Ofsted - Raising Standards, Improving Lives
Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. They are responsible for:
- maintained schools and academies, some independent schools, and many other educational institutions and programmes outside of higher education
- childcare, adoption and fostering agencies and initial teacher training
- a range of early years and children’s social care services, making sure they’re suitable for children and potentially vulnerable young people
- publishing reports of our findings so they can be used to improve the overall quality of education and training.
- informing policymakers about the effectiveness of these services
Ofsted’s role is to make sure that organisations providing education, training and care services in England do so to a high standard for children and students.
Ofsted Inspection Reports
2020 KS2 Results
In March 2020, the Secretary of State for Education announced that the 2019/20 national curriculum assessments would not take place due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
The following assessments were cancelled:
- end of key stage 1 and key stage 2 assessments (including tests and teacher assessment)
- phonics screening check
- multiplication tables check
- science sampling tests
- all statutory trialling
The department recognises this creates a gap in KS1 and KS2 attainment data for year 2 and year 6 pupils in 2020 and future progress measures that rely on that data will also be missing.

What is Pupil Premium?
The pupil premium is additional government funding given to schools to help them tackle problems faced by socially disadvantaged children and to close the attainment gap between those children and their peers. Schools are free to use the pupil premium as they see fit but are accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support low income families.
How is Pupil Premium allocated?
The main basis of allocation is an amount paid in respect of each child known to have been eligible for free school meals at any time during the last six years. The principle behind this is that as a group, children eligible for free school meals have consistently lower educational attainment than those who have never been eligible for free school meals. In addition, amounts are paid for looked after children who have been in care for more than six months and for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.
Our principles for allocating Pupil Premium
We have adopted the following principles for ensuring that the use of pupil premium is appropriate to the needs of our School:
• We recognise that teaching and learning must meet the needs of all pupils.
• We recognise that there has been a history of lower attainment for socially disadvantaged children. However, not all socially disadvantaged children are in receipt of free school meals or are low attainers. Moreover, low attainment occurs in other social groups and some free school meals children are high attainers. A carefully balanced approach is therefore required.
• Our allocation of pupil premium to teaching and learning resources will therefore predominantly target low attainment generally, irrespective of social background.
• Use of pupil premium is subject to continuous close monitoring to ensure that its use is effective.
Success Criteria and Monitoring
To ensure the effective use of Pupil Premium we monitor progress made in literacy, numeracy and writing by free school meals children compared with progress made by all children. This information is included in a termly report submitted to the Governing Body and scrutinised in detail by a Governor working party.

WHAT IS PE AND SPORT PREMIUM FUNDING?
PE and Sport Premium is an initiative that aims to help increase and improve the PE and sporting opportunities for children in primary school.
PE and Sport Premium funding is provided jointly by the Department for Education, the Department for Health and Culture and the Department for Media and Sport. It has been allocated to primary school headteachers and is ring-fenced, meaning that it can only be spent on the provision of PE and sport in schools.
The Government believes that headteachers and school leaders should decide how to use the funding for PE and Sports in school. They are held accountable for the decisions they make through:
- The performance outcomes of all pupils compared with their peers
- The Ofsted inspection framework, under which inspectors focus on the attainment of pupil groups, in particular in those areas where specific funding has been provided
- The reports that schools are required to publish online for Parents
At West Lynn Primary School we aim to use the funding effectively to ensure that the standards of learning and achievement in PE and Sports are raised, with all children, engaging in physical activity as part of the curriculum and extra-curricular provision.

COVID Catch-Up Funding 2020-2021
The Government are providing £650 million of universal catch-up premium funding, schools are being allocated on a per pupil basis with a total of £80 for each pupil in Reception to Year 11.
Our school currently have 52 children on roll and we receive £4,160 to support the catch-up for lost teaching over the period when schools were asked to close for the majority of children.
Walpole Cross Keys Primary School have used research from the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) to produce an action plan of how the money will be spent.
