Pupil Premium

Introduction

The pupil premium was introduced in April 2011 by the government and is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’). Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, and children of service personnel.
In 2017-18 there were 58 pupils entitled to pupil premium funding to support their learning and progress. The total received was £78,880.00.

The following table indicates how the funding was spent.

b) Internal analysis of school data indicates that progress of pupil premium pupils across the school is very good. This is verified by an external school consultant through analysis of data on a termly basis.

c) An analysis of the play therapy provision indicates that Client Difficulties Scores decreased significantly and Client Prosocial Scores increased as a result of this intervention. 3 pupils benefitted from play therapy. Nurture groups provided 12 pupils with extra support, resulting in greater integration and increased access to the curriculum.

d) SEND provision is very well led with high satisfaction levels reported by parents of SEND pupils, and at least expected progress by pupils.

e) Work scrutiny, lesson observations and data reports reflect high standards and quality teaching and learning across the school.
