Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium money is funding that the school receives based on the number of children who are eligible for free school meals, (FSM) and children looked after (CLA) – together now termed by the DfE as disadvantaged. Historically, across the country many, although not necessarily all, disadvantaged children make slower progress and attain less well than non-disadvantaged children. The purpose of the Pupil Premium money is to target these children and to provide support to narrow any attainment gaps.

32.5% of our pupils are currently classified as disadvantaged.

Data evaluation:

  • At KS2 schools’ disadvantaged pupils attained above the national average in all areas apart from GPS – This was also the case for other pupils who show a larger gap to national. This is not therefore a purely disadvantaged pupil issue.
  • At KS1 disadvantaged pupils performed well above the national average in maths, above the average in writing and slightly below the average in reading. Other pupils performed slightly below the national in reading, writing and maths but under but slightly above for the national.
  • Progress for KS2 pupils who are disadvantaged are close to 0 and not significantly different to that of other pupils.
