 Pupil Premium across the school

When comparing pupil premium attainment with non-pupil premium attainment there was a varied picture. In Year 1 attainment was slightly below in reading and maths but in line in writing; in Year 3 attainment is below in reading, writing and maths; in Year 4 attainment was below in reading and maths but in line in writing; in Year 5 attainment was in line in all subjects.

Please note that performance gaps between disadvantaged and other pupils in previous years are not directly comparable with 2016 gaps.

Context

 When taking into account the progress and attainment of groups of children consideration should be paid towards the composition of the groups.

Whereas currently, for the academic year 2016-2017, on role at Brandlehow 8.1% of children are on the SEN register; within the PP group this is 19.1%.  35.6% of children have English as an additional language, within the PP group this is 44.7%.

Whilst this should not be seen as a barrier, it provides a useful context.  .
