Pupil Premium Impact 2015/16

Key Stage 2

There were 15/20 pupils in our Y6 cohort who were classed as disadvantaged pupils receiving pupil premium. This figure (15) includes four are ARP provision pupils, who work generally at levels below National Curriculum. Without their inclusion, these figures would be much higher and are shown in brackets below.

At the end of Year 6 (2016)
  • 60% (72.7%) of our pupil premium children achieved the expected standard in maths;
  • 47% (63.6%) of our pupil premium children achieved the expected standard in writing;
  • 67% (90.9%) of our pupil premium children achieved the expected standard in reading;
  • 53% (72.7%) of our pupil premium children achieved the expected standard in grammar, spelling and punctuation;
  • 47% (63.6%) of our pupil premium children achieved the expected standard in reading, writing and maths combined;
  • the average scaled score in reading for our pupil premium children was 97.6 (99.9);
  • the average scaled score in maths for our pupil premium children was 93.7 (94.6).

The above data is evidence of the impact at the end of Key Stage 2 that all strategies and interventions we have put in place are having on pupils’ attainment and progress.


Key Stage 1

There were 19 pupils in our Y2 cohort who were classed as disadvantaged pupils receiving pupil premium.

At the end of Year 2 (2016)
  • 53% of our pupil premium children achieved the expected standard in reading.
  • 58% of our pupil premium children achieved the expected standard in writing.
  • 68% of our pupil premium children achieved the expected standard in maths.
  • 47% of our pupil premium children achieved the expected standard in reading, writing and maths combined.

The above data is clear evidence of the impact at the end of Key Stage 1 that implementing targeted booster sessions, letters and sounds and maths support is having on pupil attainment and progress.

Five pupils from Year 2 and 4 pupils from Year 1 accessed the Reading Recovery Programme in 2015-16.

Year 2 pupils entered the programme on average 12.2 months behind in their reading compared to their peers.  By the end of the programme the pupils had made on average 24 months of progress.

At the start of the programme they were, on average, 9.7 months behind in Numeracy compared to their peers.  At the end of the programme they made, on average, 19.7 months of progress.


Free Breakfast Club Provision

Our free breakfast club is attended, on average, by 35% of the school (approximately 55-60 children per day). On average 30% of our children who were eligible for pupil premium attended our breakfast club. They come to start the school day, well fed and ready to learn.


Free After-school Provision

The school, working with the YMCA, offer free after-school provision for all children.  They have the opportunity to access a range of wider opportunities with their peers.


Learning Mentor

The school continued to support the role of a Learning Mentor who works with small groups and on a one-to-one basis with pupils that have emotional or behavioural issues. Children will learn if they are happy and the impact of our support strategies is evident throughout the school.
