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.

Additional teaching time to allow smaller targeted groups to be withdrawn.

 

 

Following the successful pilot of this with our Year 6 children last year, we intend to employ a teacher for September to withdraw Year 6 children for targeted teaching alongside the class teacher.  This will allow those children that are close to year 6 standard to target the skills they are weak at more effectively.

Additional teaching time to allow smaller targeted groups to be withdrawn.

 

 

 

Based on outcomes at the end of the previous academic year, we introduced continuous provision in September 2018.  This allows teachers to focus Maths lessons on developing mastery in key skills while more practical skills (such as time, money etc) are taught through practical small group activities outside the maths lesson.

Continue to develop mental arithmetic.

Based on data analysis of end of year data,  the SLT and Maths subject leader decided to continue to focus on these areas by continuing with regular arithmetic tests and by further training to help teachers ‘keep arithmetic skills alive’ by planning effective starters that include these skills. Continuous provision was also introduced to allow teachers to spend more time in maths lessons on arithmetic skills while more practical elements (such as time) could be taught through small group activities outside the maths lesson.

Continue to develop the whole class guided reading approach where all pupils are taught higher level skills.

Following our excellent reading outcomes at the end of least academic year, the English subject leader and SLT decided to continue with the whole school guided reading approach.  This has been further developed as now topic work and writing have been linked to the sessions providing a greater opportunity for children to develop higher order reading skills and then apply these in different contexts.

D.  Children will be provided with additional learning opportunities within school.

Subsidised costs of school trips for PP children.

We wanted to ensure that PP children had the same opportunities to attend school trips as other children in order to help motivate their enthusiasm for learning.  We chose to provide some funding for school trips to ensure that this occurred.

Additional T4W training for teachers and TAs. (Completed)

 

Additional teaching time to allow smaller targeted groups to be withdrawn.

 

 

The consistence of T4W teaching across the school improved and staff were more able to deliver the programme.

 

Smaller withdrawn groups (Year 6) made better than expected progress.

 

 

 

Targeted groups worked well and this is an approach that we will replicated from September 2019.

 

T4W has now been adapted to fit with the school’s successful guided reading approach.

C.  Pupils eligible for PP will make comparable progress in Maths to non-PP children.

Development of Maths Mastery programme.

 

Additional teaching time to allow smaller targeted groups to be withdrawn.

 

 

 

Data at the end of KS2 increased in Maths for all pupils with all year groups making progress from starting points.

The introduction of continuous provision has meant that teachers are now able to target children’s needs even more closely and pull out elements of maths that might be better taught through a different more practical approach.

C.  Pupils eligible for PP will make comparable progress in Maths to non-PP children.

Increased focus on mental arithmetic.

Focus on times table facts increased and parents became more involved in pupils developing these skills.  Introduction of TT Rockstars has been a success.  Arithmetic scores across the school increasing.

The programme continues.  TT Rockstars will still continue with teachers accessing more of the targeted resources available.  The school will also be taking part in pilots for the year 4 times table test.
