Parents may access the latest Schools Performance Tables published by the Secretary of State on the  Department for Education’s websiteIn our small school one child represents 6-7%, sometimes more where the year group is especially small,  so there can be wide fluctuations e.g. 14 out of 15 children = 93%, 13 out of 15 children = 86% . Here is a summary of the results from the 2017 national tests Sopley – pupil outcomes 2017

At Sopley School we define children with SEN (special educational needs) as those who require teaching in addition to and different from their peers in order to be able to access the curriculum and make progress.

General information about the achievement of different groups of children, including those with SEN, and those who qualify for pupil premium funding is shown in our annual equalities update which is included within the Equalities Policy (including equality objectives and plan, equality reporting and accessibility plan) on our Federation Policies webpage.

Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children – pupils who are entitled to free school meals and the children of armed service personnel. All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received, how this is being used and once information is available, the impact of the funding.

Primary School sports funding is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport. Schools have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they have the freedom to choose how they do this. Click here to see our Review of PE Sports Premium spending 2016-17 – Sept 17 Click here to see our plan for expenditure for our School PE Sports Premium update and planning 2017-18 – Sept 17
