How does Greatworth School measure the impact of the Pupil Premium?


Our pupils undergo a baseline assessment when they commence with our school in reception (or other class stage). This is then measured against the EYFS criteria and the attainment is then monitored with particular emphasis on our pupil premium pupils.

All pupils in KS1-2 are assessed at the end of each term and their performance monitored within our school assessment system. This tracks all pupils from Reception to year 6.

So far the pupils have achieved pass rate in Reading, Maths and Writing. this is a direct result of the booster sessions funded by the pupil premium.

The booster time also accessed some drawing and talking training which from feedback from the pupils evidenced more desire and focus in class, this could not have been achieved without the grant for pupil premium.
