Pupil Premium

 

What is Pupil Premium?

Pupil Premium is additional funding provided to schools to support children from low-income families, who are currently eligible for Free School Meals.  It also provided additional support for children who have been in local authority care for more than six months.  From 2012-2013 this funding included any child who had been eligible for free school meals at any time in the last 6 years. (Known as the Ever 6 FSM measure)

School must use the Pupil Premium to improve learning outcomes for these children as well as providing equal access to all aspects of school life. From September 2012 we were required to publish online information about how we have used the premium.  This will ensure that parents and other have information regarding the impact on these children’s learning.

Barriers to future attainment ( for pupils eligible for PP) NB these barriers might not be present in every instance

In school barriers ( issues to be addressed in school )

Attainment on entry at school can be lower which requires the pupils to make accelerated progress in order to achieve at least the expected level.

External support is not always as effective as it could be which does impact on the learning and progress of the children.

Attendance at school has been a concern- continue to achieve the current level of attendance -no PP is PA.

£10,144

The money was spent on employing an Higher Learning Teaching Assistant for ELSA, an Home School Link Worker to work with families, extra TAs for phonic lessons and covering the cost of clubs and school trips for PP families it also covered the cost of the PP Infant free school meal entitlement as the PP children do not receive this on top of the PP money.

The impact of the expenditure on eligible and other pupils

The eligible pupils and other pupils have received input from the HSLW, the TAs and the HSLW and also had quality first teaching from the teachers as the extra staff have given the teaching staff more one to one or small group input.

The impact of a teacher, an HLTA and a TA during daily phonics in the EYFS and KS1 has meant that as a school the phonic screening check pass rate continues to be higher than Surrey and the National Average – 88% 2016

Across KS1 the children have a full time teacher and full time HLTA, the two classes also share a floating TA full time The impact of this has enabled all children to achieve their potential this academic year.

Reading 97% achieved, Writing 97% achieved, Maths 97% achieved

KS1 PP Pupils

Reading 100% achieved, Writing 100% achieved, Maths 100% achieve
