Measuring the impact of PPG spending

Through the year, children’s progress has been tracked. Improved outcomes have been closely linked with academic progress as well as other indicators which demonstrate better learning attitudes. These include; engagement, motivation and enthusiasm to learn. Although these are classed as softer skills, the school can clearly demonstrate the impact of the initiatives as a result of the PPG.

OFSTED report (May 2014) highlights that pupils known to be eligible for pupil premium funding progress well and gaps between the achievement of these and other pupils are closing rapidly. Raiseonline can demonstrate that these gaps have closed year on year in Maths and Writing.

Attainment – Key Stage 1 SATs 2014

The percentage of pupils achieving end of year expectations (2b+) in reading and Writing has increased against the same time last year and is above National percentages.

KS1 Results






















National 2014 Data compared with our internal evaluations show that the school is steadily closing the gap between our pupil premium pupils and those who are not eligible. This is significant in Writing and Maths. Our focus is to ensure the provision for reading is closely monitored for these pupils. We have also taken careful consideration of other indicators to ensure all pupils make good progress compared to their peers; for e.g pupils who are identified as More Able or who have Special Educational Needs.

Out of the 18 children identified as eligible for the pupil premium in 2014 in Year 2 14/18 pupils achieved a Level 2+ in Reading

15/18 pupils achieved a Level 2+ in Writing

16/18 pupils achieved a Level 2+ in Maths

Of the few children who did not achieve this standard, all were identified as having specific learning difficulties. Although this is not seen as an excuse for their under performance; progress of these pupils has been evidenced through smaller steps.

Other indicators of impact include:

  • Raised enthusiasm and motivation to learn
  • Children taking ownership and pride in their achievement
  • Stronger parental partnership work
  • Children using ways to motivate themselves, planning, monitoring and evaluating their own learning
  • Developing higher order skills.
