Impact of PPG spending 2015 - 2016

Attendance at extra- curricular clubs and enrichment days continues to enable the children to participate fully in all of the activities on offer and to boost self-esteem, having a positive impact on health and well-being.  This has also transferred itself into the classroom with the children demonstrating a positive attitude to learning and overall enjoyment of school.

At the end of Key Stage One, the expected standard was achieved by both Pupil Premium Learners in reading, with one child achieving a greater depth of understanding.   In both writing and maths, one child achieved the expected standard and one did not.  At least expected progress was made for both Pupil Premium Learners in reading, writing and maths, with better than expected progress being made for one learner in reading.

At the end of Key Stage Two the expected standard was achieved by both Pupil Premium Learners in reading, GPS and maths, with one child achieving a scaled score of 110 in reading. One child did not achieve the expected standard in writing. The attainment of Pupil Premium Learners across the school has improved with accelerated progress being made by a number of learners, ensuring that the attainment gap has been narrowed. In the majority of cases progress has been good for PPG children across the school in all subject areas.

Individual and small group intervention work and high quality first teaching continue to have a positive impact on standards.  The focused training received and subsequent embedding of formative assessment practices by all staff has been integral to the progress made by our Pupil Premium Learners.

During the 2014 - 2015 academic year there were no Pupil Premium Learners at the end of Key Stage Two.  The attainment of Pupil Premium Learners at the end of Key Stage One was good with level 2+ being attained in reading, writing and maths.  Progress was accelerated in all areas and was good in both reading and maths and expected in writing, demonstrating the effectiveness of the actions taken by the school.  Across the school, in the majority of cases, our Pupil Premium Learners continue to make at least expected progress.
