Pupil Premium

Pupil premium was introduced in April 2011.   The funding is intended to help disadvantaged pupils to 'close the gap' and to raise attainment and improve progress.

Children who are eligible include:

  • Pupils who have been registered for Free School meals (FSM) at any point in the last six years;
  • Children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months;
  • Children of armed services personnel.

Funding and Investment

Academic Year 2016-2017 

Impact for Pupil Premium Funding as per Inspection Dashboard 2015-2016

"Strengths - disadvantaged KS2 pupils' progress in all subjects was significantly above average overall and not significantly below average for any prior attainment group."

"Disadvantaged KS2 pupils had an average scaled score equal to or above the National score for other pupils in Reading and Mathematics"

This is measured through:

  • Pupil progress and tracking data opportunities
  • Key Stage data (Early Years, KS1 and KS2) alongside Local and National comparisons
  • Parent and pupil voice (enjoyment, attitudes to learning nurture, behaviour etc)
  • Attendance
  • One-One assessment and follow-up 3 months and 6 months post-intervention
  • Music Board Association exams and orchestra for disadvantaged students

Based pm 2015-2016 impact, Pupil Premium Funding will support disadvantage pupils through:

  1. Glascote Counts Initiative (Early intervention in Maths)
  2. Family Support/Attendance/Forest School Leader
  3. School Reading Manager
  4. Music Lessons including FSM orchestra
  5. Play Leader Lunchtimes
  6. Subsidised trips
  7. Outdoor Education
  8. Extra Curricular activities

Funding for 2016-2017 is £146.000

Progress for FSM (Free School Meals) pupils shows that school is closing the gap, especially in areas of priority such as Reading and Maths and this is regularly and rigorously monitored by the Governors.   A Governance Review from the Local Authority, shows that Governance is good and outstanding in some areas.
