Pupil Premium 2015-2016

During the 2015-2016 financial year, our school received £4860 of targeted pupil premium. This was made in respect of 3 ever6 amounts of £1320 and 3 service children amounts of £300.

Pupil premium is additional funding to main school funding.  The government believes that this extra funding is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals, children who have been looked after for more than 6 months, children who are adopted and children of service personnel.  The idea behind this payment is to give extra funding to support the pupils who need it most.

At Sutton upon Derwent C.E. Primary School, Pupil Premium has been spent on the following resources:

Impact of pupil premium spending 2015-2016

The school’s evaluation of its own performance is rigorous.  Tracking of progress over time for each pupil is thorough, and so we can quickly identify any dips and develop sensible strategies and interventions to promote improvement.

  • A wide range of data is used – achievement data, pupils’ work, observations, learning walks, case studies, book trawls and staff, parent and pupil voice.
  • Assessment Data is collected half termly so that the impact of interventions can be monitored regularly.
  • Assessments are closely moderated to ensure they are accurate
  • Regular feedback about performance is given to children and parents
  • Interventions are adapted or changed if they are not working
  • A designated member of the SLT maintains an overview of pupil premium spending
  • A governor is given responsibility for pupil premium

We will use Raise Online, KS2 and KS1, Phonics, EYFS SMIFs (Local education authority data summary) as well as whole school data (using Target Tracker) to evaluate impact in terms of attainment and progress.
