Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

 

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011, and paid to schools by means of a specific grant based on pupils registered for Free School Meals (FSM), children that are looked after (LAC) and those children whose parents are serving in the Armed Forces. The Pupil Premium is additional to main school funding and it will be used by the school to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible by ensuring that funding reaches the pupils who need it most. The school receives funding at the start of the financial year (April) in order to plan and consider the most effective spending for the start of the academic year in September.

 

Objectives for Pupil Premium spending within school

 

  • The Pupil Premium will be used to provide additional educational support to improve the progress and to raise the standard of achievement for these pupils.
  • The funding will be used to narrow and close the gap between the achievement of these pupils and their peers.
  • As far as its powers allow the school will use the additional funding to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible for Pupil Premium and others.
  • The school will ensure that the additional funding reaches the pupils who need it most and that it makes a significant impact on their education and lives.

 

Accountability

 

The Head teacher and the Senior Management Team will regularly and rigorously monitor, evaluate and review the strategies that have been put in place for Pupil Premium and report to the Governing Body on its progress and impact.

 

Statistics

 

In school there are currently 21 pupils (FSM, LAC, Forces children) and 9 additional 'Ever6' students who are entitled to benefit from the additional funding. In the current financial year from April 2017-2018 the school received £59,260 in additional funds.

Paired Reading:

All children are tested every year via the Salford Reading scheme.  The children selected to take part in the paired reading programme were chosen based on their score.  This programme was delivered over a 3 month period, for 15 minutes, 3 times per week.  It was supported by 3 members of staff.

 

60% of PP children involved in this programme increased their reading age by 6 months or more.

 

Read Write Inc (RWI):

There are three main processes involved in writing; handwriting, encoding (spelling) and language comprehension.  Each process is taught discretely, step by step, so children are helped both in what to write and how to write until the how to write becomes so effortless that all their energy can go into what they write.

 

On average, our PP children who participated in RWI intervention made 3 levels of progress within this programme.
