This year we have again received less money due to the numbers of pupils eligible, if you feel you may be eligible 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.
£33,060 Pupil Premium grant has been received and as before we have used this to provide our Home-School Liaison Officer and maintain full time support staff in each class. We also put aside a small amount to support curriculum materials, payment for trips, payments for other aspects of school life etc.
We continued to invest the money in the same way as the previous year.
Total amount of PPG received
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 2017 we saw the following outcomes (2 eligible children, data from Analyse School Performance 2017 & IDSR 2017):
Progress well above national levels; 1 child attained expected standard with the other not achieving it.
Progress below national levels with attainment also below expected standard.
Progress significantly above national levels; 1 child attained expected standard with the other not achieving it.
Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling
Both attained above the expected standard.
For our Key Stage 1 children, the following information applies:
6 children eligible.
Reading – 100% At or Greater than expected. 67% at Greater Depth.
Writing – 33% At expected.
Maths – 67% At expected.
R / W / M combined – 33% At or Greater
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 and other items to ensure that difficulty with paying should 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
