Pupil Premium Impact Statement for Academic Year 2015-16
Our Pupil Premium grant for 2015-16 was £27,460. This money was spent in a targeted intervention programme to support the learning needs of children in reading, writing, phonics and maths. A small amount was also used to enable specific children to access curricular opportunities outside the classroom.
Our intervention programme, supporting reading, writing, phonics and maths for children who need a little extra, targeted help was a great success. We saw progress made by children on pupil premium very closely matching that made by those not on Pupil Premium.
Across the school last year the average points’ progress for children attracting Pupil Premium funding was 101.1, whilst those not receiving the funding managed 100.4 points progress. (Expected progress is 100 points) The impact of our reading programme was particularly pleasing with the PP children outpacing the rest of the school; 101.5 in-year points progress to 100.2. Both the interventions in writing (100.9 points against 100.3) and maths (101 PP: 100.6 nonPP) helped the children to keep pace with the rest of the school and even out-perform the rest of the cohort, thus significantly closing the attainment gaps.
Because of the small size of the school and the very small number of disadvantaged children, any more specific information would leave individual children at risk of identification.
In addition we applied for and received two grants of Pupil Premium Plus, which are included in the £27,460. One was to continue the high need support for a LAC, the other to support the language development of a Looked After Child who arrived from Eastern Europe with no English. In both cases the grants funded Teaching Assistant hours; the second grant was also used to provide diglot texts, translation tools and specialist Lithuanian language support. Both children continue to make great progress and have outstanding attendance records.
