Pupil Premium

Woden Pupil Premium Strategy Statement  

The government introduced Pupil Premium with the aim of increasing social mobility, reducing the attainment gap between the highest and lowest achieving pupils nationally and enabling more pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds to attend university.

Pupil Premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals.

Pupil Premium is additional funding received by schools for each pupil from disadvantaged families or background. The funding brings in £1320 per pupil. It is allocated to schools, based on the number of children who are known to have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years. This is one of the government’s key educational policies. It is based on the findings that show that, as a group, children who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in time, have consistently lower attainment than those who have never been eligible. It also includes children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months and children where a parent serves in the armed forces.

Levels of deprivation at Woden Primary are significantly higher than nationally and the proportion of Pupil Premium children at 29.2% is well above the National figure of 25%. Furthermore, a significant proportion of other children are just above the threshold or unable to apply for free school meals. Even if a pupil does not have a school dinner, it is vital for a school to know if they are entitled to a free school meal.

Schools are free to determine how they spend this funding but are obliged to publish information about how the money is spent.

We have worked hard to ensure that the maximum number of pupils benefit from this funding.

Expenditure of Pupil Premium Funding 2016-17

Employment of one additional teacher and one School Direct in order to facilitate additional intervention for targeted groups identified in the school’s RAP.

Subsidising costs for Breakfast and After School club.

Capital spending to build 2 new classrooms in order to support the additional intervention time and staffing continues into 2016/17

Support for the training of Teaching Assistants- Increase number of trained HLTAs in School

Additional resources in order to maximise progress and attainment of all identified pupils.

Provide opportunities for all Year 6, Year 4 and Year 2 pupils to experience a residential trip away from home. In addition access to day trips for all other year groups will be subsidised in order to improve life experiences.

Spending (in addition to the Sports Grant) in order to employ outside Agency Sports coaches. Thereby improving our response to quality PE but provide further time for teaching staff to work with identified children.

How Impact will be measured?

The school will evaluate the impact on each pupil from termly Teacher Assessment. This will be recorded and discussed as part of our Termly Pupil Progress meetings, the results of which will be fed in the following term’s Intervention provision (RAP).

We will measure progress and attainment in reading, writing and maths as a result of intervention and additional support.

 In-school barriers (issues to be addressed in school, such as poor oral language skills)
A.     All Baseline entry scores are well below age related
B.     Pupil attendance (although rising) is below National Average
C.  
External barriers (issues which also require action outside school, such as low attendance rates)
D.  
4.   Desired outcomes  
  Desired outcomes and how they will be measured Success criteria  
A.     Diminish any differences between PP pupils and Other Pupils The gap between progress scores are below 1.0  
B.     Improve and/or consolidate the rate of progress for eligible children Rapid progress made from low starting points  
C.     Increase the rate of attendance for PP pupils Increase the number of families (pupils) who engage with family support services  
D.          
         

 

5.   Planned expenditure
Academic year 2017/18
The three headings below enable schools to demonstrate how they are using the pupil premium to improve classroom pedagogy, provide targeted support and support whole school strategies.
    i.   Quality of teaching for all
Desired outcome Chosen action / approach What is the evidence and rationale for this choice? How will you ensure it is implemented well? Staff lead When will you review implementation?
Diminish any differences between PP pupils and Other Pupils Appoint a Pupil Premium Champion

Additional staff will ensure quality first teaching across the School

We are keen to ensure there are no in school or external gaps. TAs and additional teachers can be effectively used to ensure progress and attainment Pupil Premium Champion appointed

 iii.   Other approaches
Desired outcome Chosen action/approach What is the evidence and rationale for this choice? How will you ensure it is implemented well? Staff lead When will you review implementation?
Improve and/or consolidate the rate of progress for eligible children The family worker and EFEO will develop family attendance, learning and well-being support Attendance can be due to environmental factors affecting a child’s health and well-being Monitored by LA Attendance lead HT Termly
Increase the opportunity for children to attend residential visits To ensure any pupils in Year 2, 4 and 6 can attend residential visits by subsidising these

 

Subsidise the increasing cost of these to ensure access for all as a result of the Governments welfare reforms Monitor the number of children attending these SBM July 2018
Increased involvement in sports and targeted motor skill development increasing fitness and participation levels across school Provide lunchtime and after school sports provision for targeted pupils

 

 

Though the impact of sports provision is thought to be low by the EEF we feel the school’s ethos is built on team and individual learning behaviour skills that enable pupils to access learning Number of pupil participation in sports Sports lead/Clubs lead July 2018
