2017-18 Statement

There are 192 pupils currently attending Culloden Primary Academy who attract the pupil premium.

This represents 33% of the YR – Y6 population (591 pupils in YR – Y6 in total). Over the past six years this has been much higher. CPA faces profound challenges in terms of the needs of its eligible pupil premium pupils and their parents/carers which the pupil premium is spent to address. The Academy serves a highly deprived area, with average incomes of families being exceptionally low. The School is in the top 20% of schools nationally in terms of:

  • deprivation
  • the proportion of pupils whose first language is not English

For the academic year 2017–18, Culloden Primary expects to receive £349,495 in pupil premium. The academy plans to spend this or has already spent this as follows:

  • £65,000 on staffing to provide full time places to all pupils in nursery for the entire academic year
  • £27,000 on resources and training in synthetic phonics in FS / KS1 and LKS2
  • £15,000 on Reading Recovery for pupils in Y1 who do not learn to read the first time they are taught

  • £19,495 to fund Saturday morning lessons in the spring and summer term for Y6 pupils
  • £6,000 to provide a holiday programme during the summer break
