Pupil Premium

Introduction

Pupil Premium is dedicated funding provided to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils, and close the gap between them and their peers.

Pupil Premium Allocation is currently calculated on the number of pupils who have been in receipt of Free School Meals in the last 6 years (Ever 6 children), Looked After Children and the children of Service personnel on the date of Census.

The aim of the Pupil Premium funding is to enable to the school to close gaps and ensure that all students achieve their maximum potential. Pupil Premium funding is not spent on one areas, bud used as part of the school budget to support a number of areas for learners eligible for Pupil Premium

Review of 2017/18 and September 2018 Strategy:

  1. It is clear to the Governors and Leadership of Grange Primary that the pupil outcomes for academic year 2017-18 were well below what was being aimed for. Progress indicators using matched prior attainment demonstrated low progress scores and particularly for disadvantaged pupils. Grange Primary WILL NOT ACCEPT this.
  2. Last year Grange Primary worked hard to stabilise staffing and meet the needs of the children in a time of change and leadership transition. The Governors are proud of the point that has been reached with a settled staff working systematically with a newly appointed permanent Senior Leadership team and this is the platform upon which to raise outcomes for all our Grange Primary children and in particular the children falling into the disadvantaged category
  3. Our School leadership believe that historical and current disadvantage affects a child’s future and our aim is for education to narrow and eradicate any gap caused by disadvantage.
  4. Our school believes in tackling disadvantage by investing Pupil Premium funding towards achieving strong Teaching for all children and in particular disadvantaged children, by structuring our staffing so that there is dedicated provision for disadvantaged children. The provision will take the form of high quality teaching; interventions; broader education such as metacognition; enriching experiences and raising sense of self-worth and self-esteem

Our approach focuses upon a strategy of KNOWING the disadvantaged children which means being aware of their needs, planning for them; tracking the impact of the specific provision and providing enriching experiences for them

A
Raise attainment in Reading and Writing for Pupil Premium students in
Keystage 2

Small
group focus teaching and intervention in Reading and Writing, overseen
by the Leadership Team, Lead for Phonics and Literacy, and carried out
by class teachers, HLTAs, Inclusion Lead and SENCO.
Developed as an ongoing model for 2017-18

Small
group teaching for Reading and Writing has had a significant impact in
KS2, particularly in Year 6 (exp+ and GD) and Year 5 (significant
progress particularly for those working below ARE).

Small
group teaching has both allowed teaching to be more targeted to close
gaps in learning, and provided a safer space for learners to develop
their confidence and become more active and engaged in lessons.

-Works
best with close oversight and grouping from Phase Lead (teaching Year 5
English groups during Spring and Summer), and experienced support staff
(HLTAs who know the pupils extremely well and have developed a positive
relationship through Nurture programmes).
Area to consolidate and extend for 2018-19, particularly for current
Year 5/future Year 6.

£42,126

 

B
Raise attainment, and progress for learners in Maths in Key Stage 1 and
Keystage 2

Small
group focus teaching and intervention in Maths for KS1 and KS2

Small
group teaching for Maths has had significant impact, particularly in
KS2 where it has been delivered in smaller groups and with closer
oversight (Maths Lead is distinctly linked to KS1).

Look
to continue in KS2, consider developing in KS1 with

-Specific
focus around Year 1 and 2 (resources, scheme of work etc.).

-Joint-planning/review
with Deputy Headteacher/Lead for KS1 to ensure that interventions and
materials are targeted at discrete gaps, and reviewed to assess whether
they are effective.

C
Increased role of Phase Lead and Teacher tracking for Pupil premium
students,  to develop target-setting,
tracking and strategic support in class and through intervention.

Assessment
system highlight PP and non-PP learners attainment, Middle Leaders
target gaps with intervention, pupil and teacher support for impact.

Assessment
system has supported staff awareness of learners eligible for PP, and
so they can be grouped and supported discretely, for academic and
holistic support (see below). Targeted support had an impact in Autumn
and Summer, though its efficacy was limited in Spring due to absence of
Key MLs and SLT. In class support while initially targeted for these
learners, has been reactive to changes in roll, leavers and new
admissions particularly those with complex needs and/or EHCP.

 

Tracking
system is now in place and can be continued without additional cost for
2018-19.

 

Targeted
grouping and intervention support should should continue,

 

PP
could be considered as a discrete area for review with each teacher for
Termly evaluation, to raise awareness and to facilitate reflection and
gap analysis below ML.

D
Developed outcomes for learners with Social, Emotional and Mental
Health Needs, to access effective in class and therapeutic support. 

Developing
provision through increased access to Therapeutic support in school,
dedicated time for Nurture programmes delivered in house by trained
staff, extension of Ed. Psych. Allocation for emergency assessment and
in-house training.

There
has been a decrease in exclusions, both for PP and Non-PP students with
SEN/D.
The extension of provision has provided key emotional support for SEN/D
learners with SEMH and helped maintained placements, supported
reintegration and increased time in classrooms (particularly through
alternative Nurture programmes).

From
Summer Term this has been extended to a alternate registration and
tracking model (‘Superstar Squad).

Very
effective use of funding, meeting the needs of the pupils with PP and
those of the school.

 

Consider
expanding tracking mechanisms to capture impact particularly for
Superstar Squad including;

-Behaviour
Monitoring (in line with tracking introduced Spring 2018)

-Time
in class/call out monitoring.

-Pupil/Parent/teacher
feedback.

Learners
eligible for Pupil Premium are effectively engaged in the whole-school
offer, through access to high quality sports and extra-curricular
programmes.

 

Pupils
eligible for PP are effectively engaged in the whole-school offer, and
access high quality sporting activities, trips and extended day
services.

Eligible
Pupils have been highly engaged and motivated by the extended offer,
particularly the Sports coaching (developing the quality of PE lessons
and delivery), and considerable range of afterschool activities they
could access.

 

Look
to continue either as a continuation of the PP grant or as part of the
whole school offer.

 

£24,096

Home
school partnerships are effectively supported through high quality
tracking, conversations and partnership working. 

Targeted
support and intervention through the role of the Family Liasion
Officer, Deputy CP Officer, and EAL Lead to promote accees,s
communication attendance and home-school boundaries. 

Impact
for a small number of students eligible for PP who received
intervention, tracking and followed a home/school communication
programme.

Greater
impact for families linked to services, attendance tracking and follow
up conversations linked to the class teacher and SLT.

Consider
developing to provide a broader offer for all parents, capitalising on
areas of success like language programmes and coordinated with Early
Intervention Services around areas of parental/school interest and need.
