Pupil Premium...

is funding allocated to schools by the government. The children who are eligible for this grant are those who are in receipt of free school meals (FSM) or who have been eligible in the last six years of their education (from September 2012). It also includes any children who have parents in the Armed forces or students who are identified as being in foster care (looked after children). Each school has the freedom to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per pupil, is spent, as they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils at their school.

1. Barriers to future attainment (for pupils eligible for PP, including high ability)

In-school barriers

Attainment on entry

Extremely poor oral language skills when pupils first enter school. We also have a large number of early help interventions including SALT, LEAPS and Educational Psychologist.

Outcomes

To continue to improve attainment and progress in reading, writing and maths across the school for pupils eligible for PP, including more able disadvantaged pupils (particularly in reading and Greater Depth)

Success criteria

Children who are eligible for PP perform in line with national figures for these pupils – particularly by the time they leave school in KS2. (Reading – 64%/ Greater Depth – 10%/WRM combined – 51%)

SEND

Currently the percentage of pupils across the school (Reception to Year 6) with identified SEND is 26%compared against last year’s national average of 12%. 48% of SEND children are also Pupil Premium. Since September 2017, we have referred 10 children to the Educational Psychologist, in addition to another 5 children who currently have involvement and 19 waiting to be seen this year. (This number is fluid, and rises as we have new admits and/or children need intensifies thought the plan/do/review cycle).

Outcomes

To develop the use of our Nurture ethos to support vulnerable children emotionally, socially and academically.

Success criteria

A higher proportion of pupils eligible for PP are settled and thrive in class with a range of support in place.

Social care needs

Our school has a large number of families supported historically or currently by outside agencies, including social care and family support workers. Many of our families need support from school to help them address their needs and to support their children’s learning. Many of our children do not receive frequent parental support with reading, homework and school activities. A large group of pupils often present with other vulnerabilities and require additional emotional support. We have 5 members of staff in school who are fully trained to be designated leads in the area of safeguarding and child protection and have Cpoms to ensure good communication, record keeping and the follow-up of actions.

Outcomes

Increase attendance rates for pupils eligible for PP across the school ensuring that the number of pupils eligible for PP who are Persistent Absence (PA) decreases.

Success criteria

Overall absence rates for pupils eligible for PP reduces to 7% in line with national figures for these pupils. Persistent absentee rates for these pupils reduces to 10%
