Conclusion: The relatively small cohort of pupils eligible for pupil premium in Year 1 did not do as well as national or non-eligible pupils. The school has a very effective recovery programme which is reflected in the figures for Year 2 being above national (only 1 child had not achieved the expected level). Pupil premium spending is effective in supporting progress in phonics. An area for development is the attainment of eligible pupils in Year 1.

Conclusion: Although the 2015 results are not as high as those from 2014, it can been seen that over a period of time, at Warden Hill Primary School in KS2, children in receipt of pupil premium funding do exceptionally well in comparison to national averages and often exceed the school’s own very high standards for pupils not eligible for pupil premium. Funding is very well focused on ensuring progress and attainment.

Although pupils eligible for pupil premium have made slightly less progress in the last year, their attainment is above that of those not eligible suggesting no significant gap. Outcomes would support a judgement of effective use of pupil premium funding.
In 2013-14 the school’s own tracking systems showed children in receipt of Pupil Premium making an average of 4 APS progress whilst the non-recipients made 4.1 APS progress. This small gap is far less than the national or local averages and suggests that the premium is being very well spent at Warden Hill Primary School.

Overall: Pupil premium funding is having a very significantly positve impact on the attainment and achievement for pupils eligible for pupil premium.



Planned Spending for 2015-16
