Impact-

How has the Pupil Premium fund contributed toward outcomes for children?

1.       Year 1 Phonic Test – Our pupils who receive Free School Meals outperformed the national figure for FSM by 7%. 

2.       Key Stage 1- Free School Meals pupils significantly outperformed national figures in reading, writing and maths.

3.       Key Stage 2 -  Free School Meals pupils significantly outperformed national figures in reading, writing and maths.

In terms of progress 100% of pupils receiving FSM made at least 2 levels of progress in Reading and Writing; in Maths 93% made 2 levels of progress. 

The value added to our FSM pupils between KS1 and 2 is significantly above national and the gap between Non Free School Meals and Free School Meals Pupils has virtually closed.
