Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium impact report

Pupil premium money is used to support and provide access to our curriculum for all students in receipt of pupil premium funding.

The table below outlines the key areas where the money is directed and how it was spent last academic year 2015 – 16.  There are graphs and data showing the impact this has had on results attached also.  We have tried to keep this clear, simple to understand and transparent but if anything requires further explanation please do not hesitate to contact us.

However, this only tells one small picture of the work we do to try and support all our students.  Whilst these tables identify where money has been spent to support PP students we spend a large proportion of our main school budget on supporting all our students through interventions and continually upskilling our team to provide appropriate support.

 

What did we spend?

Total budget academic year 2015-2016 = £50285.  Total spend on actions below £71533

Total number of students eligible =  21 Primary, 24 Secondary

What Funded? Why? Cost in academic year 2015-2016 Impact?
School Trips The school has made inclusion a priority and will fund 60% of the total cost of any trip or residential activity for any PP student.  We believe that this makes the amazing opportunities presented here affordable for all students.  In exceptional cases further funding may be made available by discussion. £5,439 Inclusion
Social / emotional
Self-belief and pride
Although we cannot show how attending a French trip to Paris, for example, has an impact on the learners results, we can see how they are engaged, motivated and see their self-esteem develop through the shared experience.
Curriculum Intervention To support each learner with specific learning interventions, that go beyond what a classroom support can offer, we at times remove learners to receive 1:1 or small group intervention.  Handwriting, reading and writing interventions took place over the year. Additional hours costs for maths teaching (£3000) See results data
Self-confidence in a skill
TA additional costs for reading intervention (£1500) Self-belief
Handwriting required no additional funding
Classroom support We believe students should have as much support in a classroom as possible.  We provide Teaching Assistants for learner’s who require support in a lesson.  English, math and literacy support is given.  The cost for this in the next column is when a student with a pp allocation has received this support. £28,200 See Data
Increased confidence and support
Self-belief
Motivation
Emotional Support We provide emotional support for all learners and PP learners have priority access to this service.  Counselling last a lesson over a period of weeks and can provide a sounding board and structured place where issues can be discussed.  Again, monies for PP students’ access to this service are recorded. £8,500 Self-confidence
This is a significant increase as we have now appointed an in school counsellor for 2 days a week instead of invoicing timed hours.  This allows us greater availability and easier access for our learners.  As a result more learners are accessing this service. Self-worth
Self-belief
Emotional support
Resources Resources are bought occasionally to support an individual’s access to the curriculum.  They can be as simple as stationary or a tailored reading scheme. £630 Inclusion
(£312 reading packets and £318 stationary)
Music Provision We provide discounted music provision for all PP learners to support them in developing and following interests in a musical instrument. £324 Inclusion
Self-development
Engagement
Homework club Homework clubs are run every lunch time to provide a calm and supportive place to do homework.  These are open to all our learners but priority is given to students with a PP allocation.  Some of our PP students find doing homework at home difficult. £3,800 See data
Each club is run by a teacher to support learning. Inclusion
Emotional and social support
1:1 wrap around support Last academic year we provided ‘wrap around support’ for two PP learners who required support not only in lessons but when moving around school and in unstructured play times.   This additional support was not initially funded. To cover the costs of TA additional hours and extra TA funded by the school. EHCP in place now for both learners.
Fully included in all aspects of school life
£11,000 Self-esteem and confidence both developed.
Sports TA 0.5 Support for learners with PP in PE lessons and to develop more capacity to offer free clubs before and after school to inspire and offer opportunities to all learners.  Clubs set up include the opportunity to fence and try golf alongside extra cricket and football clubs. £6840 (50% of timetable and afterschool clubs) Increased participation in sport
Experience
Motivation
Sense of community
Self-development
Self-belief
Self confidence
Looked After Children’s co-ordinator To provide a coordinator specifically for looked after children to address their specific social and emotional needs. £2,300 Emotional support
Self-development
Self-belief
Self confidence

We believe there are somethings money cannot buy… We pride ourselves on the time priority we give to emotional support, equality and inclusion all our students feel through our pastoral care.  We believe we cannot put a price on this and the impact it has on all our learners and our community.

Pupil Premium Plan Academic year 2016 – 2017

Total Budget allocation: £55297

PP-planned spending and interventions 2016-2017

The interventions we offer are being analysed for appropriateness to the individual needs of our learners in this cohort and SLT and PP champion have planned the year ahead.  Whilst some core things remain on offer to our PP learners a full independent review took place in October and the report is attached for this years planned spend.  The data manager is attending PP reviewer training as recommended by the Department of Education in October with plans to deliver the outcomes to whole staff.

Core practices that funding will be allocated towards are: Funding of Trips, Counselling, Ta support, LAC coordinator.

We have never and will never fund our SENDCO from this money.  We believe it is there to support the needs of identified learners through interventions and support.  The appropriate care of all our learners requires us as a school to have a SENDCO and this funding is additional to that.
