Pupil Premium 2016-17 – Impact Statement 

The pupil premium allocation for the financial year 2016-17 was £7060.

8 pupils (7%) were eligible for one of the following:

Free School Meals / Ever 6 - £1,320

Looked After Children - £1,900

Service family - £300


This was spent on:

  • TA support in classrooms to support ‘Quality First’ teaching in whole class settings.
  • 1 to 1 / small group support for English and maths.
  • Financial support for extra-curricular activities for those eligible for Pupil Premium funding.
  • Financial support for school uniform for eligible children.
  • Contribution to staff training and resources for ‘growth mindset’ and skills for learning.
  • Training and on-going supervision for 2 Teaching Assistants in Emotional Literacy Support (ELSA), including resources for the delivery of this support.


This year, our Pupil Premium children have made progress broadly similar to their non-Pupil Premium peers, with 80% achieving the same or greater progress than their peers. Overall, the ‘gap’ is as follows: Reading -0.9 points progress; Writing +0.2 points progress; Maths -1.1 points progress.

We have high expectations of achievement and aim for all of our Pupil Premium children to achieve at least as well as their peers. We therefore use targeted intervention where necessary – this is often more effective in a 1:2 or small group situation, so other, non-Pupil Premium children may also be included in this.

Research by the Sutton Trust and Education Endowment Foundation has found that one of the most effective ways of improving outcomes for all children is through effective formative assessment and feedback to pupils. Strategies to support this are used throughout the school. This year, our focus on growth mindset and attitude and skills for learning have supported children’s approach to learning in all year groups.

The financial support offered to Pupil Premium families has played an important role in ensuring that all children have access to school trips, curriculum enrichment activities and after-school clubs.
