What is the impact?
In 2019 Pupil Premium funding removed the difference in the attainment of disadvantaged children at the end of KS1 at the expected level. At greater depth the difference has been diminished compared to 2016-17 and remains a target for further improvement in 2019-20. Assessment and tracking data demonstrate that all disadvantaged pupils make good progress throughout the school.
The following reports show our plans for this funding for the year ahead and also how the funding was spent last year and the impact in more detail.
