Impact 2015-16

Due to the small numbers of pupils involved various programmes have been put in place for individual pupils making group impact difficult to judge in areas other than progress and attainment.


KS2 PP pupils had an average scaled score equal to or above the national score for other pupils in reading, writing and mathematics. 


100% of PP pupils in reading were in top 10% and were above the national score in writing.


Attendance of PP children has stayed the same (96% in 2015 to 96% as of May 2016,) keeping their attendance at higher than similar groups nationally.


60% of PP children attend Breakfast Club on a daily basis with 30% regularly attending After School Club (school transport prohibits this from being any higher.)

Specialist Teacher and TA support has had a positive impact in helping children develop and increase their self-esteem.


Instrument tuition provided for any PP child who wanted to take up the offer. (56%)

1 pupil has since gone on to pass Grade 1 guitar with distinction.

6 pupils have been to Paris to present their film at the British Film Institute and are due to go to Edinburgh in 2017

All pupils have been given an IPad Mini for school enabling them to be familiar with and develop skills using the latest technology.
