Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium allocation for Denbury Primary School for the financial year 2015 - 2016 is £24,780.  This is based on a total of 20 pupils on Free School Meals, Children in Care and Children from Service families.

The money allocated is being used in the following ways:

  • School Counsellor one morning a week to support pupils in need of this service;
  • Part funding a full-time Pastoral Worker to run Thrive and other pastoral programmes;
  • 1:1 after school tuition for specific needs for selected pupil premium pupils - focusing on Numeracy and Literacy;
  • Key Stage 2 Maths Intervention Programme (Rapid Maths);
  • Key Stage 1 Maths Intervention Programme (Dynamo Maths);
  • Key Stage 2 targeted Literary Intervention.

Due to the small numbers taking SATs at Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 we are restricted on reporting the results as it would identify specific pupils.

Over the last academic year the gap between Pupil Premium and Non-Pupil Premium has reduced and is smaller than the national average.

The gap between Pupil Premium and Non-Pupil Premium pupils at Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 is below the national average.  In Key Stage 2 the gap is above the national average, although the gap is closing.
