Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium provides additional funding on top of the main funding a school receives. It is targeted at students from disadvantaged backgrounds to ensure they benefit from the same opportunities as students from less deprived families.

At Coleridge we have high aspirations and ambitions for all our children, we believe that all children have the right to an outstanding education. Coleridge strives to inspire children to become creative problem solvers, ready to thrive and succeed in the 21st Century. We aim to give children a positive first experience of learning and to make them responsible citizens who appreciate the value of community.

Pupil premium money is carefully targeted to support children from disadvantaged backgrounds to ensure they benefit from the same opportunities as students from less deprived families. At Coleridge we ensure that spending is directly linked to narrowing the gaps in attainment between pupil premium children and non-pupil premium children. We make use of our own data to expand existing interventions. We strive to ensure that children are exposed to outstanding teaching and learning on a day to day basis. We also make use of research when evaluating interventions and considering the implementation of new interventions.

As a school we have a good record of addressing the needs of our pupil premium children. To further enhance our practice over the course of 2016/17 the school invested considerable time ensuring that systems for tracking children’s learning were effective and accurate. It is also imperative to not simply rely on raw data to understand how our children are progressing. Observations, learning walks, pupil progress discussions and lesson study also contribute to our understanding of how different children are performing across the school.

For the year 2017/18, the school received £118,460 in Pupil Premium funding.

Our objectives for Pupil Premium spending in 2017/18 are:

  • To close the gap in attainment between pupil premium children and non pupil premium children in writing and maths.
  • To have a higher percentage of pupil premium children achieving GDS at the end of KS2 in all subject areas.
  • To improve the attendance of pupil premium children.
