Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Spending 2016-17

During the financial year, 2016 - 2017, St Michael’s CE Infant School has received a Pupil Premium allocation of £7,480 which will be spent in the following ways:

  • Interventions in year 1 for phonics and guided reading (half hour per day) plus daily extra support

  • Subsidised enrichment activities, during and beyond the school day.

  • In class LSA support in Year 1

  • Tailored one to one support for individual children

  • The purchase of individual resources to support pupils in their learning

    What has been the impact of the Pupil Premium?

    We have matched the funding to individual children and then tracked their progress. Having identified children in all year groups who are underperforming, we are closing the gap for many of our children who are experiencing challenges with reading, writing or maths. Focussed tuition has had a positive effect on their learning.

    Our Pupil Premium pupils are provided with opportunities to extend their learning. Opportunities offered to Free School Meal children include: museum visits, after school clubs, workshops and Theatre in Education visits.

    Interventions were put in place in Year 2 which had a positive impact on pupil performance. Achievement among disadvantaged children by the end of Key Stage 1 is good. For example, in Key Stage 1 in 2015 all pupil scored well in reading and maths (2C or above). In these subjects, the children made at least expected progress or better compared to starting points. Three out of the four disadvantaged pupils reached the phonics screening threshold by the end of Key Stage 1.
