The impact of this work was evident as follows:

* The majority of disadvantaged pupils make expected progress in line with their peers.

* The majority of disadvantaged pupils attain age related expectations in line with their peers.

*Attainment of the disadvantaged pupils is well above the national figure in the Year 1 phonics screening test.

*The proportion of disadvantaged pupils that attained Level 4 in reading was equal to the national figure for ‘other pupils’.

* Behaviour has improved leading to better learning across the school.

* We use this money to subsidise educational visits, including residential trips, for example by funding transport or board and lodgings. For some children this has a huge impact on their self-esteem and confidence. All matters regarding the use of Pupil Premium funds are treated with discretion and in confidence.
