Allocation of Pupil Premium
Last updated 18/09/17
What is Pupil Premium?
Introduced in April 2011, the pupil premium is allocated to children who are looked after by the local authority, those who have been eligible for Free School Meals at any point in the last six years (also known as Ever 6 FSM) and for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.

From April 2014 children who are looked after attract a higher rate of funding than children from low-income families - the ‘Pupil Premium Plus’. This is to reflect the unique challenges they face at school where they often struggle to keep up with their peers at both primary and secondary level.

Children who have parents in the armed forces are supported through the service child premium.
Impact of Pupil Premium 2016/17:
In April 2016 the school was allocated £17,460.00 and used this money to give children eligible for Pupil Premium support through targeted interventions from Teaching Assistants and Class teachers.

£450.00 was used to support families for children participating in school trips and after school activities.

Individual's progress in non-academic terms is also documented as often the confidence gained through extra support is the foundation for future learning. Over the academic year 2016/17 the Pupil premium had the following impact (Teacher assessed results):

  • T Working towards the age related expectations for their year group
  • B Achieving the essential skills of age related expectations within their year group
  • B+ Demonstrating a sound understanding of the key age-related expectations within their year group
  • W Making progress within the broader skills of age-related expectations for their year group
  • W+ Demonstrating a sound understanding of the core and broader skills
  • S All age-related skills have been met and are being demonstrated regularly
  • S+ All skills have been achieved and are being applied in different contexts
  • 1 Emerging (working towards age-related expectations)
  • 2 Expected (working at age-related expectations)
  • 3 Exceeding (working above age-related expectations)

75% of children in Year 6 achieved the expected standard in Reading, Writing and Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar in their Key Stage 2 SATs. 50% of children met the expected standard in Maths in these national tests.

All children began 2016/17 on a year specific band. The vast majority met age related expectations in all areas.


In April 2017 the school was allocated £19,080.00. £18,780.00 has been identified to support children in Reading, Writing and Maths through quality interventions led by class teachers and teaching assistants. The vast majority of our eligible pupils are meeting age related expectations (ARE) in these areas, therefore the targeted support is used to ensure all pupils can meet ARE and to maximise the potential of the more able disadvantaged. Our teaching staff have the capacity to use existing pedagogy and skills to deliver these outcomes, with support from the SENDCo and outside agencies where appropriate. £300.00 has also been allocated to support families for children participating in school trips and after school activities.

Impact will be measured and reviewed through termly pupil progress meetings, where pupil conferencing, book and planning scrutinies, learning observations and pupil data will be analysed and discussed. Children's attainment data will be reviewed in Reading, Writing and Maths with Reading and Spelling Ages also monitored. Progress in confidence and other areas which are difficult to measure but nonetheless evidence of achievement are recorded and reviewed in these termly meetings.
