Pupil Premium

 

St Mary’s C.E. Primary School

Pupil Premium Grant Expenditure: 2015/16 


Rationale

The Government introduced the Pupil Premium Grant in April 2011 which is a specific grant based on the school census figures for pupils registered as eligible for Free School Meals or children who are Looked After (in the care of the local authority). Children whose parents serve in the armed forces are also eligible for this premium. In 2012 – 13 it has been expanded to include all children who have been eligible for FSM within the last 6 years. 

This money is additional to main school funding and we use it to address any underlying inequalities between groups of children by ensuring that funding reaches the pupils who need it most.

 

Spend

This money is used to help provide for the following initiatives: 

  • Teaching Assistant Support: to help children have secure knowledge of the basic skills in Numeracy and Literacy. 
  • Funding to support school trips: to enhance the curriculum, ensuring the children are able to participate on trips and to give pupils the opportunity to experience new and challenging activities.
  • One to One Tuition: to help children achieve their best in maths and English through support on an individual basis.
  • Funding Club Activities: to ensure the children are able to take part, to provide them with the opportunity to develop new skills and experience new challenging activities.
  • Funding specific resources.
  • Pastoral and SEAL Support: this one to one or small group support assists with social and emotional aspects of learning and helps to create confident learners who enjoy all aspects of learning and school life. Specialist outside providers are often bought in to address particular barriers to learning.
  • Parent workshops.
  • Staff Training.

What are we doing to accelerate the progress of pupils who are eligible for PPG and how successful have they been?

 

This money is used to help provide for the following initiatives: 

  • Teaching Assistant Support: to help children have secure knowledge of the basic skills in Mathematics and English. 
  • Funding to support school trips: to enhance the curriculum, ensuring the children are able to participate on trips and to give pupils the opportunity to experience new and challenging activities.
  • One to One Tuition: to help children achieve their best in maths and English through support on an individual basis.
  • Funding Club Activities: to ensure the children are able to take part, to provide them with the opportunity to develop new skills and experience new challenging activities.
  • Funding specific resources.
  •  Pastoral and Play Therapy Support: this one to one or small group support assists with social and emotional aspects of learning and helps to create confident learners who enjoy all aspects of learning and school life. 
  • Parent workshops.
  • Staff Training in targeted areas e.g.Dyscalculia and Attachment Issues

 

Impact

  • Individual: The success of the programmes we have in place is demonstrated in our internal data with all pupils eligible for Pupil Premium Grant making good, and in some cases outstanding progress. KS1 pupils who require emotional and behavioural support are tested before and after interventions using the Boxhall Profile and at KS2 we use the Southampton scores to measure progress and target support accurately. Confidence of all pupils is increasing as a result of the targeted support.
  • Nationally: End of Key Stage assessments show that the pupils eligible for Pupil Premium within our school are  making better progress than pupils nationally and are working at the expected standard for their age group.

 

PE and Sports Grant

The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 to 2014, 2014 to 2015 and 2015-16 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – has been allocated to Primary School Budgets.

This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
