Pupil Premium

Planned Pupil Premium Expenditure 2016-2017

The Pupil Premium was introduced in 2010 by the Coalition Government. The Pupil Premium fund is targeted at supporting pupils in receipt of Free School Meals, Children in Care and Children from Service Families.

Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit, based on a knowledge of the school and its pupils. However they will be held accountable for how they have used this additional funding to support pupils from low-income families. Performance Tables will also capture the achievement of those pupils covered by the Pupil Premium.

Summary of PPG spending 2015-16
Spending in 2015/16 was used to support children to attain and make progress across the curriculum or to develop skills of self-confidence.  By using PPG we are able to offer each child a high degree of support to develop them from their own start point. Each child made good or better progress in reading and writing and attainment was in line with previous expectations.

 

The PPG was used to provide additional Teaching Assistant hours which were used specifically to support the PP children. The PPG also provided some additional teacher time to allow one child to have 1:1 tuition in Year 6, this child made good progress.

 

Class sizes have been kept at a very small size due to the low numbers on roll.
