Pupil Premium


North Ferriby C of E Primary School
Statement regarding the spending of the Pupil Premium

At our School:

  • We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all the pupils.
  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed.
  • In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged.
  • We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.
  • Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals. Limited funding and resources means that not all children receiving free school meals will be in receipt of pupil premium interventions at one time.



Pupil Premium Statement for 2016-17:

Total Pupil Premium funding received in 2016-17                 = £34,000

  • Small group work.
  • 1:1 support.
  • Additional teaching and learning opportunities provided through trained Teaching Assistants or external agencies.
  • Acquiring effective materials aimed at raising standards, particularly in reading and mathematics.

Pupil Premium attainment for Reading and Maths has improved from last year but the attainment for Writing has dipped.  Therefore writing will be a focus for next year.




% making GOOD or better progress:

Number of Pupils:










1 child in reading, 3 children in writing and 2 children in maths have not made GOOD progress this year.  They will be targeted next year to ensure they make accelerated progress.



Focus for 2015 - 2016:

1.    Only 55% of our pupil premium pupils are at Age Related Expectations for writing.  Extra intervention will be put in place to ensure that this improves to at least 70% by the end of the year.  Progress towards this will be monitored by governors each term.

2.    1 child in reading, 3 children in writing and 2 children in maths have not made sufficient progress this year.  These children have been highlighted to their new class teachers.  Using the funding allocated to their class they will ensure that interventions take place to accelerate progress for these children.

3.    All class teachers are aware of their pupil premium pupils and of the funding allocated to their class.  They are also aware of the availability of our two ELSAs which can be used to ensure that external influences do not have a negative impact on the progress of the pupil premium children in their class.


Use of Pupil Premium Funding 2016-17:

  • TA hours have been carefully allocated to each class according to their Pupil Premium numbers
  • 2 full time trained ELSAs have been timetabled to provide fixed term programmes of social and emotional support to pupil premium pupils (£10,000)
  • Money has been set aside in the budget to secure the services of specialist outsourced support should this be deemed necessary (£2000)
