Pupil Premium Spending 2013/14
Pupil Premium allocation £35000
The school’s data indicates that 100% of Year 6 children made at least two levels of progress from Key stage 1 to key stage 2. Therefore the progress of children entitled to FSM was the same as those without FSM.
Pupil Premium Spending 2012/13
Pupil Premium allocation £27,730
The school’s data shows that, over 2012-13, the progress of children with FSM was in line with the progress of those without FSM. Our data shows that Year 6 children last summer , entitled to FSM, achieved higher compared to others nationally.
The school is committed to improving achievement of all pupils and narrowing the gaps between outcomes of children eligible for FSM and those from wealthier families.
The respective children’s progress and attainment is tracked and monitored carefully to ensure they achieve their full potential.
