Pupil Premium 2015-16 Spending Review


Review of Pupil Premium Spending for 2015-2016

In 2015-2016, 69.4% of pupils were in receipt of Pupil Premium. This resulted in school receiving £268,000 of additional funding. The following report shows the impact of this spending upon pupil standards and progress.


Children in receipt of Pupil Premium

In Reading, at the beginning of the school journey, pupils in receipt of PP are significantly below the standards of their peers in reading. However, this gap closes completely by the end of Year 6 due to good progress made. There is still fluctuation in performance in the non-SATS year groups.

In Writing, children in receipt of PP perform less well in writing than their peers until upper KS2. This gap closes as effective teaching ensures that children make good progress from starting points. At the end of KS2, 100% of all children have made good progress. In turn, in 2016 PP children achieved better scores than their peers.

PP children are below the standards of their peers in Maths at the beginning of their time at Middlefield. Again this gap has completely closed at the end of Year 6. This is largely due to outstanding teaching in Year 6. PP children in other year groups are significantly behind their peers.



Children in receipt of Pupil Premium begin Year 1 well behind their peers. Middlefield is effective in closing these significant gaps for disadvantaged children. Children in receipt of Pupil Premium achieve good outcomes at least in line with their peers by the end of Key Stage 2. Progress is good from starting points in Reading, Writing and Maths.
