Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium

Principles

  • We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of our 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.
  • We will do everything possible to support any of our pupils who would benefit from additional help.

Objectives in spending PPG

  • Providing small group work with an experienced teacher focused on overcoming gaps in learning.
  • Pupil premium resources may also be used to target able children on FSM to achieve higher levels than those expected for their age.
  • Additional teaching and learning opportunities provided through learning mentors, trained TAs or external agencies.
  • Targeted 1:1 tuition, focusing on literacy and numeracy, as a “catch-up” programme for pupils working below age-related expectations in order to improve access to the whole curriculum.
  • To ensure all children have access to a wide range of new and challenging enrichment opportunities.
  • Funding places on school trips – to ensure all pupils are able to participate in school trips which are part of the curriculum.
  • To raise awareness within staff of the students that do need additional support with a view to narrowing the gap by tracking and reporting progress.

Measuring the impact

  • Measure the impact of the interventions by tracking the progress of the beneficiaries on a half termly basis.
  • Measure the success of students at the end of Key Stage 2 relative to their target grades and against threshold measures.
  • Monitor and support students accessing pastoral support and discuss their progress and needs regularly.
  • Monitor students receiving financial aid for musical tuition on a half-termly basis.
  • Evaluate and review to ensure that targeted support is appropriate and effective – challenging behaviour will reduce in intensity and quantity where students have individualised programmes in place which address their needs.
