Intended use of the Pupil Premium for 2018-19

For 2018-19 our school will receive £21020


Barriers to learning

There are no specific barriers to learning for the Pupil Premium Pupils in our school. In recent years many of the pupils have started school with attainment below that expected of their actual age. Pupils with Special Educational Needs are supported with a My Support Plan.


Planned Use

  • To provide LSA support in every class to enable:

Support for individuals/small groups of pupils in lessons.

Reduce group sizes in the teaching of phonics and other small group activities

  • ELSA training and support

To provide emotional support to identified pupils

  • Financial Assistance

To subsidise residential and day visits for pupils for whom the school receives the Pupil Premium Grant


Measuring impact

Impact will be measured by:

  • % of pupils achieving expected standards at the end of Key Stage One and Two
  • % of children achieving expected standards in other year groups
  • % of children making expected progress in Reading, Writing and Maths throughout the school
  • % of pupils participating in residential and educational day visits


Spending and impact is reviewed annually by the finance committee, attainment and progress is reviewed termly through pupil progress meetings
