Pupil Premium and PE Grant

What is the Pupil Premium?

The Government considers the Pupil Premium to be a key element of their education policy. Introduced in April 2011, the Pupil Premium provides additional funding to schools to target specific groups of children who are vulnerable to underachievement. These include pupils from low income families; children in care and the children of armed service personnel.

 

Staverton C of E School is committed to ensuring that all students achieve their full potential by providing high quality classroom teaching and robust quality assurance processes.

The Senior Leadership team, SENCO and middle leaders aim to ensure that any barriers to learning are quickly identified and additional intervention is carefully designed to meet individual needs.

All students are encouraged to participate in a wide range of extra-curricular activities on offer in order to further develop self-confidence and raise their self-esteem.

The government’s ‘pupil premium’ is additional funding to enable schools to provide intervention, where necessary, for those students who take free school meals (FSM) or have taken free school meals at any time in the last 6 years (FSM6). A smaller amount of funding is also available to support students from services families.

A. Pupils eligible for PP will make comparable progress in writing to non-PP children.

Additional T4W training for teachers and TAs.

We wanted to invest some PP in longer term change which will help all pupils. The school has been running T4W for some time. It was felt that teaching staff needed ‘refreshing’ on the basic concepts of the approach in order to provide the best learning experience for all pupils. TAs have also been trained as there is now an increased expectation for how they support children during T4W sessions.

Introduction of Maths Mastery curriculum.

Based on the end of KS2 data from academic year 2015-2016, we decided that the Maths curriculum needed to be reviewed. We sought advice from other schools and chose the White Rose curriculum. The Maths subject leader received support to introduce the new curriculum and has provided training during staff meetings.

Year 4 children have regular visits to Trowbridge library.

We chose to use some of the PP funding to provide a coach in order for the Y4 children to make fortnightly visits to the main library. We wanted to increase the profile of reading within this year group as the attainment of PP pupils is low (50% on track).

Data analysis to see if interventions are having a measurable impact.

Pupil voice interviews to ascertain the impact of visits on pupil attitudes to reading.

Reading Recovery Programme

Pupils were assessed to gauge suitability for either or both programmes. Regular monitoring and assessment used to gauge impact.

In both cases there were short term gains, however, several pupils didn’t maintain the progress they made whilst on these programmes. It was decided that an alternative approach was required.

Estimated impact: Did you meet the success criteria? Include impact on pupils not eligible for PP, if appropriate.

Lessons learned

Cost

Meet individual needs

Provide specific support/resources as identified by class teacher/SEND

The range of support (providing books to take home, music lessons, support with residential) have all been effective at the point of delivery and contributed to the overall picture.

This approach is difficult to measure on a case by case basis, however, it contributes to an overall package of support and therefore is effective. This will continue.
