We have measured the impact of our pupil premium by using the average point scores across the school for Reading, Writing and Maths for those for whom pupil premium applies and those for whom it doesn’t. We have calculated the gap for the last two years by taking the mean APS for each subject from Year 1 to Year 6 and comparing it with the data from the previous year. The gap has closed in reading and maths  and is 0.5 APS for writing.
