A small sheet of paper completed four times a year has transformed one primary school’s approach to Pupil Premium support and intervention. Jessica Hawley explains

At Markeaton Primary School, we have been consistently monitoring not only the academic progress of our Pupil Premium children but also their behaviour, participation and the enhanced opportunities that they receive in the hopes of achieving wide, long-lasting benefits.

Markeaton Primary, built 1910, is a well-established and popular school serving a diverse socio-economic area of north west Derby. There are 441 children on roll in 14 classes with 25 per cent identified as Pupil Premium – a figure which continues to rise each year. We are an Enhanced Resource School specialising in the teaching of children with a visual impairment.
