Pupil Premium Statement.

In 2011/12, the Government launched the Pupil Premium Funding initiative. This money is allocated to schools based on the number of pupils who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM - allocated to pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years, known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’) Looked After Children (LAC) and Armed Forces Services Children (FC) The government believes that the pupil premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. Schools have the freedom to spend the Pupil Premium in a way they believe will best support the raising of attainment and help overcome barriers to learning for the most vulnerable pupils. The pupil premium is now a significant part of many schools’ budgets, it is now an expected that Headteacher/ SENCO show the impact that the additional funding is having on eligible pupils.

Our strategy for supporting disadvantaged pupils is to use the best and most experienced teachers to support our most vulnerable learners. For this reason, where possible, additional support is provided by teachers. Each child in receipt of the pupil premium grant has an individual plan to ensure that support is targeted and meets their individual needs.

The main barriers for pupils in receipt of PPG are specific to the child. For some children, barriers may be linked to previous trauma, neglect or attachment issues. This can have significant impact on self-esteem and confidence and so nurture times and interventions are aimed at raising the child's self-image and confidence. This has a direct impact on learning. Our use of an experienced teacher to lead interventions means that barriers are identified on an individual basis and addressed through high quality one to one or small group sessions. Some pupil premium children also have Special Educational Needs.

Barriers to future attainment (for pupils eligible for PP, including high ability)

 In-school barriers (issues to be addressed in school, such as poor oral language skills)

A.    

Language, communication and interaction skills in EYFS for pupil premium children are below the expected age related standard on entry to Nursery which impacts on reading and writing in subsequent years.

B.    

Social and emotional intelligence skills combined with low self esteem and resilience for some pupil premium children impacts upon learning within KS2.

C.

Social and emotional needs impact on behaviour and learning

External barriers (issues which also require action outside school, such as low attendance rates)

D.

 

 

Lack of routine (sleep, food, homework) can mean poor concentration and behaviour.

 

 

E.

Attendance rates for some pupils eligible for pupil premium are low.

F.

Lack of life experiences (e.g. accessing family holidays, visiting museums, nature reserves etc.)

2.   Desired outcomes

 

Desired outcomes and how they will be measured

Success criteria

A.    

To close the gap in interaction and communication throughout EYFS and KS1 leading into KS2 from September 2016 .Children will make expected or better attainment in English skills throughout the time with us – measurable termly.

Identify children with language, communication and interaction issues on entry to Nursery.

Impact early intervention in EYFS through phase 1 phonics interventions and ECAT support.

Continue specialist support (ECAT & SALT) in KS1

Where necessary continue support into KS2 through EKLAN support.

For KS1&2 Children set/attempt challenging targets

Upper KS2 Children speak ambitiously about heir future at Secondary school and work.

B.    

Children are able to talk about their feelings in a controlled way and acknowledge problems can be solved.

Growth mind-set more evident within their learning.

Resilience and self-esteem to be measured through the Leuven scales as a baseline in Nursery and then after intervention.  Behaviour tracked through PIVAT’s.

Increased resilience when tackling new learning.

 

C.    

Pupil premium children will close the gap on their peers in the core subjects – tracked through termly data.

Early / timely intervention will be sourced by class teachers/ SENCO

Referrals for extra support will be sourced where necessary.

Achievement for All – parental engagement trough structured conversations – school/parent partnership.

 

D.    

The attendance of PP children improves. (checked half termly)

Increased attendance of PP children through using breakfast club. (monitored and discussed with parents) Provide access to homework support

Reduce the number of persistent absentees among pupils eligible for PP

So that attendance for the children is in line with national average.

E.     

Pupil premium families offered financial support to access educational visits and extra-curricular opportunities.

Educational visits for PP children to be paid for through PP funding.

Uniforms provided at no cost to the parents through PP funding.

Children have more opportunities to be included in social events.

 

 

F.     

Pupils with Social and Emotional needs often need one to one support to engage with learning and be part of their class. Attendance will improve as will access to the curriculum. Behaviour incidents decrease, progress data improves.

Less incidents of poor behaviour.

Progress data shows improvements over time.

Evidence impact of early intervention in EYFS through phase 1 phonics interventions and ECAT support. Continue specialist support in KS1and

Pupil progress meetings half termly will inform how the children are achieving.

 

When children join us from other settings or on entry in nursery – baseline assessments often show that there is a gap for Pupil Premium children in their communication and interaction skills.

 Early intervention research shows that children need to close the gap on their peers at an early stage in their educational career in order for them to stand a chance of catching up to their peers later on, therefore we are targeting early intervention.

 

 

Pupil progress dates are set for the year to regularly look at data and plan out intervention for PP children, we will monitor and track their progress  through planning and assessment data. 

HLTA’s/ATA’s and GTA’s are employed to carry out interventions, this is mainly targeted as early intervention.

Termly  throughout

2016/17

Children are able to talk about their feelings in a controlled way and acknowledge problems can be solved.

Increased growth mind-set more evident without their learning.

Increased resilience and self-esteem.

 

 

 

 

 

Circle times and

restorative practice strategies are used as part of behaviour policy.

Class ethos is agreed by all parties ensuring all children feel safe to talk about their feelings

Resilience tracking through the Leuven’s scale.

Use of circle time and restorative practice creates an ethos of shared responsibility for our actions/ behaviours and promotes self-regulation and justifying our actions. It creates an emotionally safe ethos in the classroom and the children will always feel happy to share their thoughts/fears/worries.

Gather a pupil voice.

 

‘Drop ins’ to lessons will show the school ethos & behaviour policy.

 

Training will be offered to staff who are unsure about good quality restorative practice/ growth Mind-set.

Children who have daily reading – progress will be seen at pupil progress meetings.

Children will look to read more at ‘free time’.

£15,776

Data as analysed by SLT

Raised outcomes for children both academically & socially. Half termly progress data.

Looking at internal assessment we can see that for some children in the majority of subjects, particularly in maths and reading the gap is narrowing but at a slower rate in writing. GL assessment showed 80% of PP children in this class made better than expected progress in English and Maths.

1:1 & small group TA support for  PP children.

Half termly progress

In KS1 and EYFS there is no longer a gap between pupil premium children and their peers nationally. In some cases PP children exceeded national expectations.

For classes where additional TA support has been provided GL data shows 80% of PP children making progress in line with their peers nationally in maths, with progress being much higher.
