Pupil Premium Strategy Statement

What is pupil premium?

Schools receive a payment, or pupil premium, for each child who is registered for free school meals (FSM) or has been within the last six years and those who have been in continuous care for six months or more. Schools also receive a smaller payment for pupils whose parents are serving in the armed forces and those who are eligible in the early years.

What are our aims?

  1. For disadvantaged pupils to make at least expected progress in reading, writing and maths.
  2. For disadvantaged pupils to be able to access the full curriculum and extended curriculum offer.

 

What do we do to achieve them?

  1. The progress and attainment of each pupil is analysed. Intervention is provided to meet their individual needs. Most often this is additional sessions with a teaching assistant for reading, handwriting, spelling and maths. Some pupils are supported in a small group in the classroom by a teaching assistant. Disadvantaged children in year 3 and 4 who require it, have additional opportunities to practise their multiplication tables using times table rockstars.
  2. Where necessary some pupils are provided with equipment that enables them to access the full curriculum e.g PE kit. Disadvantaged pupils are also given the opportunity to participate in clubs and activities.

 

How do we monitor the impact?

Each pupil’s progress is monitored on a termly basis and intervention groups are adjusted accordingly.

Subject monitoring activities always include disadvantaged pupils as part of the group.

Twice yearly the link governors for progress and achievement meet with the Headteacher, at these meetings the provision for disadvantaged pupils is discussed and out comes are reviewed. They report back to the full governing body.

Pupil progress and attainment is discussed by the full governing body in September each year.

The school improvement advisor visits three times per year and disadvantaged pupils always feature in her monitoring activities.

 

How is the funding used?

The funding for disadvantaged pupils contributes towards the salary costs of the teaching assistants. This accounts for the majority of the funding.

A small amount of funding is used to ensure that pupils can access the full curriculum and extended curriculum offer e.g. PE kit, clubs and activities.
