Impact of Pupil Premium Money 2016-17

Our disadvantaged pupils did extremely well in their end of year assessments, comparing very well, and sometimes better than non disadvantaged children from across the country.

This shows that the impact of extra pupil premium funding has had a very positive affect on pupil premium children.

Inclusion and involvement outcomes

Disadvantaged children from years 4, 5 and 6 accessed residential trips over the course of the year. Alongside this, every class accessed numerous class trips termly funded by pupil premium. The school mini buses were used to support some disadvantaged pupils in getting to school and supporting their attendance.

All disadvantaged children have access to a class iPad this year, while children from Year 2 upwards have their own individual ipad.  The school blog site has increased the opportunities for disadvantaged children to write, while providing iPads has increased the opportunities to access the blog site in extracurricular school clubs.

Disadvantaged children have access to over 40 'free' clubs before and after school, which are funded by the school. A number of our children have gone onto county level sports, directly due to funding put into clubs.

Conclusions about impact of Pupil Premium

In some areas our KS2 disadvantaged children attain equally well if not better than non disadvantaged children nationally.

In particular disadvantaged children's progress was in the top 10% of schools for maths and reading, while writing was above the national average.

In the Year 1Phonics check, disadvantaged children outperformed non disadvantaged children nationally and have done done exceptionally well for the last three years.

For disadvantaged children working at the expected level by the end of KS1, Byker Primary  pupils attain very well, often better than non-disadvantaged  pupils nationally.

Although inclusion and involvement is difficult to measure, we feel that it is of great value to the children in enhancing their own experiences and supporting their learning and relationships within school.
