Pupil Premium Strategy

Purpose

Pupil Premium was introduced to narrow the disadvantage gap and raise attainment between pupils from low income families and their wealthier peers.

Scope

Pupil Premium funding is allocated to children from low-income families who are eligible for free school meals (FSM) and children who have been looked after (LAC) continuously for more than six months.

Date of next review: September 2019

Pupil Premium 2019 - 2020

Pupil Premium 2018-2019

The Pupil Premium funding is additional funding given to schools so that we can support pupils who might be at risk of under achieving. The funding is allocated to schools based on those pupils who are eligible for free school meals.

The funding for 2018-2019 is £62520

This allocation will be spent on: 

  • This year we are employing a Speech and Language therapist to work (part-time) across the 2 sites to develop intervention groups and to train teachers and support staff to support and maintain these groups.
  • A percentage towards the salary of the two Family Workers in continuing to provide a range of parental involvement events examples include, coffee morning, specialised training sessions; Makaton signing, Supporting Literacy & Maths at home, Attention skills, Behaviour management, Massage, Pecs, general Autism awareness and "Meet the Teacher "
  • The family workers also support Families on appointments if requested.
  • The funding supports training given by our ICT team on the Use of ICT, Ipads & Internet safety.
  • Each class has a high adult:pupil ratio which enables specific children to access specific activities to support their progress in areas where they might be under achieving.
  • We subsidize all our trips and only charge a very nominal amount.
  • We subsidize the purchase of outdoor play wear so that pupils can enjoy our outdoor curriculum & environment
  • We subsidize an annual Year 6 Residential trip.
  • Where parents are not able to make voluntary contributions for cookery, swimming or trips, this will be met from the pupil premium.

Impact

Increased support in the area of communication will support their ability to communicate and thereby should reduce frustrations and anxiety
Pupils make excellent progress when their learning is supported at home. The parental training events give parents confidenc
e in supporting their child and a good understanding of the strategies that are used in school .
The ethos of the school in making learning fun and using the environment for learning is enabled and enhanced by the use of the additional funding and therefore a wide variety of trips & visits can be offered.
Evidence shows that our FSM make progress in line with other pupils in the school.
