There are no gaps for disadvantaged or PP pupils in school. 

In EYFS – our PP pupils usually make above average progress.

In KS 1 – our PP pupils were significantly above the national average and outperformed the average pupil and most passed the Phonics test in Yr 1.

In KS 2 – our PP pupils were significantly above the national average and outperformed the average pupil with a higher percentage of our PP pupils making the expected progress when compared to an average pupil nationally. We were in line / above in our PP pupils making better than expected progress when compared to pupils nationally.

This would suggest that the work we do with our Pupil Premium pupils is outstanding.
