Pupil Premium

Pupil premium Statement 

The Pupil Premium is allocated to all children who are currently known to be eligible for free school meals or have been eligible at any point in the past 6 years and children who have been looked after for 1 day or more, are adopted or leave care under a Special Guardianship Order or a Residence Order.

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable. It is for schools to decide how to spend Pupil Premium, allocated as they are best placed to assess what is needed. However they will be held accountable for how they have used this additional funding to support pupils from low-income families.

Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit, however they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support. New measures will be included in the performance tables that will capture the achievement of those deprived pupils covered by the Pupil Premium. Schools are also required to publish online information about how they have used the Premium. This will ensure that parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of pupils covered by the Premium.

ELKLAN To further support our children with speech and language difficulties (currently 5 pupil premium children receiving support from the SALT team) We are training one of our LSAs to become a Speech and Language Teaching Assistant in school. She will mainly support Year R where the need for support is great, but she will also work alongside a KS1 teaching assistant to ensure children are receiving adequate support.

Team Teach Training  We are training 6 members of staff to allow us to further develop positive handling strategies (with safety being paramount) to support children with emotional and mental health difficulties who may need physical restraint or intervention. The training should help to reduce incidents, improve safety and boost staff confidence. Plus training helps employers meet their obligations under Health & Safety legislation.

Interventions  9 of our pupil premium children are receiving intervention in English , Maths. This includes the SIDNEY programme , Fisher Family Trust, Precision Teaching, LIFT OFF and First Class at number. We are working hard as a school to ensure the work that the children complete in interventions is having an impact on what we see in class and their overall progress.

FSM children  To enable these children to broaden their life experiences, we have been able to offer out of school activities. One child was able to visit London with his mother and sibling on an educational trip to the Natural History and Science Museums. This trip has given him the chance to develop his inquisitive mind, extend his language skills and enrich his experiences. FSM children have signed up for summer activities funded by us such as swimming sessions and multiskills activity weeks.

ELSA: 7 of our Pupil Premium children have received support from our ELSA this year. For some children this has been a short planned block of support, for others an ongoing support programme. Each child has a Boxall Profile completed before and an ELSA assessment form before and after working with the ELSA. Based on these assessments, each child has an individualised session planned. The ELSA sessions have proved a great success and have a big impact on improving children’s self esteem, developing their confidence, social skills and understanding their feelings. Due to the success of ELSA time we are increasing the time for our ELSA sessions to 4 ½ days per week.

First class at number: 3 of our pupil premium childrenreceived support with this programme.One year 2 childachieved age related for maths. One year one child achieved age related, one did not, but this child is also a child with SEND. This programme is being run in both Year 1 and 2 to help target children who have gaps in their learning.

Speech and Language Link:  All year R children and selected year ½ children were screened using the language link assessment.Selected children across the school were also screened using the speech link assessment.5 of our pupil premium children had significant speech and language difficulties and were referred to Speech and language therapy for support.

Interventions 8 of our pupil premium children received extra support with English. 7 of these children also had special educational needs. 3 children in year R continue to receive support and will continue to receive support in year 1.
