Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
Evaluation of Pupil Premium spent across the school:
Careful analysis shows that the Pupil Premium funding received in 2017-18 was spent in a range of ways and has had a significant impact on the pupils it was designated for as well as others. This impact is demonstrated through the progress and attainment the pupils have achieved by the end of the academic year.
Pupil Premium spending is a key feature of the School’s Development Plan
Accurate assessment of barriers to pupils' learning
Regular reporting and scrutiny from Governors
An increased awareness amongst teachers and teaching assistants of Pupil Premium pupils
Increased targeted support for pupils in a wide range of aspects
Enhanced monitoring and evaluation of targeted support groups through pupil progress meetings
Greater emphasis on tracking Pupil Premium pupils’ progress during the year
Evidence shows that where any gaps in attainment exist for pupils eligible for funding, effective spending of the Pupil Premium Funding ensures the gap in attainment for these pupils narrows and for most disappears as pupils move through the school. Some eligible pupils achieve well above their age related expectations by the end of Year Four.
It is clear that from looking at assessment data, the earlier underachievement is identified and high quality teaching and intervention put in place, the quicker any gaps are closed. Through well-timed and targeted support, all pupils eligible for Pupil Premium in Stoke Prior First School achieve well by the end of Year Four.
The document below outlines the school's strategy for 2018 - 19 as well as evaluating the impact of spending from 2017-18.
There is a designated Governor responsible for the close monitoring of Pupil Premium spending within school and termly updates are provided to all Governors.
