Year on Year Impact /Attainment of Pupil Premium Pupils

Strategic - Actual Impact

Educational Psychologist

Personalised plans of support have refined quality first teaching and enabled progress through classroom intervention.  There is enhanced parental support /confidence to support own child with specific needs. There is fast tracking and closer liaison with external agencies, (CAMHs, Family Outreach Workers, Paediatricians, SALT).

Early year Foundation Stage

  • 73% of PP children (8/11) achieved a good Level of Development, which is in line with National other group (73%) and slightly above National All (72%)
  • The percentage of pupils achieving Expected or above in Reading (Sch 73% NA 77%), Writing (73%/ 78%) in Maths (73%/78%) is broadly in line with National All
  • From baselines all pupils made good progress and nearly half of the group made accelerated progress in Reading (45%), Writing (45%) and Maths 64%)

Phonics Year 1

  • The introduction of a new school initiative has impacted greatly in the percentage of pupils achieving the expected standards. 13/15 pupils (87%) of the pupils passed the screening compared to only 83% nationally.

Phonics end of Year 2

  • The school has a strong trend of children meeting the phonics expectations by the end of Year 2. In 2017 94% (10/11). 
  • In 2018, the proportion of PP children passing the screening by Year 2 dropped to 73%.  This is due to a large proportion of SEND pupils being within this group. 9/12 pupils achieved the expected standard in phonics by the end of Year 2. 2/3 pupils who did not meet the standards did not take the test in Year 1 and achieved more than half the marks by the end of year 2.

Keys Stage 1 – please note due to contextual reasons there will be some variation for school based data when compared to national publications. 4/9 pupils in the disadvantage group had specific SEND needs.

Project X

These pupils have changed mind-sets and better attitudes towards reading. Parental feedback have been very strong and supports the success of the intervention. Progress for these pupils is clearly exemplified through on entry and exit evidence.

Curriculum Enhancement - Actual Impact

Attendance officer

  • Overall attendance for the school (Year 1 and 2) is on an upward trend 95.8%(2016) 96.1%(2017) 96.4% (November 2018) and better than national figures (95.9%)
  • By the time children leave Year 2, their overall attendance has improved 96.2% (2016) 96.4% (2017) 96% (as of November 2018). The national figure for Year 2 is 96.1%.
  • Overall attendance for Pupil Premium children in Year 2 (2017/18) was 92.48%
  • Over time, the school has improved the attendance attitudes of some of our vulnerable and disadvantaged pupils–but attendance is often one factor in a very complex set of circumstances–
  • Attendance figures for vulnerable and disadvantaged pupils did not show a significant upward trend by the end of Year 2 2018- only 1/9 showing improved attendance. All 9 children had received regular correspondence and letters regarding their ongoing attendance issues -2/9 pupils showing improved attendance following this work.
  • Out of the 9 pupils – 3 children were having to provide medical evidence for absences and 3 children had been on unauthorised or extended holidays during Year 2.
  • Persistent absenteeism has remained the same over time for disadvantaged pupils. 2/9 were classed as persistent absentees (less than 90% attendance) at the end of Foundation Stage compared to 2/9 at the end of Year 2 for the same cohort with a change in one child.
  • Free breakfast club places were offered to identified vulnerable/ disadvantaged pupils to try and improve attendance and support positive parent partnerships.
  • 7 / 9 pupils attended the residential trip in Year 2 – these families were offered financial support with the trip so that the children could benefit from this beneficial trip.
