Pupil Premium 2017/2018

The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement.

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’).

Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after by the local authority continuously for more than six months, and children of service personnel.

The government requires all schools to report on the amount of funding received, how it will be allocated/spent and the effect of this expenditure on pupil attainment.

For the academic year 2017 – 2018, Willington Primary School will receive an estimated £148, 380 in Pupil Premium funding. In order to continue to raise standards and support vulnerable children it will be used in the following ways:

Attainment of ‘Disadvantaged Pupils’

[table id=49 /]

  • EYFS data shows the percentage of disadvantaged children reaching GLD has increased by 16% from 2015 to 2017.

[table id=50 /]

  • The percentage of disadvantaged pupils reaching the required phonic standard has risen from 40% in 2015 to 62% in 2017.
  • Whilst the % of Y2 disadvantaged resit pupils dropped from 83 to 75 this was due to 1 child out of a small cohort of 4 not reaching the standard.

[table id=51 /]

For the 2017 Y2 cohort:

  • 62% reached expected standard in reading – an increase of 12% over the 50% achieving GLD at the end of EYFS.
  • 46% reached expected writing compared to 42% in reception – this is a focus area of 2017-18
  • 54% reached expected in maths. This is lower than the 58% at the end of EYFS due to a high attaining child moving from the area part way through year 2.

[table id=52 /]

  • The attainment of disadvantaged pupils has risen in all subjects and in particular the percentage achieving expected standard in Reading, Writing and Maths combined has risen from 35% in 2016 to 53% in 2017.

[table id=53 /]

  • The value added figure for maths in 2017 is significantly above national for 2016.
  • Maths and writing VA have been above national for the last two years but reading, whilst not significantly below national, remains a priority area for 2017.
