Report on the impact of Pupil Premium funding 2015

Allocation 2014-15 = £7,800

The pupil premium is an allocation of funding provided to schools to support children who may be vulnerable to underachievement. The amount received is dependent upon the number of children who are eligible and have claimed for free school meals at any time in the last six years.

Principles

– We ensure that appropriate provision is made for children who belong to vulnerable groups and that socially disadvantaged children have their needs adequately assessed and met.

– We recognise that not all children who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged and we also recognise that not all children that are disadvantaged have free school meals.

– We allocate Pupil Premium funding to support any child the school has identified as being socially disadvantaged and should be making better progress.

– We will allocate Pupil Premium funding after a needs analysis to identify priority groups and individuals.

Provision:

  • Providing a breakfast in order to ensure the best possible start to the school day.
  • Providing targeted interventions focusing on social development phonics, spelling, reading, writing and number skills.
  • Enabling all children to access enrichment opportunities e.g. music lessons, extra curricular sporting activities or residential trips.
  • Homework Club for targeted children.
  • Active play games at lunch time: TA working with small groups to develop social play
  • From February 2015 we are funding an additional Teaching Assistant for 10 hours per week to reduce teaching groups and therefore target children more effectively.
  • Daily reading with an adult to ensure that the children have access to a range of literature and can improve their reading skills.
  • Power of 10 maths intervention twice weekly and at home
  • A writing and social intervention group
  • School milk was provided to several children across the school enabling them to keep their brains working better right until lunch time!
  • A group of children enjoyed a residential outdoor adventure holiday enabling them to build confidence, stay away from home, experience new activities and develop social skills.

Impact:

All our children made good progress with the new curriculum objectives. As with all data this year assessing without levels has made it tricky to show exact attainment. However 90% of our PP children are working within the expected level in reading and 55% of our PP children are working within the expected level in maths and writing.

In Year 6 2015 100% of our tiny PP cohort made level4 in reading writing and maths and level 5 in SPAG; this is expected progress and more than the national average. One of our pupils made a +4 APS point gain in maths as well as +3 in writing which was reflected in the achievement of level 5 in SPAG.

Children are happy to come to school and are ready to learn

Through circle time we identify how the children are feeling and what they are proud of.

All children have made progress in phonics: all Y1 passed the phonics test and all children are assessed through the phases with extra support provided to close gaps.

All the PP children took part if various sporting activities during the year including KS1 and KS2 inter school cross country, interschool athletics.
