Pupil Premium Grant 2016-17

In 2016-17 there were 78 children who were eligible for the Pupil Premium Grant. The school has received £1320 for each child, totalling £102,960. The funding is used to provide one to one and small group tuition. It is also used to provide high quality training for teachers and teaching assistants helping them to improve the quality of the school’s teaching provision. The school's Pupil Premium Strategy for 2016-17 gives further details of provision, intervention and evaluation of its impact.


  • [KS1] Children eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) outperformed their peers at the end of KS1 in 2017 in Reading and Mathematics.
  • No significant or vulnerable group is falling behind.
  • Pupils are removed from targeted precision teaching intervention groups because they have made especially good, or even outstanding, progress and have caught up with the learning of their peers.
  • [Y1 Phonics] 60% of children eligilbe for FSM achieved the expected standard in the Y1 Phonics Screening Check in June 2017. 93% of those not eligible acheived the standard.
  • [EYFS] 57.1% of pupils eligible for FSM acheived a Good Level of Development in the school, compared to 47.7% across all schools in BANES. 82.6% of pupils not eligible for FSM achieved a GLD in school, compared to 75.3% in BANES. This shows that the school is a better performing school in BANES for all children and particularly disadvantaged pupils.
  • [EYFS] ELG Reading - 68.6% FSM achieved (BANES 59.8%)
  • [EYFS] ELG Writing - 62.9% FSM achieved (BANES 52.8%)
  • School performance continues to improve since the implementation of targeted precision teaching strategies.
  • The gap between the achievement of pupils in receipt of pupil premium funding and those that are not has reduced.
