Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium pupils progress is highlighted within our School development Plan(2017/2018) We aim to:

*To, through consistently good to outstanding teaching, raise attainment and achievement of all groups of leaners, especially in phonics and reading, highlighting DA pupils and boys to show an upward trend in both phonic screening and reading results – work scrutiny to show accelerated progress.


  • We seek to ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of the pupils;
  • We seek to ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed;
  • In making provision for disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who are in receipt of pupil premium will be disadvantaged;
  • We also recognise that not all pupils who are disadvantaged qualify for Pupil Premium support. We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupils or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being in need of intervention and support;
  • Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals.


The range of provision the staff and Governors consider making for this group include:

  • Increasing staff in longer writing and maths sessions( KS1) to enable purposeful feedback and immediate progress in learning
  • Proving 1-1 and small group work with an experienced teacher focused on overcoming gaps in learning;
  • Social and emotional support through counselling sessions provided by Fegans
  • The majority of our work through the pupil premium will be aimed at accelerating progress -moving children to at least age related expectations, in reading, writing and maths. To ensure a greater % reach GLD and achieve Phonic screening in Year 1
  • In addition the school recognises the wider curriculum supports and enriches children- therefore funding will also be allocated to enable children to participate fully and actively in wider and extra-curricular activities


  • It will be the responsibility of the Headteacher, or a delegated member of staff, to report to the governors on:
  • the progress made towards narrowing the gap, for those in receipt of Pupil Premium
  • an outline of the provision that was made since the last meeting;
  • an evaluation of the cost effectiveness and impact of the provision in terms of the progress made by the pupils receiving a particular provision.
  • Parents will receive information as to the progress of pupils through personal information sent home on individual education plans and through reporting of assessment results at the end of the academic year.
  • The governors of the school will ensure that there is an annual statement to parents on how the Pupil Premium funding has been used to address the issue of ‘narrowing the gap’. This task will be carried out within the requirements published by the Department of Education and will appear on our school website.


Any appeals against this policy will be through the governors’ complaints procedure.
