What is Pupil Premium?

Pupil Premium was introduced by the Government to provide additional funding to address the gap in educational attainment and economic wellbeing between pupils from low-income families or pupils in care compared to their peers. Funding is received for children who have registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years, children who have been in care for more than six months and children whose parents currently serve in the armed forces.

 

Barriers to educational achievement:

Barrier

Outcomes

Success Criteria

A

 

 

Poor speech and language skills.

Proportion of children achieving GLD in the prime areas in the EYFS will increase and pupils in higher year groups will make the expected rate of progress.

B

Lower than national achievement at the end of Reception in the prime areas.

Pupils will achieve national expectation in the prime areas.

C

Safeguarding and emotional barriers to learning.

Emotional support for vulnerable children will result in higher pupil outcomes and a reduction in behavioural incidents.

D

Disadvantage and poverty of expectation.

More pupils will achieve age-related and greater depth expectations in all areas.

E

Limited life experiences as a result of social and economic factors.

Pupils will use experiences to develop their academic and social skills and as a result will achieve more highly.

F

Poor attendance and punctuality.

Attendance and punctuality will improve and pupils will engage fully in all lessons.

 

 

The Governors agreed that the 2017-18 funding was used in the following ways:

Aim

Provision

Approximate cost

Impact

A

To develop speech and language acquisition of pupils.

 

 

Implementation of Elklan speech and language programme and qualified Speech and Language therapist to work with pupils in the Early Years and Foundation Stage and any pupils in Key Stage One and Key Stage Two who have been identified with speech and language difficulties.

 

£10,000

92% of PP pupils in EYFS accessed group intervention coordinated by the therapist resulting in 92% of PP pupils passing the level 2 language comprehension test (TALC), 62% passing level 3 and 31% passing the level 4 test (maximum). Parents had access to advice from the therapist during Stay and Play sessions.

Six PP pupils across Key Stage One and Two accessed individual targeted therapy support, all of whom have met half termly targets and made progress in their language acquisition which has also impacted on their results. 67% of the pupils are operating within their age related speech and language milestones. 100% have made sustained progress in Reading, Writing and Maths.

One pupil no longer requires input.

 

B

To accelerate phonics reading acquisition and comprehension and to promote the development of skills of pupils in the Early Years and Foundation Stage.

 

 

Implementation of Read / Write / Inc. – to include staff training and purchase of resources.

Small group daily targeted interventions.

Implement a consultancy package to provide training, support and challenge in the EYFS.

 

 

 

 

£8,565

 

 

 

£12,000

 

£10,000

Results in the phonic screening test have improved. 87.5% of Year One PP pupils passed the check in 2018 and 100% of pupils in Year Two.

Three members of staff from the Early Years have received Elklan training and this has impacted upon pupil progress in phonological processing.

69% of PP pupils in Reception reached the expected level of development in reading and 8% exceeded.

C

To provide emotional support for vulnerable children to ensure higher pupil outcomes and a reduction in behavioural incidents.

Provide 1:1 counselling service for two days per week to pupils with emotional concerns and offer support to their parents.

 

£22,000

Twelve PP children have received one-to-one counselling support, which has impacted positively on their self-esteem and behaviour as well as academic achievement.

Groups such as Relax Kids have been well-attended. Nine targeted PP pupils participated in these groups. Attitudes to school, self and others greatly improved and impacted on results.

Nine families have accessed support and advice from the Caritas social worker, resulting in early help received and a reduced number of pupils on CP plans.

D

To ensure pupils will achieve age-related and greater depth expectations in all areas.

Provide extra specialist teaching in a number of areas to ensure pupil development is targeted to ensure maximum progress.

£81,321

The number of PP pupils who have achieved greater depth in the core subjects has increased. At Key Stage Two outcomes in the core subjects were:

reading 11% (2017) 19% (2018); writing 7% (2017) 33% (2018); maths 15% (2017) 14% (2018); GPS 19% 2017) 29% (2018).

Pupil progress scores were higher for Pupil Premium children in writing and maths than for non-Pupil Premium children at Key Stage Two.

The difference in attainment between PP and non-pupil is narrowing in non-SAT classes. PP pupils outperformed non-PP pupils in Writing in Year 1 and Maths in Year 2.

E

To develop the social and academic skills of pupils through extra curricular and life experience activities so that pupils learn effectively.

Parents will be supported financially to allow their children to attend a range of trips and visits, including the Year Six residential trip.

Use of mini-bus to facilitate a range of additional learning experiences.

Provide a variety of enrichment activities to support with personal development skills.

£3,000

 

 

Every pupil has had the opportunity to attend trips and experience a variety of learning opportunities which have been supported financially by school. A range of sporting and other extra-curricular clubs has allowed all pupils to participate in a club from Reception to Year Six.

The Year Six PP pupils attended a three-day residential at Winmarleigh Hall which was subsidised by Pupil Premium funding.

F

To improve the attendance and punctuality of pupils.

 

Provide breakfast club for families struggling with morning activities and arriving at school on time.

Staff to oversee attendance initiatives, monitor data and liaise with parents and agency members such as the School Attendance Officer.

Overall school attendance has increased from 94.8 in 2016-17 to 95.2 in 2017-18.

Persistent absence has also decreased. In 2016-17 it was 17.36% and in 2017-18 it was 16.81 %. Thirty-five PP pupils have been monitored and supported by the School Attendance Officer. Of these, 53% have significantly improved attendance within this academic year.

Nine families have attended breakfast club supported by PP funding.
