Pupil Premium Report

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 as an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. . It was allocated to children from low-income families who were known to be eligible for free school meals in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings, and children who had been looked after continuously for more than six months.

Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However they are responsible for how they use the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families and the other target groups. In most cases the Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable.  It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for individual pupils within their responsibility.

Year Pupil Premium
2016-2017 £46800
2017-2018 £44500
2018-2019 £48600


The range of provision which governors may consider include:-

Reducing class size; thus improving opportunities for accelerating progress.

Providing TA support for all classes; thus allowing more opportunities for small group work

1 to 1 support/ 1 to 1 tuition

Providing small group work with teacher or TA focused on overcoming gaps in learning

Booster/ intervention groups aimed at specific year groups.

All work through the pupil premium will be aimed at accelerating progress, moving all children to at least age related expectations.

Our Pupil premium funding is allocated following a needs analysis which identifies priority classes, groups or individuals.

Outcomes of Pupil Premium Funding for 2011-18

Performance at the end of KS2 in reading, writing and maths was well above national averages (Summer 2015). In 2011 children on FSM attained national averages and all children made expected or better progress. In 2012 children on FSM attained national averages and all children made expected or better progress. In 2013 children on FSM made progress in line with National progress. In 2014 children on FSM made value added progress well above with National progress. In 2015 children on FSM made value added progress above National progress. Our 3 year average 2013-2015 across all subjects is 100.35 which is above National (99.75) by 0.6.

Spending of the 2018-19 Pupil Premium £48,600

Governors have targeted the Pupil Premium allocation to:-

Continue with reduced class sizes in Year 6

Provide TA support in all classes for small group and individual support

Provide booster/ intervention support to groups of pupils.

Provide specialist software and the support to use this to full advantage

To provide professional assessments & recommendations to raise achievement

At the end of the academic year, we will review the impact of the measures listed to ensure they represent both value for money and have played a direct role in improving the achievement of students of all abilities.

Primary Sports Funding

Sports Premium 2018/2019

The government provided additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 to 2014 and 2014 to 2015 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. This money has continued to be provided to schools since 2015 and has now been doubled for the year 2017-2018 and 2018-2019.

Each school will now receive £16000 plus an extra £10 per pupil. Paulton Junior School will receive approximately £18,500 for the academic year 2018-2019.

The school will use the funding to:

  • provide cover staff to release teachers for professional development in PE and sport
  • buy into existing local sports networks such as school sport partnerships
  • pool funding with other local schools to employ a specialist teacher to train existing teachers and teach PE across a cluster of schools
  • to employ qualified teaching assistants to support attendance of sports tournaments, festivals and competitions for pupils of all ages
  • provide places for pupils in after-school sport clubs and holiday courses
  • replenish sports equipment and sports kit.
