Pupil Premium Spending Review 2015 – 2016 Village Primary School £276,000
Our 2015/16 allocation was focused on
- raising the attainment of those pupils who attracted the pupil premium funding who were admitted to the school not achieving at age-related expectations
- ensuring the accelerated progress of our more able pupils who attract the funding
- removing individual barriers to learning such as health issues within the family and poor attendance rates
The impact of the funding was a reduction in the % of year 6 pupils who continue to need to catch up with non PP pupils from their key stage one starting point with many Village disadvantaged pupil premium children exceeding the attainment of Village non-disadvantaged children e.g. in grammar, punctuation and spelling, reading, and writing, though differences in attainment remain between Village disadvantaged pupils and non-disadvantaged pupils nationally.
We are very pleased that our pupil premium spending resulted in our disadvantaged pupils achieving higher than non-disadvantaged pupils nationally in writing.
Support for a number of families and a reduction in the number of pupil premium children who have social care involvement.
Details of the impact of our spending on key stage two pupil outcomes can be seen from the link below-
Our pupil premium funding impacted on the attainment level of our pupils – see above link for data. our funding is also used to support pupils with a range of barriers to their learning such as social care issues and attendance issues. Spending has supported the employment of staff to work with families to remove or alleviate the impact of these barriers.
Our focus for spending in 2016/17 is detailed in our action plan below which shows the amount we estimate we will receive and our children’s main barriers to learning.
