Pupil Premium

Service Pupil Premium (SC)

We have 10 pupils for whom we receive this type of pupil premium. Over the past year we have continued to have an after school club. Parents have expressed great satisfaction with the club and the pupils are keen to stay and take part in activities. Our Headteacher/Leadership and Management Team continues to work closely with the Garrison to ensure they know about our school and our pupils’ needs.

Free School Meals Pupil Premium

We have 13 pupils for whom we receive this type of pupil premium. For these pupils we ensure their personalised curriculum is appropriately tailored to their needs and staffed accordingly.

Children Looked After Pupil Premium (CLA)

We have 5 pupils for whom we receive this type of pupil premium. For these pupils we account for the Pupil Premium in their biannual LAC reviews where it is evaluated and adjusted as needed. The money is mainly spent on staffing, training and resourcing to access regular outside play, Rebound and pool/hydrotherapy sessions.

How do we know we are making a difference with the different types of Pupil Premium?

We analyse all pupil data termly and annually, if we believe the pupil is not making at least good progress we put in additional support. All pupil progress data in this group of pupils show at least good progress with some making excellent progress.

Further analysis is available to better understand why the progress of Services Children is not as strong as that of the pupils in receipt of other types of Pupil Premium. Factors which influence progress for these students include health needs, attendance and other environmental factors which can and do impact upon progress. To address this, we work closely with families and other stakeholders, we ensure that our staff training schedule responds to identified areas of need to support best practice and outcomes, which are regularly monitored and reviewed as part of the school’s quality assurance processes.

The graphs outline the average rate of progress (according to MAPP data) for a range of different groups across the school population. This is then used as a co-operative measure for all targeted groups. This data demonstrates that pupil progress for pupils who are eligible for Pupil Premium is broadly in line with the rate of whole school progress.

A more detailed analysis draws out the finer detail:

  • Children eligible for Free School Meals sit just below rate of progress
  • Services Children perform below whole school and other Pupil Premium groups
  • Children who are Looked After (LAC) perform slightly better than whole school rate of progress
