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.

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.
