Pupil Premium at St Barnabas C of E Primary Academy.
At St Barnabas C of E Primary Academy we are committed to ensuring our pupil premium children reach their full potential and our quality first teaching is complemented with additional support and interventions to encourage, inspire, believe and achieve.
We constantly build on our success in narrowing the gap between groups of pupils and strive for outstanding progress and achievement for all children regardless of barriers to learning. We carefully track every pupil premium child so we can ensure they are receiving or accessing all the additional support they need.
What does OFSTED think of our work?
“The pupil premium grant is managed well to provide appropriate support for disadvantaged pupils. A middle leader with specific responsibility for the coordination of pupil premium support ensures it is targeted where it has best impact. Consequently, the progress of disadvantaged pupils, including the small number identified as most-able, is accelerating. Gaps in achievement between disadvantaged pupils and non-disadvantaged pupils, particularly in reading and writing, are narrowing. Pupils who are looked after by the local authority receive effective support in their learning” (OFSTED, June 2016)
