Pupil Premium Strategy
The Pupil Premium (PP) is designed to ensure that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. The funding is allocated to Local Authorities and schools with pupils from Reception to Y11 who are eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last six years, are looked after or adopted.
The total amount allocated to the school for the financial year 2019 to 2020 is £21,420
The school have identified that the key barriers to future attainment for our pupils are:
- Poor prior attainment in reading, writing and or maths.
- Listening and speaking, reading, spelling, punctuation and grammar skills limiting reading and writing ability across the curriculum.
- Confidence in basic mathematical concepts/number skills limiting mathematical progress
- Special Educational Needs (specific to individual pupils).
- Social and emotional issues impeding the readiness for learning needed to support independent learning and learning resilience.
- Limited life experiences upon which to draw in learning situations
- Family circumstances (including past experiences)
How we will spend the funding to overcome the barriers.
- Additional K.S.2 teacher for 4 mornings a week to facilitate more focused differentiated work. (£6,500)
- Additional T.A. hours to support in classes and to provide 1:1 and small group support. (Cost £7,000)
- Resources to support learning (games/study guides) – (£250).
- 1:1 / small group maths tuition. (Cost £1,000)
- School based Nurture Groups with a focus on conversational skills, transition work for Year 6 pupils and trips for broadening life experiences. (Cost £800)
- Home /school link worker to support vulnerable pupils and provide link between home and school. (Cost £300)
- SENCo to support teachers with individualised programmes for PP pupils (£1600)
- Payments to be made to aid inclusion in school events and to encourage participation in school based clubs. (Costs £1,000 (Residential))
- Payments for extra- curricular tuition e.g music tuition (£1,213)
- Fruit and Uniform. (Cost £250)
- Supply cover to release staff for meetings (£600)
- Working with Federated School on joint PP strategies
How we will measure the impact of the funding.
- We use both internal and external data to measure the impact of the Pupil Premium Grant on our pupils’ learning. We will review the effectiveness of the interventions we are using and adapt them to meet need when and where required.
- We will closely monitor PP children to ensure good progress, at least in line nationally and with each full cohort in school in GLD, Phonics, Reading, Writing and Maths.
The next review will be July 2020
