Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Spending Statement

Information for the 2015/16 Academic Year

The School allocation for the academic year 2015/16 was £145,860. In total the school has 161 pupils who were eligible to benefit from this funding.

Our focus for this year has been on literacy across the School. We believe that the biggest barrier to success for pupils is poor literacy skills. Pupil Premium pupils often need more support than other pupils in this area and the use of the Pupil Premium funding reflects this.

Summary of Key Focus Areas

  • Improve the number of Pupil Premium students achieving expected progress between KS2 to KS4 in both Maths and English
  • Improve the number of Pupil Premium students achieving A*-C in both Maths and English
  • Improve the attendance of all Pupil Premium students across the school
  • Provide an appropriate curriculum to all Pupil Premium students, regardless of ability
  • Improve the reading age of Pupil Premium students to ensure it is closer to their chronological age
  • Provide literacy and numeracy intervention for those Pupil Premium students who need it the most to enable them to access the school curriculum
  • Ensure Pupil Premium students leaving the school have access to an appropriate place of employment and/or education
  • Ensure the number of fixed-term exclusions for Pupil Premium students remains very low
