We decided to allocate the money in this way after analysing the needs of the individual children, and noticing that there is indeed a noticeable gap between how well the children achieve compared to children not eligible for the Pupil Premium.  As a school we also introduced Pupil Progress Meetings, where teachers meet with the senior management to discuss progress of all pupils, but in particular children eligible for the Pupil Premium.

 

What was the impact of the spending?

As you can see, our spending of the Pupil Premium money last year supported the children in making progress at least in line with their peers.  In fact, in reading and writing the children who received extra support actually achieved better on average than their peers, closing the gap between them.  This was not the case in maths where there is a bit more of a gap between levels of progress.

There is still a noticeable gap between the average levels the Pupil Premium children achieve, and that of the non-Pupil Premium children.  The additional progress means that that gap is closing in at least Literacy, but further work needs to be done to close this gap faster.
