Principles

  • We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of the pupils.
  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed.
  • In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged
  • We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.
  • Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals. Limited funding and resources means that not all children receiving free school meals will be in receipt of pupil premium interventions at one time.

Provision

The range of provision the school may consider include:

  • Providing reduced class sizes to improve the teacher to pupil ratio thus providing increased opportunities for high quality teaching.
  • Providing small group work with an experienced teacher focussed on overcoming gaps in learning.
  • 1:1 support
  • additional teaching and learning opportunities provided through trained TAs or external agencies
  • acquiring effective materials aimed at raising standards, particularly in reading, writing and mathematics.
  • All our work through the pupil premium will be aimed at accelerating progress moving children to at least age related expectations. Initially this will be in Literacy and Numeracy
  • Pupil premium resources may also be used to target able children on FSM to achieve "greater depth" at the end of Y2 or Y6 in the statutory assessments.
  • The school will publish information on how they have used their Pupil Premium Grant to address the issue of ‘narrowing the gap’, for socially disadvantaged pupils.

c) Purchase additional resources.  

d) Provide access to additional activities for children on Free School Meals.

Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) Allocation for 2015/16 was:  £17,083.

The PPG allocation for 2015/2016 was targeted to:

a) Provide 1:1 support and interventions for identified pupils to ensure that they make at least expected progress.     Note: Two children each have 20 hours 1:1 support per week; a GTA runs interventions for 10 hours a week and an HLTA and ATA both run interventions for 2.5 hours per week. The PPG has been significantly supplemented by the school’s revenue budget in order to achieve this.

b) Purchase additional resources e.g. Fresh Start.

c) Provide access to additional activities for children on Free School Meals e.g. trips, residentials and after school care.

d) Purchase training for staff e.g. Fresh Start.

 

The impact of the PPG for the 2015/16 was:

a) Children accessing Free School Meals made on average better than expected steps progress in:

reading (7) and maths (7) and expected steps progress in KS2 writing, but slightly below expected progress in KS1.

Reception children accessing FSM made better than expected progress in all areas.
