Pupil Premium Grant Expenditure

Financial Year 2014/2015

  What is the Pupil Premium?

 Pupil Premium is an element of funding that goes into our school budget to enable us to support our disadvantaged children and close the attainment gap between them and their peers.

 The funding is based on the number of children registered for Free School Meals (FSM) including those who have been registered for FSM over the past 6 years; it also includes looked after children and children whose parents are in the armed forces.

Impact of PPG spending

There has been progress made in ‘closing the gap’ which is monitored through Pupil Progress meetings every half term and evidenced to parents in reports. The table below shows the gap closing:

The above table shows that although the APS are still below national in all areas except disadvantaged writing, the gap is closing and, unlike in 2013, the in-school gap between disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged is not more than 2 APS in any area. In relation to national APS, the gap is 1.0 difference in Maths, but in Reading the gap is only 0.1 and in writing is non-existent. This is an improvement on the 2013 results and the same is true of in-house data, although this is moving at a slower rate.

  • Children who have received individual support, have reported increased confidence in whole class lessons and in some cases they have made more than the amount of progress expected
  • Increased support from external services g. Educational Psychology has provided PPG children with intensive support and individualised support plans aiding attainment and progress
  • Pupils have improved behaviour and concentration through 1:1 support and small group work, as well as whole school improved child to adult ratios. This is evidenced in lesson observations where at the end of the academic year 2013/2014, Behaviour and Safety was graded as good or better in 94% of lessons.
  • Families with PPG children have benefited from pastoral support improving attendance and engagement with school life
  • The work of the Reading Recovery Teacher has resulted in children making up ground in order to keep up with their peers and gaining in confidence to address areas of reading that they may find challenging
  • An investment in more IPads has given us the ability to use ICT to support learning. They have changed the focus and engagement of all pupils.
  • Some pupils within Year 2 and Year 6 receive small group booster sessions after school in order to focus upon individual targets within reading, writing and maths.

Governors and staff are monitoring carefully to allow evaluation of the impact and how this improves learning in our school.
