Following the school closure on 23rd March and the subsequent reduction in spending on interventions, trips and training, a carry forward of £11,732 was agreed.

 

In the academic year 2019-2020 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 Interventions:  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 e.g. Protective Behaviours.
  • 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 and after school for pupils where attendance has been assessed as having an impact on educational outcomes.
  • Subsidised educational Visits including residential trips.
  • Subsidised uniform as needed for pupils eligible under the deprivation indicator. All pupil premium eligible pupils, reception to year 5, have been offered a uniform bundle to ensure pupils have the essentials for September 2020.
  • Individual transport costs in accordance with an externally monitored plan to support attendance.
  • The school took part in the Reconnect: Attachment Awareness programme. Two members of staff, who previously attended local authority training, this year worked with a leading SENDCo and trained staff from a partner school to deliver Attachment Awareness staff training.
  • 1, 2, 3 Magic Training for Parents/ Carers

 

Pupil Premium Strategy 2020-21:

Pupils eligible for the pupil premium grant may face difficulties with:

  • Attendance and punctuality
  • Access to after-school activities
  • Extending their understanding of the world through varied cultural experiences e.g.  trips to different environments
  • Delays in developing early learning and play skills
  • Attachment and emotional development

Little Stanion Primary recognises this academic year presents unique challenges arising from COVID-19, a crisis which has disproportionally affected the already disadvantaged and created financial difficulty in families where this was previously not an issue as well as triggering existing and emergent social, emotional and mental health issues.

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

  • swiftly identify and target any gaps which have emerged during school closure using class-based support and individual intervention as required.
  • challenge and support for our high potential pupil premium pupils to achieve greater depth across the curriculum
  • build on our provision to promote mental health and well-being across the school; recognising the COVID-19 specific traumas arising from the loss of routines, disruptions to social connections, and anxiety caused by the uncertainty of the lockdown. For children who may have already experienced trauma this may amplify the impact of COVID-19 and trigger additional emotional difficulties. In order to support pupils at an individual level we will be supporting PP pupils through Play Therapy, this will be provided in school by a PTUK registered practitioner.
  • continue 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 in the context of the challenges of COVID-19.

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. This academic year due to school closure arising from COVID-19 and the subsequent cancellation of KS1 and KS2 SATs as well as reporting of EYFS GLD we are unable use this measure to determine the effectiveness of provision. Internal data submitted in advance of the school closure has been used to give as effective a measure as possible in the circumstances.

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 Spring term provision map was evaluated at the point of school closure to assess the effectiveness of provision for pupil premium eligible pupils up to that point.

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?

  • **Due to the closure of schools on 23rd March, the data for 2019-2020 is taken from the Spring data drop and is indicative of pupils who are on-track to achieve ARE. We recognise there will be a need to re-assess and identify emergent gaps following the opening of school to all pupils.
  • The Spring data for pupils on-track for achieving age related expectations in reading, writing and maths suggests that the gap between pupils eligible for pupil premium and those not eligible for pupil premium remains closed this academic year and in writing and maths the attainment of pupils eligible for pupil premium was on-track to exceed that of pupils not eligible for pupil premium.
