Pupil Premium Grant Expenditure Report 2015-2016


Context of the School

Kenley Primary School is a one form entry grant maintained primary school catering for pupils aged 4 – 11 years. At present it has has two forms of entry in Year 3. The school currently has 224 children with a maximum capacity of 240.

Kenley Kindergarten, an external provider, run the nursery on the same site, along with a breakfast and afterschool provision from 7.30 am to 6pm.

Our vision is that we provide all our children with an education that promotes curiosity and perseverance within an engaging curriculum, encouraging everyone to be motivated, successful learners whilst ensuring that appropriate provision is made for vulnerable groups.

We work hard to close the gap between disadvantaged children and their peers and constantly seek to ensure that all pupils achieve their full potential.


What is Pupil Premium?

Pupil premium is additional funding provided by the Government to address the gap in educational attainment and long term economic wellbeing between disadvantaged children and their peers. We, as a school, are committed to ‘Closing the Gap’ between vulnerable pupils and their peers and work to ensure that the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is utilised effectively to this ends.

Pupils qualifying for the PPG funding are those who have been defined as eligible for free school meals at some point in the last 6 years and those who have been ‘looked after’ for one day or more.


Objectives of Pupil Premium Spending

The aim of the spending is to accelerate progress for those pupils in receipt of PPG funding so that they make at least expected progress each year and greater than expected progress across each key stage, along with achieving the nationally expected standard for their year groups and ensuring that that the average attainment for pupils eligible for PPG is similar to the whole cohort.

Measuring the Impact

The school evaluates the impact of provision on each pupils at the end of the assessment period focusing on both pupil attainment and progress. The School Progress Report details attainment made by all pupils and vulnerable groups. We also use the DfE published results in the RAISEonline document to analyse school data.

From the attainment it can be seen that Pupils in receipt of Pupil Premium funding have the same attainment as non-disadvantaged pupils nationally for reading and higher than non-disadvantaged pupils nationally for writing. In maths attainment of those in receipt of pupil premium is below other pupils nationally and the whole cohort – this will be addressed through additional targeted support. For progress there continues to be a gap between the whole cohort and pupils in receipt of Pupil Premium Funding – however progress comparisons are well above national floor targets in all areas.

Economically disadvantaged pupils are improving their level of attainment and the gap is closing especially in reading and writing, however there are still improvements to be made which we have addressed this year through targeted intervention.


The confidence and independence of disadvantaged pupils has improved by having access to:

  • Learning outside of the curriculum on school journey
  • Access to extra-curricular sporting activities

  • Teaching Assistant support focused on target groups and ensuring equal access to the curriculum

  • The opportunity to play a musical instrument and take part in music ensembles to an audience.
