There is a dip in attainment of KS1 PP maths from 81 to 69.. This is 10% below national non PP (79) but above LA PP at 66%Splitting a large Year 6 class in Sept 2017 and employing an additional teacher resulted in improved combined data. This will remain a key focus for 2018/19
Attainment in Reading KS2 increased on last year and exceeded national none PP by 6% and LA. (86 v 67 v 80)Increased focus during half terms upon the progress of KS1 PP pupils in line with Non PP peers resulted in clearer direction for staff and therefore more targeted and flexible interventions supported by both teachers and TAs.
In writing PP pupils broadly in line with non PP national (86 v 83)All classes to embed Reciprocal reading and all teacher have received Peer CPD.
In maths PP pupils exceeded non PP national (86 v 81) and are above LA PP – 68%Additional purchse of class texts and reading books to promote reading.
PP pupils exceeded national non pupil premium in GSpaP (93 v 82).

Removed the ECAR intervention mid year and focused upon T4W. Some BRP interventions and staff CPD took place.Reading results do not support the continuation of this post and interventions are extended to more pupils and the need for flexibility among the groups is essential and driven from ongoing teacher and SLT monitoring of pupil data.8500
