Parents may access the Schools Performance Tables published by the Secretary of State on the Department for Education’s website. When reviewing our performance data, it is useful to remember that in our small school one child in a year group of fifteen represents 7% in our statistics. If we have a year group of less than fifteen children, this percentage will be even more. As a result, our performance table can appear to fluctuate widely. For example 93% means fourteen out of fifteen children met their targets and 100% means that fifteen out of fifteen children met their targets.  Department for Education’s website. Here are the latest results from national tests March 2017 – Sopley School Performance Data

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 May 2016 PE Sports Funding – February 2017 update.
