Pupil premium funding is given to schools based on the numbers of pupils in the school who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM). This additional funding includes all children who have been eligible for FSM within the last 6 years.
Since its introduction in 2011 this funding has increased from £400 to £1320 per eligible child. 67% of children at Park End Primary trigger this funding mechanism. This additional money is allocated to a range of initiatives and provision to ensure pupils make good levels of progress in learning, both academically and socially. The impact of the additional provision is accelerated progress and increased attainment in the areas of speaking and listening, reading, writing, maths and personal and social development
A Key School Improvement Priority for 2016-17 was to address the under-performance of pupil premium children in order to diminish the difference between the outcomes of pupil premium pupils and others nationally. The results for the pupil premium children in 2017 were a significant improvement upon the results gained in 2016. The children in receipt of pupil premium out performed all children nationally in writing, and there was an increase of 23% in the number of children in receipt of pupil premium that achieved national standard in combined subjects (reading, writing and maths) at the end of KS2.
