Pupil Premium Statement

'The rate of progress pupils who are eligible for additional funding is the same in both English and Mathmatics as it is for other pupils. This provides a clear indication of the school's good promotion of equality of opportunity.'

Ofsted, June 2014 

The Pupil Premium is additional funding given by the Government to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils, and close the gap between them and their peers. Eligibility for free school meals is the main measure of deprivation, although the children of serving Armed Forces personnel and children in Care are also defined as Pupil Premium children.


Pupil Premium funding is granted to schools annually. The school receives an amount for each Pupil Premium child, depending on their eligibility category. Details of the Pupil Premium categories can be found by clicking here 


The grant is spent for the purposes of the school in order to raise attainment and progress for Pupil Premium Pupils. Where pupils are exceeding expectations, enrichment/social activities will be provided for groups of Pupil Premium Pupils.


Our Pupil Premium Learning Mentors, Mrs Jill Hitchman (KS2) and Mrs Tracy Pitcher (YR/KS1), support a dedicated team of staff to ensure that particular pupils achieve their full potential at school. The Pupil Premium Mentors work with Pupil Premium children, on either a 1:1 basis or within small groups, to set targets and promote a course of action to help pupils overcome any barriers to learning in order fulfil their potential. 


We also have the weekly 'Ebluey Club', which helps support the practical and emotional needs of children of Armed Forces personnel, especially helping them to maintain contact with parents serving overseas.


To accelerate progress for Pupil Premium pupils, we also build on existing all-school strategies focusing on homework, after school clubs, arts participation by introducing Building Learning Power,  Assessment for Learning and extending ICT applications (Mathletics, iPads). In addition, we run targeted interventions including Nippy Numbers, Sound Discovery, Rainbow Reading, Acceleread, Nessy, Active Literacy, Write Online,1:1 Maths, Garden of Dreams, Play Therapy and Brain Gym.


Pupils from Years 2 to 6, including Pupil Premium pupils, accessed these targeted interventions. The table below highlights the success of each targeted intervention to determine a cost benefit analysis.
