Impact of the Pupil Premium Grant spending 2016/17

  • During the year we have met with each child’s parents or carers to ascertain their views about how to support them.
  • Of the year 2 pupils who have now moved onto Key Stage 3 only 1 failed to achieve a scaled score of 100 or more in all three curriculum areas.
  • 2 pupils are also SEN and only one of these pupils has had attendance issues. However, this has significantly increased from 88% attendance to 94% attendance. We believe that this is due to the emotional support and family liaison we put in place during the year.
  • 73% of pupil premium pupils are working at the expected standard for their age or above and 60% of pupil premium children are working at the greater depth standard in one or more curriculum areas. 27% of this group are working towards the expected standard.
