All our work funded by the Pupil Premium will be aimed at accelerating progress so that the vast majority of children leave Crackley Bank Primary at, or above, the national average. We also aim for every child to make progress that is good or better, so that they leave having made expected progress from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 2.

 

 

Allocation and Impact 2015/16:

Pupil Premium Allocation

£113,820

Area

Costings (full year)

Impact

Precision Teaching x 2 staff

 £17,229

Progress made by Pupil Premium pupils throughout the school is in line with national data. The progress of Pupil Progress Year 6 pupils was below the National level in all areas and is a high priority for 2016/17

0.6 teacher Y5  - Additional Literacy and Maths

 £28,810

The additional support in Year 5 meant that they made expected progress in Maths through the year. Accelerated progress is still required in Y6 to ensure their attainment and progress results are in line with national data.

0.6 Y6 - Additional Literacy and Maths

 £26,490

The additional support in Y6 was disrupted by staff changes. Although the pupils made good progress in Y6 further progress was required and the cohort did not make progress in line with other pupils.  

1: 1 TA

 £7,282

Support for Y1 pupils to ensure phonics achievement is well above national data – this was very successful and data is again above the national level.
