Pupil Premium funding is given to public schools in England to spend on raising the attainment of disadvantaged students. Schools with a Year 7 cohort also receive a Literacy and Numeracy Catch-up Premium to spend on supporting students who have not achieved at least a level 4 in reading and/or maths at Key Stage 2.
Pupil Premium students achieved 51% A*-C including English and Maths with the performance of all students at 54%, which shows a small gap in achievement for 2016, which is excellent.
The approximate total costing for Literacy and Numeracy Catch-up is £31,499 for 2016/17. Some of our objectives include improving the reading ages of the 40 students with a reading age of 8-9.4 years to above 9.5 years, and for the 62 students with a KS2 scaled score of 91-99 to be on target in maths and improve to a NC L4b.
