Pupil Premium Strategy

At Skellingthorpe Saint Lawrence Primary School, children’s learning is at the centre of everything we do. We are committed to ensuring all our children make the best possible progress and track the achievement of each one on a regular basis in order to make sure we are doing everything we can to enable each child to achieve their potential.
Learning in each class is supported by teachers and teaching assistants, enabling children to learn in groups of different sizes, at different times of the day, with different adults. Children of all abilities have the opportunity to work on a 1:1 basis or in a small group with an adult. In this way, we can give children extra support when they need it. We rigorously monitor the ideas and initiatives we use to make sure that they really do have a positive impact. The Pupil Premium funding has allowed us to continue and extend what we already do – monitor children’s progress and give additional support when required.

PE & Sport Premium Strategy

The staff and governors of Skellingthorpe Saint Lawrence School appreciate the contribution that PE and sports play in the health and well-being of our pupils. We also believe that this is part of the broad and balanced curriculum which we offer for all children. In order to fulfil our goals, our school is able to ensure pupils have access to two hours each week of quality sports provision as part of lessons and extra-curricular activities.
The government has provided funding known as the Sports Premium to enable all schools to ensure their sporting provision and opportunities are of the highest quality. Each school receives a block allocation along with an amount per pupil in school. This money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
Following the successful use of some of this funding for specialist sports professional development, this led to an improvement in confidence and the quality of PE teaching and learning for all members of staff (including support staff).

Performance data

The National Curriculum tests at the end of Key Stage 2 (often referred to as SATs) are administered in Mathematics, English Reading and English Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling.

Children completed a number of different tests and from the raw score achieved in the test, a scaled score of between 80 and 120 is given. Pupils achieving a scaled score of 100 or more are said to be ‘Secondary ready’ or working at the Age Related Expectation (ARE). The average scaled score for this group of children for 2017 was 106 in Reading and in Maths. For Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling this was 108.

Schools have been provided with the National Data – i.e. the percentage of children achieving Age Related Expectations across the whole country and this is provided below.

Category Saint Lawrence School National Data
National Standard in Reading, Maths and Writing 78% 61%
National Standard in Grammar/Punctuation/Spelling 89% 77%
National Standard in Reading 78% 71%
National Standard in Maths 78% 75%
National Standard in Writing (Teacher Assessed) 78% 76%
