Funding – 2016-2017

In the above academic year the school received £55,070 to support children eligible for pupil premium:

We were pleased that our evaluation showed that this had a very positive impact on the progress of the eligible children in our school. Here we can report that:

  • In the KS1 SATs in 2017 the percentage of pupils eligible for pupil premium (PP) achieving the expected standard was above other disadvantaged pupils nationally in the subjects of reading, writing and mathematics by 15%,12.5% and 17% respectively. An analysis of KS1 results in 2017, where the average is taken of the pass rates for these subjects, shows that the PP pupils in school achieved in line with other pupils nationally not eligible for PP (School PP average = 71% : other national = 73%), and well above pupils eligible for PP nationally by 15%. Further analysis over the past two years indicates that on average the pupils in school outperformed other pupils nationally not eligible for PP by 5.5% and other pupils eligible for PP nationally by 22.8%. Progress analysis for 2017 indicates that 50% more pupils eligible for PP from 2017 KS1 cohort achieved the expected standard in the KS1 SATs than they did at the end of Foundation Stage (GLD).
  • In the KS2 SATs in 2017 the children eligible for PP achieved higher standardised scores on average than other pupils nationally not eligible for PP in reading, mathematics and grammar, punctuation and spelling. The average combined reading, writing and mathematics progress score for pupils eligible for PP in school was +2.43 (Reading +1.7, Writing +1.98, Mathematics +3.60). This would place progress of this group within the top 25% of all pupils nationally and +2.22 above other pupils not eligible for PP nationally (based upon current available national data).
  • Internal progress assessments indicate that on average the children eligible for PP are making better than expected progress in the core subjects combined and better progress than other pupils in school not eligible for PP. (PP pupils progress = +3.35 grades/ Expected Progress is +3 grades per year)
