In 2012 our gap between Pupil Premium and non-Pupil Premium children was -3.5, so over the years 2012, 2013 and 2014 we closed the gap year-on-year. In 2015 it widened again.  Last year we appointed a Pupil Premium Champion, Mrs Roo Sheppard, who has helped to restructure the way we spend our funding for Pupil Premium, so that interventions and expenses for each child is planned on an even more individual basis. This means that each child receives extra support based on his or her strengths and weaknesses in 2016.

In 2016 the assessments changed, these scores are shown on the table below and show the percentage of children meeting age related expectations in reading, writing and maths.

Our Pupil Premium percentages are now very close to Non-Pupil Premium percentages, with Pupil Premium children making accelerated progress over this last year to almost close the gap with their peers. In 2016-17 we are creating even more individualised intervention plans for our Pupil Premium children.

As above, the appointment of a Pupil Premium champion half-way through the 2015-16 school year means that funding is now targeted even more carefully to the needs of individuals. However, our 2016 cohort of PP children started in reception with particularly low baseline scores and the percentage passing the Phonics Screening check reflects this. We will need to target our Pupil Premium children in the build up to the phonics screening check even more closely this year.

We are absolutely delighted with our Pupil Premium data for Foundation Stage – where Pupil Premium children are marginally out-preforming Non-Pupil Premium children. This is due to very careful targeting of interventions for Pupil Premium children, and something we are building on even further this year.
