Section 2: National results for Pupil Premium children in the school

Early Years Pupil Premium

6 of the 9 Pupil Premium children achieved a good level of development (GLD). 2 of the 3 children who did not achieve the GLD have additional needs (on SEN support).

Y1 Phonics

  • The expected standard is a minimum mark of 32 out of 40 in the phonics screening check. Of the 4 Pupil Premium children who did not get the expected, 1 child has an Educational Health Care Plan (EHCP) and was disallowed, whilst 2 of the other 3 children have SEN support. All 4 children are boys.
  • The strong performance of Pupil Premium children is evidence that funded intervention work has been successful. Materials for intervention were chosen carefully to meet specific needs and training provided to support the use of these materials. Robust tracking throughout the year ensured that targeted support was appropriate and contributing to ongoing improved outcomes.


Although there is a difference in maths compared with the whole cohort and national averages, of the 8 children who scored below the expected standard, 4 receive SEN support and 1 has an EHCP.

In reading and writing Pupil Premium children have performed slightly better than the National average for FSM and the gap with the whole cohort is closing.


  • The % of Pupil Premium children in Y6 was very high - well above school average (30%)
  • Gap is closed between Pupil Premium and Non-Pupil Premium for reading. This is evidence of the impact of Y6 learning groups, a focus on quality first teaching as opposed to withdrawal intervention groups (EEF shows that these interventions are high cost for low impact), refined lesson structure and the use of challenging resources to develop reading comprehension.
  • Data on ASP shows that disadvantaged pupils continue to make less progress from end of key stage 1 to end of key stage 2 in reading, writing and maths compared with pupils nationally who started with similar assessment results at the end of key stage1


  • Continue to build on the success of strategies implemented over the past 2 years to further improve reading outcomes
  • Utilise the newly devised Maths Mastery Intervention training materials and programme to address gaps in Pupil Premium children progress in maths

Section 3: Internal Data July 2018 for pupil premium pupils

GL Summative Assessments for Maths and English

                                                                 (The National average score is 100)

  • Annual progress tests in English and maths for FSM children shows a year on year improvement against National standards.
  • The Year 6 mean average for the FSM group is slightly lower than national for 2018.

Year 6 context of 35 Pupil Premium children:     

  • 12 children are EAL (12 different languages)
  • 3 EHC
  • 12 SEN
  • 8 attendance
  • 4 vulnerable and receiving family or individual support via our Parent Support Advisor or Learning Mento

Rising Stars Teacher Assessment data: Summer 2 (no RS Summer data for Y2 and Y6 due to National tests)

Children working at or above expected in reading

  • There is a clear gap in reading between Pupil Premium children and the whole cohort
  • Year 1 is a challenging group
  • Year 1 context of 15 Pupil Premium children:
  • 5 children are EAL (5 different languages)
  • 2 EHC
  • 3 SEN
  • 3 attendance
  • 4 vulnerable and receiving family or individual support via our Parent Support Advisor or Learning Mentors
  • 1 child protection

Children working at or above expected in SPAG:

  • Gap closed or nearly closed in Year 1 and Year 5 is evidence of the impact of the rigorous Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation programme that is being used across the school.
  • Year 3 and Year 4 have a higher % of EAL Pupil Premium children (Y3 – 35%; Y4 – 37%) therefore language acquisition presents a challenge.

Children working at or above expected in maths:

  • There is a gap across the school in maths


  • Whole school focus on using challenging texts across the curriculum in order to expand children’s knowledge and understanding of subject specific and technical vocabulary (linked to SDP).
  • All year groups to conduct Maths Meetings 3x times a week to reinforce and consolidate maths vocabulary and concepts.
  • Y6 and Y5 to regularly practise maths reasoning questions where the context and language used is unfamiliar (particularly for EAL pupil premium children).
  • 20 Pupil Premium children will participate in the YES Futures programme next academic year in order to raise confidence and resilience.
