Pupil Premium

PURPOSE OF THE PUPIL PREMIUM POLICY

 

The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to state-funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and other pupils.  The government does not prescribe what the pupil premium should be spent on as schools are best placed to assess what additional provision their pupil need.

 

Who is entitled to Pupil Premium?

 

Those entitled to Free School Meals (or have at some point in the last 6 years);

Children in care and children adopted since 2005;

Children of military personnel (to address social and emotional issues)

£1,320

£1,900 (Children in   care and adopted children)

2016-2017

What we did in 2015/2016

 

Amount of Pupil Premium Allocated- £79,200 for 70 eligible pupils.

This year, we intend using our funding to do the following:

 

  • Boost attainment of KS1 pupils in both end of key stage assessments and Y1 phonics test by targeting pupils for interventions.
  • Narrow attainment and progress gaps for KS2 pupils by identifying pupils for interventions.
  • Provide additional support to year groups with large numbers of PP eligible pupils.
  • Continue to hold booster session for pupils in Year 6.
  • Subsidise extra-curricular activities for all pupils eligible for Pupil Premium funding.
  • Ensure long term provision of a school catering service to ensure all pupils are able to have a daily healthy nutritious meal.
  • Enrich the curriculum by subsidising educational visits, in school activities and musical teaching.
  • Fund a behavioural and learning mentor to support pupils and families with emotional, behavioural and social issues.
  • Fund purchase of resources to support the development of pupils.

 

 

 

Impact from last year’s Pupil Premium

 

  • 10 pupils in 2016 took their end of KS2 tests. (SATs).  In all subjects pupils eligible for    pupil premium funding out performed their peers. 70% achieved the standard in Reading, (12% higher than peers). 80 % achieved the standard in Grammar (10% higher than peers) and 50% achieved the standard in mathematics (2%higher than peers). 

 

 

Main Barriers to Educational achievement

Although the children in our school, who are eligible for Pupil Premium Funding, achieve in line or above others at our school at the end of KS2, we see the main barriers to educational achievement faced by eligible children currently at our school as:

Pre school language skills

Limited life experiences outside of immediate environment

A fixed mind-set / ‘can’t do’ approach

Individual needs e.g. Speech and language, counselling etc.

Maths basic skills retention difficulties

‘Diminishing the difference’ in progress and achievement between children receiving pupil premium funding and non-pupil premium children in KS1

 

We have therefore chosen to spend our Pupil Premium allocation in the generic and specific ways listen below.

 

 

What will we be using our funding for in 2016/2017

 

Amount of Pupil Premium Allocated- £91,069 for 73 eligible pupils.

This year, we intend using our funding to do the following:
