Pupil Premium and Assessment Data

Pupil Premium Strategy 2017-18

The link below states how the Pupil Premium was spent in 2016/2017:

Pupil Premium Strategy September 2017



The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011, and is paid by means of a specific grant based on school census figures for pupils registered as eligible for FSM in Reception to Year 11. For looked after children the Pupil Premium was calculated using the Children Looked After data returns (SSDA903). A premium has also been introduced for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces. This service premium is designed to address the emotional and social well-being of these pupils.

The Pupil Premium is additional to main school funding and it will be used by this school to address any underlying inequalities for children eligible by ensuring that funding reaches the pupils who need it most.


Pupil premium allocation and impact

Pupils that receive pupil premium at Eaton have historically shown good success both socially and academically.

The allocation for the academic year 2017-18 is outlined on the table below. The impact on these children again has been successful.  Attendance levels remain high, behaviour is good and academic progress has continued throughout the key stages.

Pupil Premium allocation and objectives for use during 2018-19

  1. The Pupil premium will be used to remove as far as possible the barriers faced by our disadvantaged pupils. We are determined that the children in our school will not be disadvantaged when compared to their better off peers. Barriers concerning lack of equipment or resources will be overcome. Learning support required will be put in place to support.


  1. The Pupil Premium will be used to provide additional educational support to further improve the progress and to raise the standard of achievement for these pupils.


  1. We will ensure that the additional funding reaches the pupils who need it most and that it makes a significant impact on their education and lives.



The headteacher and leadership team will regularly and rigorously monitor, evaluate and review the strategies we have put into place for Pupil Premium and report to the governing body on its progress and impact. Ultimately the performance of our children in end of KS assessments will be the deciding factor on whether we judge our approach as successful or not. We believe that in the future, as has been the case in the past, our children can achieve as well as those children who are not disadvantaged.


Strategy for using the funding

The school has looked carefully at the needs of each pupil and we have decided to use a range of intervention strategies which include:

  • providing small group work for pupils entitled to PP funding with an experienced teacher focussed on overcoming gaps in learning to help them make improved progress and to raise their standards of achievement
  • 1:1 support for pupils entitled to PP funding to help them make improved progress and to raise their standards of achievement
  • additional teaching and learning opportunities for pupils entitled to PP funding provided through trained TAs or external agencies to help them make further progress.
  • acquiring effective materials for pupils entitled to PP funding aimed at raising standards.
  • all our work through the pupil premium will be aimed at continued/accelerating progress.



School reviews the performance of pupils on a half-termly basis. Our Pupil Premium Strategy is linked with pupil performance and will thus be reviewed at least once per half-term.
