Temple Normanton Primary School Pupil Premium Policy

Our Aims

We aim to ensure that every child leaves Temple Normanton Primary excited about learning and with a determination to want to succeed.  We aim to equip all children with confidence, resilience and a sense of justice and fairness.  These qualities, we hope, will enable them to continue to succeed as they move onto Secondary Education. The targeted use of Pupil Premium funding will support us in achieving our aims.



We ensure that Teaching and Learning meets the needs of all pupils.

We ensure that through rigorous assessment of children’s needs, appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups. This specifically includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are addressed.

We recognise that not all pupils who are eligible for free school meals, (or have been eligible in the last 6 years) are socially disadvantaged.

We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals.

We therefore allocate Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or group of pupils that the school has identified as being socially disadvantaged.

Pupil Premium funding will be allocated following annual needs analyses which will identify priority classes or groups.



We have a range of provision in place to support children who belong to vulnerable groups.   

Providing small group work with an experienced TA or Teacher focussed on overcoming gaps in learning.

Additional Teaching and Learning opportunities provided by teachers, TA or external agencies

Additional support for assessments, training and advice from specialists including Speech & Language, Educational Psychologists and Autism Outreach.

Positive Play and Nurture Groups.

Paying for activities that broaden the curriculum and enhance learning opportunities.


All our work funded by the Pupil Premium will be aimed at accelerating progress so that the vast majority of children leave Temple Normanton Primary at, or above, the National Average or they leave having made 2 levels of progress from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 2.



The Headteacher will produce annual reports for the Governing Body on:

Outline of the provision

Progress made towards narrowing the gap, by year group, for socially disadvantaged pupils

Cost effectiveness, in terms of the progress APS etc. made by the pupils receiving provision.


The outline of provision and progress made by pupils (not named) will be published on the schools website.


The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011, and paid to local authorities by means of a specific grant based on January school census figures for pupils registered as eligible for FSM in reception to Year 11. For looked after children the Pupil Premium was calculated using the Children looked after data returns (SSDA903).

Additional TAs in EYFS/KS1 to deliver ‘Every Child a Talker’, speech and language programmes and ‘1st Class @ Number’

What is being implemented 2015-2016?


There is a Pupil Premium TA working in every class, establishing working relationships with all children, helping to ensure they are on track to meet their end-of-year targets in Literacy and Numeracy.


Pupil Premium children are being supported in the majority of Literacy and Numeracy lessons.  Higher level Teaching Assistant working across school delivering interventions to help Pupil Premium children make better than expected progress.


Time set aside for staff to identify areas of difficulty, analyse data and plan support for Pupil Premium children.  There will be a big push throughout school to improve attendance and punctuality, with particular reference to Pupil Premium children.




This is measured through ‘End of Key Stage’ data at Yr6 and throughout school termly, to track progress towards end of year targets.  All children who are designated as Pupil Premium children are tracked through their learning and progress is monitored (as are all children in school).


The majority of money is spent on providing TAs/Teachers to support individuals and small groups learning in class. The focus is on reading, writing and maths. Evaluation of groupings and intervention strategies are conducted and changes made as necessary.  Impact is measured through ‘End of Key Stage’ data at Yr6, and throughout the school termly.
