PUPIL PREMIUM

 

 

Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings and children who have been or are currently looked after.  This budget also includes pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure).

Schools are free to spend Pupil Premium as they see fit.  For example, it can be used for additional support in classes, for Early Intervention Support Worker time, for clubs at school or recommended by the school.  However we will be held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families.  We are required to publish online information about how we have used the Pupil Premium.  This will ensure that parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of pupils covered by Pupil Premium and the extra support that they receive.

Performance of disadvantaged pupils in Foundation Stage

In 2014, 53% of children in the 30% most deprived Super Output areas in England achieved a good level of development. This compares with 65% of children in other areas and shows a gap of 12 percentage points. At Cheam Park Farm Infants School 71% of the disadvantaged children, as indicated by those registered as Pupil Premium children, achieved a good level of development compared with 69% of the whole year group. The disadvantaged children are achieving equally well, if not better than the whole cohort.

Summary of PPG spending  2013/14

Principles in spending PPG:

  • We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils
  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed
  • In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged
  • We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.
  • Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority groups or individuals. Limited funding and resources means that not all children receiving free school meals will be in receipt of pupil premium interventions at one time

 

Objectives in spending PPG

  1. To ensure all children are challenged to achieve in reading, writing and mathematics.
  2. To close the attainment gap between boys and girls.
  3. To support children’s well-being and progress through working with families and giving guidance on a range of areas from attendance, routine, behaviour and eating issues.
  4. To support children’s overall development, self-confidence and self-esteem and to offer new and challenging experiences.
  5. To improve attendance.

Summary of spending and actions taken:

  1. Employed and trained TAs to support differentiated groups.
  2. Bought into Early Intervention Support Worker service.
  3. Funded extra-curricular activities including interim child care
  4. Funded SEAL, ELSA and other relevant support training for teaching assistants.
  5. Funded ‘Be there Bear’ Attendance Imitative.

Outcomes to date:

  1. The impact of funding small group differentiated support was evidenced in good achievement in Key Stage 1, in reading, writing and mathematics for FSM children, at least 1 APS above national figures.
  2. The Early Intervention Support Worker provided advice and support for families.  The support included a range of parenting behaviour techniques and access to a behaviour programme
  3. The impact of providing access to extra-curricular activities is evident in achievements and increased confidence and self-esteem.
  4. We continue to develop the TA’s into competent, qualified staff to work with the children.
  5. Attendance remains consistently at 96% resulting in good attainment.
