Pupil Premium Report to Parents - September 2016

What is the Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011. It is a grant paid to schools based on school census figures for pupils registered as eligible for free school meals in reception to Year 6. For looked after children the Pupil Premium was calculated using the Children Looked After data returns (SSDA903).

The Pupil Premium is additional to main school funding and it will be used by this school to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible by ensuring that funding reaches the pupils who need it most.

How we use the funding - Objectives

  • The Pupil Premium is used to provide additional educational support to improve the progress and to raise the standard of achievement for these pupils
  • The funding will be used to narrow and close the gap between the achievement of these pupils and their peers
  • As far as its powers allow the school will use the additional funding to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible for Pupils Premium and others
  • We will ensure that the additional funding reaches the pupils who need it most and that it makes a significant impact on their education and lives.

School Policy

The Headteacher and governing body have agreed the above objectives and will monitor the use of funds and to ensure that it represents value for money.

Accountability

The headteacher and leadership team will regularly and rigorously monitor, evaluate and review the strategies we have put into place for Pupil Premium and report to the governing body on its progress and impact

Statistics 2016-17

  • This year we had 14 pupils who were entitled to benefit from the additional funding.
  • The school receives £1300 per annum per pupil
  • The school received £18,300 additional funds

Action Plan for 2016-17

The school has looked carefully at the needs of each pupil and we have decided to use the following intervention strategies:

  • Providing small group work or 1:1 support for pupils entitled to PP funding with an experienced teacher focussed on overcoming gaps in learning to help them make improved progress and to raise their standards of achievement
  • Providing counselling or psychotherapy support where there are issues which are affecting readiness to learn, including mentoring
  • Additional teaching and learning opportunities for pupils entitled to PP funding by providing all enrichment activities and school trips at no cost

All our work through the pupil premium will be aimed at accelerating progress moving pupils entitled to PP funding to at least age related expectations. Initially this will be in Literacy and Numeracy

A summary of evidence from the evaluation of the impact of the funding

In this year of the additional Pupil Premium funding the evidence gathered through the school’s self-evaluation strategy has shown that the intervention strategies have been very successful and that they have had a very positive impact on the progress, standards and achievement of those pupils entitled to the additional funds.

In this year of the additional Pupil Premium funding the evidence gathered through the school’s self-evaluation strategy has shown that the intervention strategies have been very successful and that they have had a very positive impact on the progress, standards and achievement of those pupils entitled to the additional funds.
