Statement of Impact of 2017/18 Expenditure


Pupil Premium funding provides;


  • for a dedicated HLTA to support their learning
  • visits to the Dogs Trust at Ilfracombe and Eastleigh residential homes in addition to other events to enhance life experience
  • a mentor to support emotional and social well-being
  • TA support for intervention work including thrive training
  • reading support with the Dogs Trust
  • after school cooking club attendance for identified children
  • additional opportunities for sports and music lessons/events



In summary, the attainment gap between pupil premium children and non-pupil premium children has narrowed and is closing further. The percentage of children working at age related expectations across the school has now risen significantly year on year.

Children are identified on entry to school and the appropriate extra provision is made for these pupils.





In terms of qualitative progression, it is particularly pleasing to all the staff to see how confidence, resilience and team working skills have developed over the last year, for the Pupil Premium children.
