The Pupil Premium is a Government initiative that targets additional funding to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. 

At Fiveways we are committed to using this money to the best effect, which includes combining it with other resources, or working with others to maximise its impact.  The Government expects that the funding is carefully targeted by the school and its impact monitored to ensure that it is used most effectively.


At Fiveways we are currently using 2016-2017 PPG to support the following initiatives:-

  1. Plan and deliver one-to-one and small-group sessions and tuition across PPG pupils in Fiveways Core Curriculum areas,(which include English, Maths and Science, as appropriate to individual pupils), working with individual and small groups of pupils, supporting and mentoring them to improve and maintain progress.

  2. Enhancement of curriculum resources and to develop the use of ICT to support in class & through 1:1 & small group tuition.

  3. Creative Arts & Physical Curriculum Enrichment

  4. Additional Paediatric Physiotherapist support to offer physiotherapy perspective on MOVE assessments, goals and interventions.

  5. Support pupils' social and emotional development through targeted strategies and activities e.g. THRIVE, Theraplay, ELSA and Drama Therapy. And additional targeted support from other support services.

These priorities are informed by an analysis of the effectiveness of the school from a variety of sources.  One of the most important of these is the progress of individuals and groups of pupils make across the school.  In addition we use information from parents, staff, Person Centred reviews, internal and external audits and questionnaires to help us prioritise how to spend this additional funding.


In 2016/17 Fiveways School will receive £39,520 to spend on Pupil Premium students which is based on allocations of £935 (Yr7-Yr11), £1320 (Yr 1-Yr6), £300 (Service Child) or £1900 (Looked after Child) for each of 33 students.
