 Analysis demonstrates that this use of funding to provide specialist teaching and a rich curriculum through taught sessions and out of school activities is engaging pupils, enhancing their knowledge of the world and  ensuring excellent attitudes to learning.

 The impact of this was:

  • In 2017 progress during KS2 for disadvantaged pupils was in the top 10% nationally for both writing and mathematics and above average for reading. 
  • In other year groups the gaps between Pupil Premium pupils and non-Pupil Premium are narrowing.
  • 69.9% of children from YRS1-6 have represented the school. 92.7% of children in KS2 have represented the school. 100% of children in Yrs5-6 have represented the school.

 

Pupils had access to a wide range of opportunities:

  • Jewish visitor to give a personal experience of the Jewish faith
  • Reception children all visited the Olive school
  • All the school watched a high quality pantomime - The Hunchback of Notre Dame
  • Year 5 pupils had a Play in a day experience
  • Year 4 pupils had a drama workshop by Burnley Mechanics
  • All KS2 pupils had a visit to the seaside.
  • The KS2 choir sang at Last Choir singing.

The main barriers to educational achievement faced by our eligible pupils are:

  • Limited levels of determination and willingness to persevere through a task.
  • Limited range of vocabulary and language skills.
  • Poor retention of number facts and ability to apply this to a range of situations.
  • Limited support with reading from outside school.
  • Limited opportunities for taking part in extra-curricular activities outside school.

The estimated pupil premium grant for the school in 2017/18 is £86,660.
