Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Strategy and Spending Plan

 

2019-20

 

What is the Pupil Premium?

The pupil premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.

 

Statement and Strategy

Mission Statement

The targeted and strategic use of pupil premium will support us in achieving our mission.

Care, Learn, Achieve

Principles

  • We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of the pupils
  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed
  • In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged
  • We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being in need of intervention and support.
  • Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals. Limited funding and resources means that not all children receiving free school meals will be in receipt of pupil premium interventions at one time

Provision

  • The range of provision the Governors may consider making for this group could include:
    • additional teaching and learning opportunities provided through Intervention groups for specific needs.
    • providing a qualified teacher to cover all classes for staff’s Planning, Preparation & Assessment (PPA) time.
    • providing small group work with an experienced teacher focused on overcoming gaps in learning
    • 1-1 support
    • embedding and stimulating children’s learning with visits or visitors
    • extra-curricular activities
    • Pupil Premium funding is also used to greatly reduce the cost of school trips. As a result, all Pupil Premium children have attended all school trips including more costly residential visits.
  • All our work through the pupil premium will be aimed at accelerating progress moving children to at least age related expectations. Initially this will be in communication, English and maths
  • Pupil premium resources may also be used to target able children on FSM to master the academic expectations of their year group.

What was the impact?

EYFS – The use of Wellcomm and other Speech, Language and Communication diagnostics allow for early identification of children in need of targeted support, to quickly acquire the necessary language skills to develop.

 

All pupil premium pupils enter KS2 ‘phonetically ready’ for this phase.

 

Schools’ assessment data show that 88% of the pupil premium pupils made the expected levels of progress in reading and 88% in writing. Approx 30% of PP pupils made better than expected progress across the subjects

 

Progress measures of Pupil Premium pupils compared to none, show PP pupils making higher rates of progress in literacy, therefore reducing the difference.

 

+3.9% in reading +3.3% in writing.

 

Pupil premium pupils with additional needs had effective support of the educational psychologist and supported referrals for EHCP.
