The William Amory recognised for its teaching by Parliament….
Pupil Premium is an additional funding given to schools based on their level of Free School Dinners (not the same as the free dinner all KSI children get).
The school uses this money to provide support for its pupils and is proud of how effective this has been. We have been recognised for our effectiveness with the following letter the Minister of State for Schools – David Laws MP.

The William Amory Primary School
Congratulations on your disadvantaged pupil results.
Dear Mr Wilken,
It gives me great pleasure to write to you and congratulate your school on the improvement in Key Stage 2 results of your disadvantaged pupils since 2011.
Your results show that you have improved in terms of the progress and attainment achieved by your disadvantaged pupils since 2011, and that you are highly effective in educating your disadvantaged pupils. It is clear that you and your staff have provided disadvantaged pupils with a good start in life and prepared them well for secondary school
[The next paragraphs points out that we missed the Award and the resulting £1000 prize for 2014!]
I would like to congratulate your staff, governors, parents and pupils for their hard work and success, and thank you for your leadership in making such a difference to the future success of your pupils. Finally, I would also encourage you to share your achievements with other schools so that they can learn from your strengths and experiences.
I would like to add my appreciation to all the staff who have worked so hard to ensure that all the children in our school, whether they bring the Pupil Premium or not, are given a good start in life.
