How does our school spend pupil premium?

In the academic year 2017-2018 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:

·         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.

·         1 x SEN assistant delivering evidence based small group interventions to identified groups e.g. Success@ Arithmetic, Numicon and Rapid Writing.

·         1 x learning mentor delivering individual and small group coaching, feedback and Mindset programmes to remove identified barriers to learning.

·         1 x learning mentor running a weekly Nurture Group for a small group of identified pupils.

·         Funded places at breakfast club for pupils where attendance has been assessed as having an impact on educational outcomes.

·         Subsidised educational Visits including residential trips.

·         Individual support delivered by external providers e.g. play therapy.


Pupil Premium Strategy 2018-19:

In the academic year 2018-19 we are planning to further enhance the effectiveness of the pupil premium through the introduction of individual meetings with parents / carers at the start of the year to identify individual barriers to progress, discuss most purposeful use of pupil premium and set intended outcomes for the year.

Priorities for pupil premium in 2018-19 include ensuring able and more able pupils are performing to their potential, developing the individual mentoring and coaching programme for pupils whose attitude to learning has been identified as causing a significant impact on progress, introducing 1:1 Accelerated Reader interventions and embedding Numicon in EYFS and KS1 to link conceptual and concrete understanding of number.

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.
