Pupil Premium Report and Strategy Statement

In Uplands Junior academy we endeavour to fulfill the Pupil Premium Policy set out by the L.E.A.D Academy Trust by deploying the following Trust strategies to diminish the difference in attainment for pupils in receipt of the Pupil Premium funding.

  • clear, responsive leadership
  • having a whole-school ethos of attainment for all
  • addressing behaviours for learning and conduct behaviours that prevent pupils form learning
  • monitoring and addressing low attendance
  • facilitating high quality teaching for all through continued professional development of staff.
  • meeting individual learning needs including those pupils who are the most-able and seemingly need no support
  • deploying staff effectively, both teaching and support staff
  • using pupil progress data to inform the planning of interventions and provision.

Each Academy reviews the barriers and outcomes for the pupils in receipt of Pupil Premium to understand the strategies that they use to raise attainment. Each Academy explains their rationale for choosing the strategies and provides a cost breakdown. If you wish this statement to be explained, then please ask to speak with the Pupil Premium Leader via the main office.

Evaluation of the strategy:

Pupil Premium pupils are in line with or exceeding the outcomes of their Non-Pupil
Premium counterparts. The largest difference is in reading where 7% of Pupil
Premium pupils performed less favourably. The difference is therefore diminishing in
all subjects in Y3 and there is a positive difference in maths and GVPS.

  • Allocate trained
    support staff to
    deliver BWRP
    strategy across Y3
    to low attaining PP
    pupils.
  • Develop strategies
    across Y3 to
    improve resilience
    in PP pupils to
    support improved
    outcomes.
  • Improve
    attendance figures
    for PP pupils
    across Y3 so they
    are in line with
    their non-PP
    counterparts.
  • Develop strategies
    to improve
    communication for
    all PP pupils to improve outcomes
    in all core subjects.
  • Ensure that
    combined results
    for reading, writing
    and maths are in
    line with non-PP
    counterparts.
