Pupil Premium Statement 2018-2019

Pupil Premium Funding Statement: 2018 / 2019

The pupil premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. Children who are eligible or have been in receipt of free school meals will be registered so that the school has the additional money in their budget.

Schools, headteachers and teachers will decide how to use the Pupil Premium allocation, as they are best placed to access what additional provision should be made for individual pupils.

Support Provided by Pupil Premium Funding

Key Findings:


Vulnerable children have been better protected as a result of the support they have from the 1:1 learning mentor on both sites and also individual ELSA weekly sessions resulting in our pupil exclusion rate being very low compared to national data.

All Pupil Premium funded children in Years 4, 5 and 6 were funded to attend their residential trips. Further support has been provided to attend school trips. Additional support is also provided for this group to access the wrap around care that the school provides.

Children’s attitudes to learning are positive. Parents have attended some lessons with their children and have reported that all children are enjoying their learning, are on task and enthusiastic about their learning. Families have been supported and have been able to access additional resources.

Children are very active, enjoy sporting activities and are healthy. 100% of children answered yes to the question, ‘Do you like coming to this school?’

PUPIL PREMIUM FUNDING  2019 / 2020  -  Allocation of Funds:


Number of pupils and grant received

Total number of pupils on roll


Total number of pupils eligible for the grant


Total received in 2018/19 budget

£27, 600


Planned Support:

  • We have used this funding to provide the respective children with appropriate support so that they make the expected progress in their learning.
  • When pupils join our school we determine their needs and provide additional support so that pupils make more rapid progress.
  • Provide a 1: 1 pastoral support mentor to support  social and emotional development needs.
  • Ensure that all children in receipt of Pupil Premium funding have full access to school trips, residential, after school sporting clubs and school uniform.

Once we have determined areas for further support we target funding for:

  • ELSA 1: 1 sessions for children with social and emotional needs.
  • Ensuring  that there is a teaching assistant available to help children in receipt of Pupil Premium funding with reading, writing and maths.
  • Ensuring that pupils with social and emotional needs are given access to a teaching assistant and a personalised curriculum so that they can remain in school.
  • Higher Level Teaching Assistant time to deliver intervention programmes, out of class, for individuals / pairs of children. This is particularly important for pupils who may be lacking in key skills due to frequent changes of school. Teaching Assistants and HLTAs have had increased hours to focus on specific progress measured interventions. These include: Learn to Move, Power of One and Power of Two maths and reading support.
  • 1: 1 learning mentor support across the school, to ensure that all new children who enter the school form good friendship groups and settle quickly into the school.
  • Regular 1: 1 reading sessions with PP children  – 20 hours.
  • The above 1:1 learning mentors are also employed during lunchtimes to deliver physical activity and to ensure that children are supported pastorally during lunchtimes. As a result of this we have happy, active children who enjoy lunchtimes and are ready to start learning in the afternoons. 13.5 hours.
  • Provide well-targeted support to improve attendance, behaviour or links with families where these are barriers to a pupil’s learning.
  • Dedicated SENCO time to track pupils’ progress and determine future support programmes of work.
  • Time out of class for SENCO to attend ‘Service Family Forum’ meetings to improve provision for military families.
  • Liaison with CEAS for children posted overseas.
  • Sourcing outside help for families


Funding is also used to:

  • Provide free school meals for eligible children.
  • Pay for school uniform for eligible children
  • Pay for free sporting after school clubs.
  • Part fund every school trip, including residential, so that all pupils in receipt of Pupil Premium funding will benefit, not just those in year groups 4,5 and 6.
