What is Pupil Premium?

The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools and day care providers in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.

  • To continue to provide all children with high quality teaching and learning experiences.
  • To continue to use targeted intervention and support to close the attainment gap.
  • To develop the curriculum to engage all learners, develop independence, resilience, collaboration and provide challenge.
  • To provide a range of quality first hand experiences to raise aspirations, engage children in their learning and expose them to the world around them.
  • To provide support to ensure that the children are ready to learn.

  • Narrowing the gap between the most disadvantaged children and their peers

Findings: Autumn '17

From looking at the overview data, we have identified that our lowest areas are:

Understanding the World - The World 88%

Understanding the World - The World is our lowest area this term. This could be due to it not being the right term or time for planting or plants to grow. However, over the next term, we will be providing planting activities for the children to take part in and we will be talking the children out on various walks, encouraging them to talk about living things and the world around them.
