Pupil premium

Pupil Premium money is allocated to schools every year. The amount of money is based on the number of pupils eligible to take up free school meals (FSM).

Over the country children who are eligible for free school meals tend not to make as good progress or attain as well as those who are not eligible.

The government wants the money used to help to narrow the gap between children who are eligible for free school meals and those who are not. 

At Glebefields Primary School we look at the progress and attainment of all children as individuals to ensure that they have the best possible chance to do as well as they can with the resources we can afford. 

We have used this money to provide smaller teaching groups and increase the number of intervention groups. The results of this can be seen below.

PP Plan

Pupil Premium money continues to be spent on the provision of well trained teaching assistant staff as well as the provision of teachers who can carry out interventions and 1:1 work.

We have developed marking and personal feedback systems and systems to enable pupils to see how well they are progressing and what are their next steps against the new national curriculum. 

Despite this work the children across the school did not perform well in terms of attainment against the new SAT tests.

Please open documents listed above to see how the money has been spent in al PP areas.

2014/2015

Percentage of pupils eligible = 53.2%

Number of pupils eligible = 203

Total amount received = £262,600  (allocated April 2014/15)

Pupil Premium money continues to be spent on the provision of well trained teaching assistant staff as well as the provision of teachers who can carry out interventions and 1:1 work.

Each year group has just over 50% of it's pupils in receipt of pupil premium. The school uses this budget to ensure that we are able to respond to under achievement and behavioral issues that are barriers to learning.

This enables us to run teaching groups with a favourable pupil teacher ratio and to run intervention groups to narrow the gaps between those identified through pupil premium and other pupils.

Results last year again show that we are broadly in line with national figures.
