Pupil premium review 2018-2019

Pupil Premium 2015-2016

The Government give funding to schools for all children who are Looked After or who are entitled to free school meals.  This amount works out at approximately £1, 320 per eligible pupil per year and £1, 900 per Looked after Child.  Phoenix Primary School had 21 pupils eligible for this funding in 2015/16.

At Phoenix Academy we spent this money on creating an additional classroom in order to allow for more appropriate groupings in classes and between groups, providing an additional full time teaching assistant to work with pupils who require a greater level of support to manage their difficulties and access the curriculum and by funding trips to enhance the creative curriculum.  The following interventions were also delivered:-

  • Individual additional tuition for Literacy and Maths
  • Small group teaching for Literacy and Maths to allow setting across the school.
  • Booster groups to address target areas in Literacy and Maths.
  • Pragmatics
  • Mentoring
  • Anger management and interventions to reduce anxiety in the classroom
  • Beat Dyslexia
  • Bespoke learning programmes to address barriers to learning, including: Life education workshops

The aim of this work is to accelerate progress above national expectations in literacy and Maths. Progress was measured by progress steps against the new curriculum and are not comparable to previous data which used national curriculum levels

The impact of this additional support on the pupils who were eligible for Pupil Premium was as follows:-

72% of pupils made expected or accelerated progress in reading compared to national expectations.

  • 45% of pupils made expected or accelerated progress in writing compared to national expectations.
  • 61% of pupils made expected or accelerated progress in maths compared to national expectations
  • 84% of pupils made expected or accelerated progress in maths compared to national expectations
