Pupil Performance Summary 2016-17  

Foundation Stage [reference EYFS 2016 Contextual Report - LBWF]

Significantly more of our pupils achieve a good level of development than the Waltham Forest and National Average. School 85% compared with 72% National Average. For Literacy and mathematics learning goals we achieve significantly better than Waltham Forest and National averages and this is also often the case for other leaning goals.

Year 1: Phonics scores are again well above national averages. 93% of Yardley pupils passed the test compared to 81% nationally.

Key Stage 1 and 2 assessments changed in 2016. Levels where replaced by an Expected Standard (EXS) and Greater Depth (GDS) that is achieving significantly more. The tests and assessments where increased in difficulty and hence the standard required to pass them was higher than previous years. This was to reflect the raising of standards sought through the introduction of the 2014 National Curriculum.

Pupil Premium Funding

Pupil premium funding is allocated to schools according to the number of pupils that are disadvantaged – those pupils eligible for free school meals or are in care. In national assessment data ‘Disadvantaged Pupils’ achieve considerably less than the ‘Other Pupils’ group [non-disadvantaged pupils].

The aim of the funding is to ‘close the gap’ in attainment between disadvantaged pupils and other pupils [non-disadvantaged].

 September 2016– August 2017

Funding Allocation: £141,808

Allocated Spend:

£10000 on 1-to-1 and small group tuition provided outside the school day.

£133,521 for direct teaching support for individual pupils, small groups and classes. There is also a focus on continued professional development for teaching and learning by three of the teachers involved in this work.


Outcomes 2016-17:

At Key Stage 1 our disadvantaged pupils performed in line with other disadvantaged pupils nationally and non-disadvantaged pupils in our school.  

At Key Stage 2 our disadvantaged pupils made less progress when compared to other groups and this is being addressed this year through regular monitoring by the Deputy Headteacher, a review of how additional out of school support is provided and deployment of non-classed based teachers to support across key stage 2.
