2014-15

Spending and Impact Summary

  • We have 27 pupils in receipt of Pupil Premium which is 14% of the school population.
  • We received £23,268.00 in Pupil premium funding in 2014-5.
  • Pupil Premium is closing the gap in this school because there are no significant* gaps in years 1, 2, 3 in reading and maths. There are no significant gaps between PP and non PP in Year 4 in any areas. In Year 5 the gaps are due to the high number of SEN pupils in this cohort and one pupil new to the school who is also SEN and has significant difficulties and needs a high level of support especially in literacy. In Year 6, 2 new pupils joined in term 2 both significantly behind, one pupil has SEN.
  • The gaps between PP and non PP pupils are widest in writing (for all year groups except year 4).
  • In reading 74% of pupil premium pupils are attaining at or above ARE. 66% of PP pupils have made +4 or more points progress in this academic year.
  • In writing 63% of pupil premium pupils are attaining at or above ARE. 52% of PP pupils have made +4 points progress in this academic year.
  • In maths 70% of pupil premium pupils are attaining at or above ARE. 59% of PP pupils have made +4 points progress in this academic year.
  • PP pupils have made more progress in reading than other subjects this academic year.

*where there are gaps more than 2.0 points between PP and non PP APS they have been commented upon and included as ‘significant’ gaps.

The number of children in receipt of Pupil Premium in July 2015 is 27, which is approximately 14% of the school. 22% of our Pupil Premium pupils are also on the SEN register, 30% of the pupils in receipt of PP also have social, emotional and/ or medical needs (SEM).

As of this year RAISEonline has made changes to the Closing the Gaps section in 2014. The pupil      group previously known as Free School Meals (FSM)/Children Looked After (CLA) will be referred to as disadvantaged. The group of pupils who are not disadvantaged will be described as other pupils, Forces pupils are therefore in other pupils.

The following table shows how this year’s end of Year 6 results will look on RAISEonline which will be published in the Autumn Term. Note that RAISEonline calculates APS points using whole levels only so a child who got a level 4 will score 27 points, a child who got level 5 will score 33 regardless of the fine grade, disadvantaged pupils refers to FSM/ CLA only.

Intervention groups and 1:1 support for Pupil Premium Children

Also see Pupil Premium tracking sheet which shows individuals progress and intervention programmes.

All children on Pupil Premium are on an intervention programme or one to one targeted support. The provision is altered according to need following pupil progress meetings which are held three times a year.

An additional 10 hours TA time was timetabled in terms 5 and 6 to provide further support to PP pupils, this included time to carry out ‘Better Reading Partners’( BRP) , ‘Sounds Discovery’ in Year 4 and WESforD and social skills groups in Year 2.

‘Nessy’ an ICT programme aimed at dyslexic students was purchased in term 5 to target 15 children with specific literacy difficulties across Key Stage 1 and 2. ‘Sounds Discovery’, WESforD and Nessy continued to support and develop reading, writing and spelling skills. The ‘Dyscalculia Toolkit’ is being used across Key Stage 2 to support pupils with mathematical difficulties.
