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 2020/2021 is £24,175
The key barriers to future attainment for our children are:
- Quality of strategic leadership to ensure the achievement of pupil premium within their learning and social and emotional development
- Some pupils are not working at an age related level and have conceptual gaps or misconceptions
- Some pupils have limited speech and language skills which can impact upon learning to read and write
- In some cases social and emotional issues affect learning behaviours that support independent learning and resilience
- Reading, spelling, punctuation and grammar skills limit the writing ability of some pupils
- Parental engagement/partnership with the school in supporting children’s learning needs
- In some case, a lack of regular routines in the home including home reading, homework, spellings and having the correct clothing and equipment in school
- In some cases, access to resources such as books, libraries and life experiences (social/cultural capital)
How we will spend the funding to overcome the barriers.
Summer School offered for 2 weeks in August – £1,000
Additional teacher 5 mornings a week working across Years 3 – 6 in the core subjects – £8,000
Additional support staff for small group targeted work – £10,000
To improve teacher and support staff’s knowledge of Mental Health and Well-Being of pupils – £1,500
Strategies to support the mental health and well- being of pupils-
Nurture Groups/ Support – £1,000
Home School Link Worker – £600
Overtime paid to support staff to attend training – £500
Purchasing of additional resources and equipment – £450
Increase the social capital for pupils e.g covering cost of trips/attendance at after school and local clubs – £800
Held in reserve to allow for additional tuition and/or resources – £1, 275
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 2021
