Pupil Premium


The school has recieved £31980 pupil premium funding for the 2017/18 financial year.


  • The school has continued to use this funding to ensure that there are enough teaching assistants to allow for sufficiently small groups to teach phonics effectively. 75% of children passed the phonics screening test in 2017 even though six children joined this cohort late in the year and 35% were children in reciept of pupil premium. We believe this is effective use of the funding, as ensuring children can read impacts positively on all other curriculum areas.
  • The funding has also been used to provide one to one support for children where SEND funding doesn't cover their full needs. 
  • An additional teaching assistant has been employed this year to allow improved support for those children in year Three and Four. This allows a range of interventions to take place and for the class to be taught in smaller groups during the morning. This is having a positive impact in raising attainment for those children who failed to attain a secure level of understanding in Key Stage One. This year we have been able to further extend our offer of counselling and now have an hour's contracted counselling per week with additional bespoke sessions added as needed. This has been very successful in supporting the emotional needs of vulnerable children.
  • Further support has been provided to Y6 pupils and those children in reciept of pupil premium have attained well as a result. SATS results for KS2 showed that the percentage of children meeting the expected standard was higher than national average in all areas.




The school has received £17160 of pupil premium funding in the financial year 2016/17.  

  • The school has identified phonics and reading as a key barrier to achievment and has prioritised its effective teaching. 
  • Pupil Premium funds additional staffing to allow the delivery of 'Read Write Inc ' phonics teaching in small groups daily.
  • 83% of children passed the Y1 phoncs test in 2016 (National 81%)
  • One of the schools Ofsted targets is to develop provision in EYFS, in the last year Pupil Premium has allowed additional staffing to continue even though the cohort is small. In 2016 the children achieving a GLD was in line with national average.
  • 1500 has been used to provide 1 to 1 bespoke counselling for children with emotional needs. This has been provided by the charity 'CASY Your Space' of Newark.

The school has received £18200 sports premium in the 2017/18 financial year. The school has used this for a number of projects:


  • Additional free after school clubs for a wide range of sports.
  • Additional coaches to deliver specific sports.
  • Transport to intra school sporting fixtures.
  • Additional CPD and coaching for staff as part of their weekly PE lessons.
  • Climbing wall to vsist the school for two days in the spring term.
  • Provision of new equipment to allow the delivery of additional gymnastics club.
  • Membership of local schools league.

There is a very high level of pupil participation in a wide range of clubs and inter school activities. The funding has allowed children to take part in a wider range of sports including access to local providers such as Woodhal Spa Golf centre. The purchase of new equipment is allowing children to take part in new sports within school and improving sustainability of such activities.
