How does our school spend pupil premium?

In the academic year 2018-2019 the pupil premium has been used to fund a wide variety of academic interventions, extra curriculum activities and pastoral support programmes building on our programme of targeted individual support to help pupils overcome barriers to learning:

·         Before and after school interventions to support pupils eligible for pupil premium to meet their individual targets.

·         1:1 tuition from a qualified teacher for identified pupils.

·         Additional 1:1 and small group phonics tuition to enable pupils to access the whole school vertically differentiated RWI phonics and spelling programme.

·         Early Years Intervention:  early identification of pupils in early years, providing additional support from teaching assistants, delivering a specific programme based on need.

·         1:1 and small group tuition: intensive tuition in small groups or 1:1, supporting learners with gaps in learning, those who are falling behind, or to teaching challenging concepts

·         1 x Family Support Worker delivering a range of individual programmes including social and emotional support.

Pupil Premium Strategy 2019-20:

            In addition to the interventions, extra curriculum activities, pastoral support programmes and targeted             individual support in place, over the coming academic year our priorities for the pupil premium grant:

·         to further reduce the attainment gap in maths by building on this year’s 25% to 8% reduction through the introduction of IXL. IXL is a web based learning programme which identifies and targets individual gaps. Following a successful trial in the summer term this will initially be used for maths, The IXL programme will be used alongside class based support and individual intervention as required.

·         to consolidate the achievements made in closing the gap in reading and writing across the school by continuing to closely monitor the attainment and progress of pupils eligible for the pupil premium, ensuring emerging gaps are swiftly identified and additional support put in place as needed

·         to enhance the support offered for pupils with attachment and trauma difficulties. This year the school is taking part in Reconnect: Attachment Awareness programme. Two members of staff have attended local authority delivered training and will now work with a leading SENDCo and trained staff from a partner school to deliver Attachment Awareness staff training both in Little Stanion Primary and across identified local schools.

·         to build on the critical link between home and school by continuing to work closely with parents / carers to identify and support the individual needs of pupils eligible for the pupil premium. The introduction of the IXL programme will enable parents / carers are able to see what areas children are working on and identify next steps.

·         to advance the skills of teaching staff to support pupils eligible for the pupil premium to achieve through an on-going programme of internal and external CPD, staff training and support.

How do we evaluate the effectiveness of pupil premium?

The progress of pupils eligible for pupil premium is assessed through the termly collection of academic data.

The effectiveness of the allocation of funds is rigorously reviewed through the school’s provision map. The provision map allows us to record and evaluate the effectiveness of interventions accessed by individuals and groups of pupils.

The allocation of the LAC premium is individually monitored and reviewed termly by the relevant local authority in partnership with the school and parents / carers.

What is the impact of pupil premium on progress?

·         The gap between pupils eligible for pupil premium and those not eligible for pupil premium achieving age related expectations in reading, writing and maths combined reduced this academic year from 15% to 1%.

·         In writing the attainment of pupils eligible for pupil premium exceeded that of pupils not eligible for pupil premium by 2%.

·         The gap between pupils eligible for pupil premium and those not eligible for pupil premium achieving age related expectations in maths is 8% and this remains a focus area for 2019-2020.
