Impact of the Use of Pupil Premium Funding in Our School

Ofsted in April 2015 commented that

“Pupils make rapid progress in all year groups. By the time they leave the school, standards in reading, writing and mathematics are much higher than the national average”

“The pupil premium funding is used very successfully to accelerate pupil progress and ensure that standards at the end of Year 2 are high for all groups of pupils.”


In July 2018 our data shows that children across the school make excellent progress and that the attainment of children for whom we recieve pupil premium funding is broadly in line with their peers in most year groups and areas of learning.

 Our rolling record of  three year averages for children achieving a good level of development also shows that gap between children for whom we receive pupil premium funding and their peers is reducing overtime.

End of Key Stage One Assessments  ( Year Two)

At the end of Key Stage One the attainment of this group of pupils is broadly at or better than attainment national benchmarks.   The gap between them and their peers is wider than 2017 but this reflects the particular needs of this cohort; all of whom have made at least good individual progress.
