25% of the funding will be spent on teaching. This is because research strongly indicates that the most effective interventions are those undertaken by qualified teachers using effective, formative feedback to pupils. However, the school cannot afford to spend all its allocation on teachers and judges that it would not be cost effective to do so because, for much consolidation and retention work, individual pupils can receive far more 1:1 or small group provision from a teaching assistant, working under the direction of – and monitored by – a teaching assistant.

THE IMPACT OF THE PUPIL PREMIUM 

 

  • Following analysis of the performance of Pupil Premium children in 2014-15 the school was one of only two schools in Suffolk to be awarded £1,000.
  • In 2016-2017 disadvantaged readers at St. Pancras performed better than other pupils in the Year 6 tests.
  • In 2016-2017 63% of disadvantaged pupils at St. Pancras achieved the expected levels in all of the reading, writing and mathematics tests and assessments. This is 2% ahead of the national figure for all pupils, including disadvantaged pupils.
