Pupil Premium 2016-2017

What will we use our pupil premium funding for?

What impact is this designed to have?

Academic

Additional teacher in Year 6

 

An additional teacher appointed in Year 6 to provide additional support to ensure the children make accelerated progress in smaller groups

 

Smaller groups contributed to the improvement in the number of children reaching and exceeding the expected standard in in writing and SPAG as well as GDS in all subjects in 2017 compared to 2016.

Writing – PP children @ EXS 62% to 76%

SPAG – PP children @EXS 54% to 68%

In 2016 we had no PP children achieving GDS but in 2017 we achieved:

Reading -4%, Maths - 12%, Writing – 4%, Combined - 4%, SPAG – 7%

 

Triage and Pre-teach

 

Enable full access to the curriculum and improve attainment and progress to enable children to access the curriculum in the classroom, increase confidence and accelerate progress.

 

Pre-planned intervention groups (either prior to/ after sessions) have allowed children to secure their understanding in particular areas, or have given the children confidence to ‘have a go’ in a session when, ordinarily they would have struggled and felt unable to achieve.

 

SALT & SALT TA

 

 

Improve the oral language skills of our EYFS children so that reading progress isn’t slowed in subsequent years

 

EYFS children are able to speak more clearly which will have a positive effect on their reading and writing work as they move into Year 1. 87% of PP children left FS2 with an expected level in Speaking and 73% of PP children left with an expected level in listening and understanding

 

Associate Professionals Support in each classroom

Raise self-confidence & increase support/ participation/ motivation of pupils as well as reduce the ratios in EYFS so that children can make expected/ accelerated progress.

 

Associate professional support in each classroom has meant that pre-planned intervention groups can take place regularly as well as adhoc according to need. Misconceptions, as well as areas for challenge, are identified and acted on immediately. Regular feedback, both oral and written, has increased the confidence of the PP children so that they are participating more in class.

 

Emotional

Breakfast Club

 

Provide a healthy breakfast so that the children are able to start each day ‘ready to learn’ as well as improving the attendance and punctuality of our PP children.

 

This has improved punctuality; the children are more settled in school and ready to start their learning on a full stomach.

Attendance data shows that there has been an increase in the attendance of PP children in 2016/17 compared to 2015/16. In addition, the number of persistent PP absentees, has decreased from 2015/16 to 2016/2017.

 

Child & Family Support Worker

 

Build and maintain relationships with pupils/ families. Provide/ locate support through meetings/ mentoring and liaise with the relevant services.

 

Child and Family support worker has worked hard, both with the children and families who are in receipt of PP in developing and maintaining relationships. Where necessary relevant services have been contacted and paperwork submitted. Child and family support worker has also attended appointments with PP families to offer support and advice. Pupils barriers to learning, as well as families’ barriers linked to school, have been broken down by having an approachable designated person.

 

Counselling

Ability to respond to any additional needs of PP children from external school barriers that may occur throughout the academic year

 

No children have accessed counselling this academic year.

 

Enrichment

Music tuition

Subsidised music tuition will be provided so that children in receipt of Pupil Premium will be given the opportunity to learn to play an instrument and develop their talents and interest in music.

 

This has worked well and been enjoyed by children eligible for the funding. It has allowed a wider range of experiences and provided discussion opportunities. PP children have performed in numerous events including our annual musical evening and our services at the local church

 

After school clubs

 

Funding will be used to help children access a range of extra-curricular activities including cookery, gymnastics, drama, musical theatre singing.

 

This has allowed children to access the same opportunities as their peers regardless of their financial position.

 

Residential / School visits

 

Support the PSHCE development of pupils and support their academic studies as well ensuring that their social skills, perseverance, independence and teamwork are developed through participation in activities to broaden what might be limited life experiences.

 

Pupils across the school have accessed visits that support engaging and cross curricular topics. The profile of writing has risen. For example, wide range of high quality genres presented in assemblies, on displays and in books. Children talk highly of educational visits expressing the wish for these to continue.

 

Enrichment activities

Provide additional curriculum enhancement by bringing in subject specialists into the school.

 

This has worked well and has been enjoyed by those children in receipt of PP funding. It has not only enhanced the curriculum, but has allowed children a wide range of experiences and access to the same opportunities as their peers, regardless of their financial position.
