Allocation and impact: 2016/2017
In 2016/2017 the school was allocated pupil premium of £32,040 for pupils from military families, those in current or past receipt of free school meals and those for whom Looked After status applied.
We used our pupil premium to:
As a result of these measures pupils gained experiences, were readily assessed and their needs catered for leading to most pupil premium pupils, who were in the school for more than half of the year, making at least expected progress. Transition to secondary school or new primary school places was well managed and feedback indicates that pupils were well prepared and ready to learn.
The school has been allocated a Pupil premium budget of £36,200 for pupils from military families, those in current or past receipt of free school meals and those for whom Looked After status applied.
Pupils who fall within these categories have needs ranging from dealing with emotional turbulence, a temporary slowing of progress due to frequent location moves, less opportunity for enriching experiences due to low income or issues in maintaining attention within the classroom due to specified conditions.
Thus we plan to spend our pupil premium as follows:
The impact of these measures will be assessed via our ongoing formative and summative assessments, pupil feedback, observation and professional judgement as well as parental comment. Governors will be made aware of the impact of funding via the curriculum committee who monitor the progress of all pupils.
We will review the impact of the strategies put in place in April 2018.
