Pupil Premium Grant

What is Pupil Premium?

 

The Pupil Premium is additional Government funding provided to schools to help raise attainment amongst disadvantaged children.

It is allocated according to the number of pupils on roll who:

  • are eligible for free school meals (FSM); 
  • are children of service families; 
  • have been ‘Looked After’ (in care) for 6 months or more. 

 

In 2012, funding was extended to include pupils who have been eligible for free school meals within the past 6 years.

 

It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. However, schools are to be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low income families.

 

From September 2012, this information must be published on the school website. Please see below for information regarding how the pupil premium income was spent in the last financial year, the impact of this funding, and the plans for future spending.

 

Funding for 2019/20 = £77,880  (£1,320 per eligible child)

 

Other links below will provide you with further information to help you understand the background to Pupil Premium and how we, as a school, have spent the additional funding to improve provision and target interventions for the benefit of all.

 

We cannot emphasise enough how important it is to register with school for Free School Meals if your children are eligible.

 

Please see the School Meals page for more information.

 

 

Pupil Premium Impact Statement 2018-19 (Summary)

 

How the way we spent our allocation made a difference to disadvantaged pupils in 2018/19:

 

At the end of Key Stage 2 (i.e. in Year 6) there were 16 disadvantaged pupils in total. In Key Stage 2, progress is measured. Ofsted’s key focus is on progress (achievement) and this is measured between Year 2 and Year 6 assessment outcomes.

  • Disadvantaged KS2 pupils at St. Mary’s had a progress score of -4 in Reading compared to a national disadvantaged pupils reading progress score of 0.3
  • Disadvantaged KS2 pupils at St. Mary’s had a progress score of -2.6 in Writing compared to a national disadvantaged pupils reading progress score of 0.3
  • Disadvantaged KS2 pupils at St. Mary’s had a progress score of -5.5 in Mathematics compared to a national disadvantaged pupils reading progress score of 0.4

 

In Key Stage 1, there were 11 disadvantaged pupils in total.
In Key Stage 1, only attainment is measured – not progress.

  • In Key Stage 1, Disadvantaged children’s Reading at the expected standard was 100% compared to a national figure of 62% in the same group.
  • In Key Stage 1 Disadvantaged children’s Writing at the expected standard was 80% compared to a national figure of 55% in the same group.
  • In Key Stage 1 Disadvantaged children’s Mathematics at the expected standard was 80% compared to a national figure of 62% in the same group. 

 

In Year 1, there were 6 disadvantaged children. Only attainment in the phonic check is measured in Year 1, not progress.

  • In Year 1, 67% of disadvantaged children passed the phonic check compared to a national figure of 71% in the same group. This means that 4 out of 6 disadvantaged children passed the phonic check. 

 

At the end of Year 2 in 2019, 100% of the 5 disadvantaged children at St. Mary's had passed the phonic check, compared with 85% nationally in the same group. 

 

In EYFS (Reception class) there were no disadvantaged children in 2018/19. There is no progress measure for EYFS, only attainment of the early learning goal and expected standards in key areas.
