maths. It could still be better for Writing and Maths. Children in Years 1 to 4 have made the best progress.

Across the school 81% of eligible children are at or above the level expected for their age in Maths, 62% for Writing and 76% for Reading. 95% of eligible children are at or only slightly below expectation.

Eligible children in our school are in line with eligible children nationally but we want them to do better than children nationally – where children have the potential to be high attainers we want to make sure this happens.

Plans for Pupil Premium 2014 – 2015

The budget for 2014-2015 contains £28,600.


  • Consultations: What could we do with the money to help children make best progress, feel welcome, enjoy school, be successful at high school:
    • Parents/carers
    • Staff
    • Pupils
    • Additional meetings with teachers to update on children’s progress and next steps – cover funded by PP
    • Home visits
    • Family support – a day a week of Parent Support Advisor time
    • Smaller class sizes
    • Homework club: Some parents report that it is hard to get their children to complete homework. We are considering an after-school club where a couple of school adults support and encourage children. Parents  and carers will be invited to attend, and can then get homework done in a settled, supportive, helpful environment.
    • Continued interventions in reading, maths, anger management, emotional development and other areas where required.
    • Support individual children – one-to-one tutoring, access to clubs and activities.
