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. 66% of children at Park End Primary trigger this funding mechanism. The number of children eligible has fallen this year by 9%.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 in speaking and listening, accelerated progress in
reading, accelerated progress in writing and accelerated progress in mathematics.
The end of Key Stage 2 results 2014 and 2015 evidence that children in receipt of pupil premium at Park End Primary made good progress and were broadly in line with others nationally achieving expected standard by the end of Key stage 2.
In 2016, the gap in performance between children in receipt of pupil premium achieving ‘At Standard’ by the end of Key Stage 2 and those not in receipt of pupil premium, both in school and nationally, has significantly increased. The attainment of those children in receipt of pupil premium is significantly below ‘Standard’.
A key School Improvement Priority for 2016-17 is 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.
