Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium 2018-19

Each child who is eligible for free school meals, or has been within 6 years, brings additional funding to the school. This is called Pupil Premium.

Pupil Premium Allocation Amount: £15,000

The main barriers to educational achievement faced by eligible pupils:

  1.        Social, emotional and mental health
  2.        Speech and Language
  3.        Poor basic skills in reading, writing and number
  4.        Attendance

 Planned pupil premium spending to overcome these barriers:

  1.        Social, emotional and mental health:
  •          Promote confidence and social skills through participation in school clubs, visits and visitors
  •          Continue to develop personalised workstations and safe places to support successful inclusion
  •          Ensure continuity of restorative approaches to behaviour through staff training
  •          Continue to develop outdoor and indoor areas that support the development of social and communication skills
  1.        Speech and Language:
  •          Annual S&L training with support staff
  1.        Poor basic skills in reading, writing and number:
  •          Provide Every Child Reads and Every Child Counts interventions for eligible children
  •          Provide Better Readers interventions
  •          Provide laptops and Clicker software to support the development of writing skills
  •          Whole staff training and development of mastery approaches to teaching and learning
  1.        Poor Attendance:
  •        Breakfast club offer
  •        Morning meet and greet

 Measuring the effect of the pupil premium:

  •          The impact of this provision is measured by monitoring and evaluating: attendance, behaviour & achievement data; well-being and involvement ‘Leuven scale’ data; club attendance; pupil and parent voice; lesson observations and staff appraisal.
  •          Monitoring shows that pupils made good progress in relation to their starting points. At the end of Key Stage 1:

o   46% of children made accelerated progress from their Early Years Profile starting points

o   62% of children achieved age expected and better in reading

o   69% achieved age expected and better in mathematics

o   30% achieved greater depth in reading and in mathematics

o   54% achieved age expected and better in writing

The next review of the strategy: July 2019

They benefitted from school visits to a local farm, Safety Centre and National Trust parkland and garden.  They experienced a visit from Christopher Columbus, hatching chicks & butterflies, and Zoo Lab

  •          Assessment and monitoring of well-being and involvement using Leuven Scales showed that children enjoyed school and were involved in learning
