Pupil Premium Allocation


  • We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils.

  • We ensure that children belonging to vulnerable groups, including those from socially disadvantaged backgrounds, are adequately assessed and provision is made to meet their needs.

  • In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free schools meals will be socially disadvantaged.

  • We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged will be in receipt of free school meals. We therefore reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any groups of pupils that the school deems to be socially disadvantaged.

All the work through pupil premium will be aimed at accelerating progress, moving children to at least age related expectations; initially this will be in English and Maths.

Pupil premium resources may also be used to target able children, who are eligible for the funding, to achieve  above age related expectations at the end of KS1 or  KS2.

The school will publish information on how they have used their pupil premium grant to address the issue of ‘narrowing the gap’ for socially disadvantaged pupils.

The school may use pupil premium if appropriate to address language barriers.

Barriers for educational achievement:

Boothferry pupils eligible for PPG have the following barriers.

  • Low early language acquisition
  • English as a second language
  • Difficulties in accessing specialist outside support due to financial strain and isolation.

Planned approach for 2018-2019

  • Small group interventions for reading, writing and Mathematics

  • Specialist teacher support for 1 to 1 and targeted small group work

  • Extra-curricular clubs and activities to support social, emotional and language skills and provide wider opportunities for pupils

  • Accelerated Reader purchased + training to encourage a love of reading

  • Circle Time/Friendship groups to support with confidence and self esteem

  • Subsidising educational visits and residential trips to enrich the curriculum

  • Specialist intervention/adaption/equipment

  • Delivering targeted speech and language support through trained staff in school

The Pupil Premium funding for Boothferry Primary for the financial year 2018-2019 is £125,400

Impact of Pupil Premium

As a result of the support put in place, the majority of pupils receiving free school meals make expected or above expected progress.

Pupil progress tracking is carried out on a regular basis and identifies any free school meals child at risk of under attainment.

Strategies are immediately identified to provide appropriate additional support to narrow the gap
