How we will be using our Pupil Premium funding for 2018-2019

 

  • To purchase additional learning resources such as WellComm Language Programme that we know have proved have been used effectively to accelerate progress and raise attainment for lower ability and EAL pupils
  • Continue to fund a part-time Teaching Assistant to deliver specific speech and language programmes
  • Target specific level three language and learning support to some of our EAL and/or SEN pupils, who also qualify for Pupil Premium so that their significant needs are met appropriately and achievement improved.
  • Our data shows that for the disadvantaged pupils who do have low starting points when they enter school in Reception, high quality teaching and learning and timely interventions, have ensured good progress is made. We will therefore continue to use funding to support this in order to ensure early reading, writing and mathematical skills are secured for all groups of children in receipt of the Premium so that attainment gaps are narrowed as early as possible
  • CPD - Quality First Teaching & raising the attainment of boys
  • Early Intervention- targeted support in EYFS and Year 1 to support PSED, and children in the early stages of literacy, numeracy and oracy (including phonics)
  • Small group intervention sessions, with qualified teacher
  • Behaviour support re attitudes to learning and social and emotional learning
  • Nurture Group (5 mornings per week)
  • Half termly Pupil Progress Meetings to discuss progress pupils are making and impact of interventions
  • Working with local teaching school on transitional maths programme (year 5-8)
  • Fund off-site school visits for all disadvantaged pupils and mutually agreed out of school activities that will support and promote their engagement in learning.
  • Ensure that extra-curricular activities are available and are accessed by Pupil Premium children, including Before and After School club where appropriate

Impact of Pupil Premium Spend 2016-17

 

  • Children in receipt of Pupil Premium, including more able pupils, were targeted for additional support to ensure at least good progress

  • Almost every child receiving Pupil Premium with SEN made good progress against their IEP targets.

  • EYFS data showed the impact of Speech and Language support (WellComm data and CLL data)

  • All pupil premium pupils and children in receipt of free school meals in year one passed the Phonics Screening test

  • 66% of our pupils achieved reading, writing and maths combined at the end of Key Stage 2 assessments (national for all pupils 61%)

  • Data for pupils in Years 1 -5 shows that progress for disadvantaged pupils, from their different starting points was at least good for the vast majority.

Our data analysis shows that our strategic decisions as to how we spent our Pupil Premium funding had a positive effect on the achievement of this group of pupils, and a rise in the progress for the vast majority of these children was secured. Using additional qualified teachers and skilled support staff ensured we focused on improving the quality of our provision/ interventions and thus achievement for our disadvantaged pupils.

  • EYFS data showed the impact of Speech and Language support (WellComm data)
  • All pupils benefited from educational visits and pupils in years four, five and six experienced a week long residential trip
  • Two children receiving Pupil Premium gained higher than expected standard in reading and four children attained it in writing at end of Key Stage Two Assessments
  • Progress for disadvantaged pupils in Reception and year one was at least good
  • Gaps have continued to narrow in attainment at the end of key stage two, with the percentage of school Pupil Premium pupils being above national average at expected standard in all areas expect reading (just below)

 

The percentage of Pupil Premium pupils who made more than expected progress during the academic year shows the very positive impact of the monies spent, across the whole school:

 

Reading      38%

Writing        62%

Maths         74%

All children in receipt of funding were targeted for additional educational provision to ensure at least expected and increasingly good progress was achieved by all these children. Our data analysis shows that our strategic decisions on how we spent the Pupil Premium had a positive impact on the achievement of this group of children and that across all classes a rise in progress and attainment for the vast majority of our Premium pupils was secured.

Using additional qualified teachers and skilled support staff to work with targeted children across the school ensured we focused on improving the quality of our provision/interventions and thus achievement for our disadvantaged children.

Our continued focus on ensuring reading skills are being taught well enabled almost all children to make at least expected/good progress in their reading. The great majority of children in receipt of funding at the end of each key stage are achieving age related reading levels and above.

Disadvantaged children are increasingly participating in extra-curricular and out of school hours learning opportunities.
