Pupil premium funding was introduced in 2011 and is given to school based on the number 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.
In 2018-19, 61% (306 pupils) at Park End Primary School trigger this funding mechanism. The money is targeted towards ensuring that the children in receipt of this funding make accelerated progress and have improved attainment.
The results achieved by the children in Park End Primary School in receipt of pupil premium funding in 2018 were a significant improvement upon the results achieved in 2017. The children in receipt of pupil premium funding outperformed all children nationally in both writing and mathematics. Children in receipt of pupil premium funding achieved a positive progress score in reading, writing and mathematics, which means that our pupils did better at Key Stage 2 than those with similar prior attainment nationally.
