Pupil Premium Information
The pupil premium grant is additional funding allocated to publicly funded schools to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and support pupils with parents in the armed forces.
The school will use the grant to support these groups, which comprise pupils with a range of different abilities, to narrow any achievement gaps between them and their peers.
We also recognise that not all pupils eligible for pupil premium funding will have lower attainment than their peers. In such cases, the grant will be used to help improve pupils’ progress and attainment so that they can reach their full potential.
Sport Premium Expenditure
PE and Sports Premium
In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for Physical Education and Sport (PES) to improve the quality and breadth of sports provision in schools. The funding has continued annually since then. Each academic year, schools are allocated a PE and Sports Premium allowance to facilitate this. Please see details of our expenditure for the last academic year in the link below.

Results and Reports
“Pupils at Wheldrake with Thorganby Church of England Primary School are friendly, polite and welcoming. They are proud of their school. They remember the three school rules, ‘respectful, ready and safe’. This helps them to behave well and do their best in lessons.
Leaders and staff have high expectations of every pupil, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). Pupils respond to these high expectations by working hard. They enjoy learning and the interesting discussions they have.
Teachers plan exciting activities that bring the curriculum to life. Behaviour in lessons and at breaktimes is good. Pupils of all ages thoroughly enjoy playing together in the lovely outdoor environment. Bullying is rare. Pupils know the difference between ‘falling out’ and bullying. They trust the adults in school to help them sort things out. Older pupils are proud of their many leadership responsibilities. They care for younger pupils and are excellent ambassadors for the school.
Pupils love the wide range of enrichment activities and events that leaders provide for them. They are carefully planned to make the curriculum more memorable and to give pupils experience of the wider world. Year 6 pupils are full of enthusiasm about their recent residential visit to an outdoor activity centre.”
Test, Exam and Assessment Results
The government will not publish KS2 school level data for the 2021 to 2022 academic year. They have archived data from the 2018 to 2019 academic year because they recognise that the data from that year may no longer reflect current performance
SIAMs School Report
We had our most recent SIAMs inspection on 23rd May 2019.
The inspection focuses partially on collective worship and RE but also on how Christian values ensure that the school is inclusive, promotes good relationships and behaviour and meets the needs of all pupils. Our caring ethos and our super children were praised by the inspector.
Many thanks once again to everyone that plays a part in making Wheldrake with Thorganby CE Primary School such a special place to work: our children, staff, governors, parents, church and community.

Our End of Key Stage 2 results are from the 2018-19 school year. This is due to the changes in the requirements to publish data during the pandemic.
