Pupil Premium

 Provision for Pupil Premium 2016-2017

Numbers of pupils and premium grant

  • Our key objective in using the Pupil Premium Grant is to narrow the gap between pupil groups. Through targeted interventions we are working to eliminate barriers to learning and progress. For children who start school with low attainment on entry, our aim is to ensure that they make accelerated progress in order to reach at least age related expectations as they move through the school. We have analysed our data thoroughly, examined the impact of current interventions and have made use of a range of research to inform our decision making: • Parental engagement (LPPA) • Importance of quality first teaching (Sutton Trust) • Within school variance (David Reynolds) • Feedback and Peer Tutoring (Education Endowment Foundation Toolkit).


    Our school improvement plan this year is focussed on three main targets: 

    Our main barriers for learning are:

    Social and emotional difficulties

    Speech and Language
