Pupil Premium Allocation
Pupil Premium Statement
The Government has set aside funding for schools to use in order to better support children who qualify for this Pupil Premium.
- Those identified as Pupil Premium who are not making expected progress or who are not yet meeting their national age related expectation
- Pupils from other vulnerable groups who are not making expected progress or who are not yet meeting their national age related expectation
- Breakfast club
- After school clubs
- Sports clubs
- Hercules lunchtime sports to support positive social times
- Training for staff to support children with autism
- Resources to support the child’s learning
- 1:1 phonics interventions
- Financial support with school trips
- Parents are also given ‘vouchers’ and they can let the school know when they would like to ‘spend’ their vouchers (e.g. new book bags, uniform, etc). This promotes parental involvement with how we can support the child and the family with their Pupil Premium funding.
The impact of this work is measured in % of progress figures for the individuals / target groups in Reading, Writing and Maths. Group analysis shows that most children in the vulnerable groups are attaining higher than their ager related expectation nationally or are making at least good progress to narrow the gaps between themselves and their peers. The impact of teaching provision has been measured through regular lesson observations, learning walks and a robust performance management system: good progress has been made towards meeting our target or providing outstanding teaching. Work provided by outside agencies is monitored through final reports and meetings with representatives from the relevant agencies, together with continued monitoring of individuals.
For the academic year 2016-17, we will continue to focus on pupils who qualify for FSM and other vulnerable groups as identified by the DFE and Ofsted.
We have prioritised the use of the Pupil Premium as follows:
- The purchase of further resources for the teaching of maths, reading, writing, spelling and phonics
- In Service Training to support the use of new resources and to further improve the teaching of maths, reading, writing, spelling and phonics
- Provision of further reading resources appropriate for high interest / lower ability readers
- Provision for emotional and social needs including a ‘Think Good, Feel Good’ programme.
- The purchase of additional services from external agencies to support the continued progress and well-being of individuals
- The purchase of school meals for those children who qualify for Pupil Premium Funding and choose to have a hot school meal
- The funding of school trips, residential and before / after school clubs.
