Pupil Premium Spending Review for 2017/18

Pupil Premium Spending Review for 2017/18

  • Number of students eligible for pupil premium funding = 305
  • % of students eligible for pupil premium funding = 69.8%
  • The sum of money allocated to the school for the year 2017/18 was £285,175

 

Background

The pupil premium is an allocation of funding, in addition to main school funding, which schools receive to the number of children in specific groups.

Schools receive Pupil Premium funding for:

  • All children who are eligible for free school meals (FSM).
  • All children who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years.
  • All children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months by someone other than their immediate family.

The government awards this funding to help raise attainment for these children.  National data shows that as a group, children who have been eligible for FSM at any point in time have consistently lower educational attainment than those who have never been eligible for FSM.

A service premium has also been introduced for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.  This is designed to support the emotional and social well-being of these pupils.

It is up to the schools to decide how the pupil premium is spent, but this funding should be used to support these children.  All schools are required to publish, on their websites, what funding they have received and how the money is used.

 

Our aims last year were to:

  • Promote progress of disadvantaged pupils so that it is line with the national average for progress of non- disadvantaged pupils
  • Accelerated progress for the most disadvantaged pupils so the gap between pupils eligible for pupil premium and their peers are reduced in all areas compared to summer 2015.

In order to close the gaps, we looked at best practise and research.  This lead us to conclude that the most effective ways to raise attainment for all and close the gaps for the most disadvantaged were through:

  • Improving the quality of provision across the board, in particular the quality of teaching in classrooms-we did this by (a) ensuring our staff are well trained and have adequate time to carry out their roles and (b) ensuring good support in each class to rapidly address any underachievement.
  • Improved data analysis that ensures that staff at all levels are aware of the progress of disadvantaged pupils and have clear plans as to how to improve this.
  • Carefully considered interventions and activities to target specific needs, we did this by having additional teaching and support staff who can put on specific interventions for particular groups.
  • Increasing enjoyment of and participation in all aspects of school life-we did this by subsidising a range of activities and clubs.
