School DataTo view our Comparative Performance Data from the last three years, click below.
DfE Results Dashboard - The School Data Dashboard provides a snapshot of school performance at Key Stages 1, 2 and 4. The dashboard can be used by school governors and by members of the public to check the performance of the school in which they are interested.
The School Data Dashboard complements the Ofsted school inspection report by providing an analysis of school performance over a three-year period. Data can be filtered by key stage or by topic:

Pupil PremiumIn the current financial year 2016-17, Pupil Premium funding amounts to £66,420. In 2015-16, this amount was £76,775. In 2014-15, the funding amount was £73,200. The DfE has given us the freedom to use the Pupil Premium as we see fit, based upon our knowledge of our pupil needs.
'It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.'
However, we are accountable for the use of this additional funding.
The Pupil Premium is additional funding which is allocated to schools on the basis of the number of pupils who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point over the last six years (known as 'Ever 6 FSM'). The Pupil Premium is aimed at addressing the current underlying inequalities which exist between children from disadvantaged backgrounds and their more affluent peers.
The Pupil Premium also provides funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months and the children of service personnel.
The Pupil Premium was initially introduced in April 2011 when schools received an additional £488 for each of their pupils eligible for free school meals. In April 2012 this was increased to £623. In April 2014, the figure increased to £1300 per eligible pupil. Children of service personnel receive a lower amount. Currently, the figure for eligible pupils is £1320 each.

Sports PremiumThe Government continues to fund schools to provide quality primary PE and school sport. St Paul's received £8880 during the financial year 2015/16.
Provision in School
As a school we already provide high quality PE in school and our intention is that this funding will further enhance the existing provision in school.
The funding must be used so that:
- All children benefit regardless of sporting ability
- Children have the opportunity to compete in competitive sports at some level
- Staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development.
Our funding in 2015/16 was used in the following way:
- To provide exernal coaches to deliver high quality PE to children in Gymnastics, Dance, Outdoor games and Athletics.
- To increase competitive opportunities within and between schools with transport and entry costs.
-Development of Change4Life Club
- Strengthening links with Walkden High School
- Purchase of new Athletics equipment
Updates relating to our provision for PE and sport will be provided throughout the school year through our school newsletters and website. The impact of funding will be reported annually to governors within the Headteacher's report.
Pupils also engaged in lunchtime clubs and before school 'Change for Life' clubs.

SEN StatementThe Governors and staff shall make every effort to ensure that where a child is found to require Special Educational Support, they shall enlist the support of parents and any appropriate professional support agency to achieve that child's full potential.
All reasonable resources shall be provided through the school budget and from appropriate support agencies, and effectively managed so as to provide for each child's full entitlement to a broad curriculum, including the National Curriculum, taking due regard of the school's Equal Opportunities Policy and the school's unique Christian character. It shall reflect that 'every child has a fundamental right to education and must be given the opportunity to achieve and maintain an acceptable level of learning'.
