Use of Pupil Premium
The Government initiative to improve the outcomes for disadvantaged pupils provides schools with additional funding for each child who is entitled to, or ever has been entitled to, Free School Meals (FSM) over the last 6 years.
From April 2014, maintained schools (funded by the local education authority), non-maintained special schools (not funded by the local education authority) will also attract the Pupil Premium for children:
- that were adopted from care on or after 30 December 2005 (under the Adoption and Children Act 2002);
- that left care under a Special Guardianship Order on or after 30 December 2005 (under the Children Act 1989);
- that left care under a Residential Order on or after 14 October 1991 (under the Children Act 1989);
- where the parent self-declares their child’s status to the school, providing supporting evidence (e.g. an adoption order); and
- where the school records on the January School Census that it has a child on roll who meets the above criteria.
- where their parents are currently serving in the armed forces.
Children who are currently in care will be allocated funding through Virtual Schools accessible following the first PEP (Personal Education Plan) meeting, via an application form.
All schools have an obligation to report on how the money has been spent and the impact that it has had on the achievement of the pupils.
How we are planning to use the money 2017/2018
We are using the money to support eligible pupils in a holistic way, taking into consideration their academic, emotional and social well-being. We continually review provision, using data analysis to track pupil progress and achievement. Provisions may be changed throughout the year to meet pupil needs.

OBJECTIVES OF PUPIL PREMIUM SPENDING
When making decisions about using pupil premium funding it is important to consider the context of the school and the subsequent challenges faced. Common barriers for FSM children can be less support at home, weak language and communication skills, lack of confidence, more frequent behaviour difficulties, and attendance and punctuality issues. There may also be complex family situations that prevent children from flourishing. The challenges are varied and there is no “one size fits all”. Our key objective in using the Pupil Premium Grant is to diminish the difference between pupil groups. As a school we have a good track record of ensuring that pupils make good progress, but historically levels of attainment have been lower for FSM (eligible for free school meals) – this is also a national trend. Through targeted interventions we are working to eliminate barriers to learning and progress. For children who start school with low attainment on entry, our aim is to ensure that they make accelerated progress in order to reach age related expectations + as they move through the school.
We have analysed our data thoroughly, examined the impact of current interventions and have made use of a range of research to inform our decision making:
- Parental engagement (LPPA)
- Importance of quality first teaching (Sutton Trust)
- Feedback and Peer Tutoring (Education Endowment Foundation Toolkit).
This year our school priorities are to:
- Continue to increase the amount of Quality First Teaching and Learning
- Increase % of children working at age related expectation in Reading, Writing and Maths
- Raise attainment in GPS
- Increase the % of CHILDREN EXCEEDING EXPECTATIONS/working at a greater depth
- Diminish the difference for KEY GROUPS– new joiners, persistent absentees, disadvantaged children and SEN
