General impact of funding.

Overall, money spent on interventions has had a positive impact on progress made by children in receipt of Pupil Premium. The gap between the groups is narrowing although the number of children in each year class should be taken into consideration when looking at figures: for example, in one year group only four children are in receipt of Pupil Premium and in another there are 11.

Where there are still large gaps, interventions or additional classroom support have been targeted at these year groups.

Children who have attended 1stclass@Number and 1stclass@Number2 interventions have seen an average increase in their number age of around 15 months over a three month period. All the children are assessed at the beginning and end of the intervention period. The progress made by the children is evident in their work books as well as end of term assessments.

Phonics interventions have had a positive impact on the number of children passing the Phonics screening test. These interventions will start in September, earlier than before with the expectation that this will further improve the pass rate and children’s reading and writing in general.

The use of Pupil Premium funding to subsidise all school trips has made trips more affordable for all children. (The cost of the Y6 residential at the end of the year has been subsidised by the School Sport Fund with additional money from Pupil Premium funding.) The percentage of children attending the Y6 residential has increased since it has been subsidised (from just over 50% to over 90% of the class). Reasons for children not attending do not tend to be financial.

  ‘Work at Home’ packs have proved popular, with the vast majority of families taking up the offer. Although it is still too early to assess the impact, the feedback from parents and children has been very positive. Tracking systems will be put in place to monitor homework returns from children who have received these packs.

Please read the attached Pupil Premium Strategy document for more information.

Thank you
