Considerations

Barriers to achieving ARE for pupils eligible for Pupil Premium

  • 41% of children receiving PP are also on the SEND with a variety of issues that increase the difficulty in achieving age related expectations.
  • Continuing difficulties in the home environment contribute to children being disengaged, social and emotional difficulties, varied parent support with homework activities.

 

Action Plan for Spending of Pupil premium across the school

We have a clear action plan in place led by the class teachers to address the gaps in the learning of the children through a comprehensive list of interventions and a programme of reviews through pupil progress dialogues and monitoring by the Inclusion Manager, SEND co-ordinator and assessment coordinator as part of our School Development plan.  We continue to monitor the performance of the Pupil premium children in school by tracking the effectiveness of the intervention programmes and the differentiated planning in classes. This occurs on a termly basis during pupil progress dialogues.

 

Spending of the Pupil premium across the school

Funds are spent on programmes of child appropriate interventions to fill the gaps in their learning.  Social and behaviour strategies are introduced with 1:1 TA support when required to help with emotional difficulties.  We purchase resources for individual children that have a positive impact on specific children.  Financial support on school trips and to a residential trip is included in financial spends.  Spending to date Autumn 2017 – 2018 £12,550, directly on interventions with the children. Pupil premium funding supports the after school club of Forest School and the continued training and staff qualification. Invitation to join the Breakfast club has been extended to all PP children with costing being covered by PP funds

 

Strategy Review for Pupil premium across the school

We review the pupil premium funding and strategy at each Standards and Effectiveness meeting (15th May 2018) with governors and monitor the impact of the funding termly through meetings with teaching staff during pupil progress dialogue.  Here action plans are evaluated and improved to ensure provision is tailored to the child. Coordinator attended a Pupil premium briefing update and we have registered to use the New Pupil Premium Tool to monitor pupil premium funding. We are currently working towards completion of the Nottighamshire Pupil Premium Toolkit.

 

Impact of Pupil Premium funding

TA targeted and differentiated activities to support spelling and comprehension activities are helping to build confidence to achieve expected results. Targeted support in Maths is ensuring FSM have the confidence to have a go.  Behaviour and self-esteem sessions with FSM are helping to build their confidence.

Highlights

 

Historically children accessing the pupil premium funding have exceeded national averages.  In the new curriculum assessment model since 2016 end of KS2 data shows pupil premium children’s end of year expectations are in-line with the cohort data sets and national averages.  

 

Pupil premium across the school

 

There are gaps in a number of cohorts where children accessing pupil premium funding do not achieve age related expectations (see ARE chart) however progress over the last academic year on previous data is good.
