The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers. Schools receive £1,320 per eligible pupil in Reception Year to Year 6. Schools are free to spend the pupil premium as they see fit, however they are held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families.

Sport Premium is an amount of money which the government has agreed to allocate to schools to increase the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision, and increase participation in PE and Sport. The funding amount received by schools is based upon the number of children of primary age at the school (Year 1-6).
Assessment without Levels
Assessment of children’s learning in REAch2
From September 2014, with the introduction of the new Primary National Curriculum, the government assessment reforms came into force. These included National Curriculum levels being removed and not replaced. This has allowed schools to design and implement their own assessment frameworks.
Below is REAch2’s response to these changes:
Changes in the 2014 National Curriculum require that children are able to independently access the skills taught in year groups across a wide range of contexts. There is much more emphasis in revisiting and deepening their understanding of what they have learnt, improving their ability to apply learning in as many different ways as possible.
In order for this new assessment criteria to work, it requires a change of mind-set at all levels regarding assessment. Schools have the freedom to make professional judgements on how children learn the knowledge, skills and concepts within the National Curriculum. With this comes a big responsibility to ensure that at all levels it is being taught in a way that develops the whole child.
As children are not expected to push through a set of levels, they are free to master the full breadth of the curriculum for their year group. Really strong, sustainable progress will come through the freedom for children to learn in a range of contexts and ways. The progress will be evident and measurable in books and through the children themselves.
The REAch2 Non-Negotiable Milestones for each year group are not a replacement for levels nor are they a basis for planning or measuring steps in progress. They are a summative expectation of what skills, knowledge and concepts the child should have by the end of the year. It is by no means the range, breadth or depth of what a child should be learning.
This is not to say that challenge and high expectations have slipped. Once a child has independently achieved and met aspects of their year group’s curriculum and this is clearly evidenced, they will be pushed on to their next stage of learning. This will not be scored through a data package but will be the responsibility of the school to ensure that children are meeting their full potential, through clear and thorough checking systems.
