Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

The pupil premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.

 

Funding for 2018 to 2019

In the 2018 to 2019 financial year, schools will receive the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years:

  • £1,320 for primary-aged pupils

Schools also receive £2,300 for each pupil who:

  • has been looked after for 1 day or more
  • has been adopted from care
  • has left care under a special guardianship order, a residence order or a child arrangement order

and £300 for any child recorded as Ever 6 Service Child or in receipt of a child pension from the Ministry of Defence

This year our Pupil Premium allocation is £14,820. Out of 210 pupils on role, 9 are eligible for Pupil Premium.

How is Pupil Premium used in our school?

In 2018-19 our Pupil Premium will be used exclusively to support the narrowing of attainment and progress gaps for identified children.

 

 

Resources and Rationale

The Pupil Premium budget has been partially allocated to pay for a Reading / Comprehension resource called Fast Forward. The resource is based on the strategies used in Reading Recovery but has been extended to support the recipients’ skills in phonics, writing and comprehension. The school made the decision to buy this resource due to the success of our other Reading Recovery based interventions. These interventions had been very successful in supporting children in independent decoding and increasing fluency; however, this success was not always demonstrated in reading assessments, where a large part of the emphasis was on comprehension. The Fast Forward resource is intended to help by adding this dimension to intervention sessions in a way that is finely tuned to the child’s reading level. Staff who will be delivering this intervention have received training and will have a follow-up session later in the year. Children’s progress will be monitored half termly to judge effectiveness and staff who deliver the lessons will have responsibility for this progress built into their Performance Management to emphasise accountability. The Education Endowment Foundation’s Learning Toolkit judged the application of Reading Comprehension interventions to give moderate success for low cost (click for details).

 

 

Staff Allocation and Rationale

The remainder of the pupil premium allocation will be used to partially fund Teaching Assistant hours which are used to deliver teacher managed interventions including:

 

  • Better Reading Partnerships
  • Fast Forward
  • Springboard Maths
  • Basic Skills interventions which are tailored to groups and individuals
  • Individual support
  • IDL (Dyslexia support)

 

All interventions are time limited and reviewed at least termly to judge effectiveness. The Education Endowment’s Learning Toolkit judged one-to-one tuition and small group tuition as having moderate success for moderate cost. These interventions are delivered by TAs, which the Learning Toolkit judged overall to be a low impact expense, however, this referred to the general use of TAs as classroom assistants. When TAs were deployed for small group and one-to-one intervention, especially where training was involved, this was judged to be effective and to have a positive impact on pupils’ attitudes (click here for details).

 

All children eligible for Pupil Premium receive intervention of one sort or another, which is determined by their particular ‘gaps’ in attainment or progress.

 

 

Has Pupil Premium allocation been effective?

In the last academic year the majority of children eligible for Pupil Premium made at least expected progress, and in some cases more. Where a child made less than expected progress there were exceptional circumstances which are currently making provision for.

We are aware that data for such a small cohort of children can provide misleading results – especially as, in 2018, they were largely drawn from KS2 classes. Therefore, every child in receipt of pupil premium is individually tracked to record attainment, averages of progress, distance from expected levels and provision. This tracking shows at least expected progress for the majority of Pupil Premium children.

The progress of Pupil Premium and FSM children has been affected by the fact that 3 of the 9 children have special educational needs and are in receipt of additional support. Also, 2 of 3 FSM (and therefore 2 of the 9 Pupil Premium) children are gifted and talented and are working on securing their mastery of the year group expectations before being judged within the next year group’s expectations

How is Pupil Premium used in our school?

In 2014-15 our Pupil Premium will be used exclusively to support the narrowing of attainment and progress gaps for identified children. The Pupil Premium budget funds Teaching Assistant hours which are then spent on teacher planned and managed interventions including:

  • Better Reading Partnerships
  • Springboard Maths
  • Basic Skills interventions which are tailored to groups and individuals
  • Individual support

All interventions are time limited and reviewed at least termly to judge effectiveness.

In the academic year 2013-14 these interventions were also in place, but due to the nature of individual needs, groups were in place to support the emotional and social wellbeing of some of the eligible children.

All children eligible for Pupil Premium receive intervention of one sort or another, which is determined by their particular ‘gaps’ in attainment or progress.
