Pupil Premium

 

Pupil Premium Performance

At Woodthorpe Primary School we monitor the progress of every pupil closely and offer programmes of additional support to any pupil who is at risk of underachievement. Within our half term pupil progress conferences we always start with a focus on children in receipt of the pupil premium and ensure that their needs are being met as a main consideration.

As well as this tight focus on a pupil’s academic progress we also spend time considering each pupil in a wider sense. We consider the amount of opportunities that pupils are exposed to and the amount of pastoral support needed to ensure that pupils are able to enter school everyday and focus on their learning.

Our curriculum aims at developing these experiences. Our English curriculum contains a ‘real’ activity every cycle and our curriculum plans are developed with engagement in mind.

The school has a pastoral team that is able to offer support to any family or child who is going through a crisis or who is finding their learning more challenging.

Below is the school data that compares the progress and attainment of our pupil in receipt of the pupil premium compared with those who are not.
