Our school’s Pupil Premium information is published here. We also share our sports premium and Special Education Need & Disabilities core offer. The Government has published information for schools on what premiums are.
- Want to learn more about the Pupil Premium Grant?
This year we have received more money due to an increase in the numbers of pupils eligible; if you feel your child may be eligible then please do get in touch with the school office who will be happy to assist. Alternatively, visit Lancashire County Council’s webpage where you can find out more and apply on line.
£51,360 Pupil Premium grant has been received and as before we have used this to provide our Home-School Liaison Officer, maintain full time support staff in each class and put aside an amount to support curriculum materials, payment for trips, payments for other aspects of school life etc. We monitor the progress of children eligible for this funding and work to support them in having as full a part in school life as possible.
We continued to invest the money in the same way as the previous year.
|TOTAL AMOUNT OF PPG RECEIVED||£33,060|
We have again seen a positive impact for our children who come under this heading. In our end of Key Stage 2 National Assessments in May 2018 we saw the following outcomes (2 eligible children, data from Analyse School Performance 2018 & IDSR 2018):
Average data for the last 3 years for disadvantaged children at the end of Key Stage 2:
Average Scale Score for Reading – 102.4
Average Scale Score for Maths – 99.2
Average Progress Scores (10 children)
Reading -0.39 (National average 0.31)
Writing 2.71 (National average 2.71)
Maths -2.94 (National average 0.31)
Our writing has been externally moderated and validated at key points. Maths average is lower due to one cohort out of the last three experiencing greater difficulties with Maths than others.
For our Key Stage 1 children, the following information applies:
4 children eligible.
Reading – 50% At or Greater than expected.
Writing – 50% At expected.
Maths – 25% At expected.
The children have a range of backgrounds and abilities and all were given support according to their individual need.
THIS FUNDING WAS USED AS FOLLOWS:
- We continued to fund the employment of a Home – School Liaison Officer to work with a range of families experiencing different levels of need. This enables us to support families in a range of ways.
- We continued to fund access to a range of different agencies who offer to support to children, for example Play Therapy to enable children to open and talk about issues which are challenging them.
- We continued to ensure that each class has a full time Teaching Assistant so that support is available.
- We continued to hold a fund to subsidise trips, participation in paid clubs, assistance with school uniform and other items to ensure that difficulty with paying did not prevent a child’s participation.
Funding levels over time:
2014/15 – £43,900
2015/16 – £40,200
2016/17 – £34,620
2017/18 – £33,060
2018-19 – £51,360
