Pupil Premium

The Background

There are significant differences in how well pupils from deprived backgrounds do in school compared to their more affluent peers. These differences persist through all stages of education, including entry into higher education. The highest early achievers from deprived backgrounds are overtaken by lower achieving children from advantaged backgrounds by age seven. The gap widens further during secondary education and persists into higher education. The likelihood of a pupil eligible for FSM achieving five or more GCSEs at A*-C including English and mathematics is less than one third of a non-FSM pupil. A pupil from a non-deprived background is more than twice as likely to go on to study at university as their deprived peer.  The DfE therefore provides additional funding to schools to support these specific groups of pupils.

Allocation

Pupil Premium funding  is allocated according to the number of pupils on roll who are eligible for free school meals (FSM), the number of children of armed forces parents, and an allocation for each pupil who has been ‘Looked After’ (in care) from 2014 for 1 day or more. In 2012, funding was extended to include pupils who have been eligible for free school meals within the last 6 years whether they continue to claim or not.

Pupil allocation £26,000

This financial year we intend to use the funding to:

  • Increase further the use of targeted one to one teacher-led interventions for pupil premium pupils to complement high quality teaching in the classroom;
  • Use Teaching Assistants (using resources such as Toe by Toe, Direct Phonics for literacy, and Plus 1 and Power of 2 in Maths) to provide one to one interventions;
  • Fund participation in trips and residentials;
  • Additionally use a pupil premium funded Teacher and Teaching Assistant for in-class support for pupil premium pupils;
  • Use Accelerated Reader and Switch on to encourage literacy skills and invest in more resources to support this.
  • Intended impact:
  • Close the gap between the attainment of Pupil Premium (PP) pupils and non–PP pupils in 2014-15.

     

    2013-14

    Pupil Premium allocation £14,400

    This financial year we have used the money to:

    • increase one to one interventions by both Teachers and Teaching Assistants (using resources such as Toe by Toe, Plus 1 and Power of 2 in Maths);
    • Increased additional in-class support for pupil premium pupils;
    • Continued to use Accelerated Reader and ‘Switch On’ to encourage literacy skills and invested in more resources to support this.
  • Intended impact:
  • Close the gap between the attainment of Pupil Premium (PP) pupils and non – PP pupils. This will be updated after the outcomes of key stage SATs are known.

     

    2012-13

    Pupil Premium allocation £6,000

    This financial year we have used the money to:

    • Extend Accelerated Reader to inspire children to read for pleasure;
    • Extend use of the Nottinghamshire Education Library Service and increase access to a wide range of fiction and non-fiction books.
  • Impact; N.B. numbers of children in each category are extremely small so percentages should be treated with caution. A more detailed pupil by pupil analysis and evaluation of impact is undertaken by the school and presented to the Governing Body who challenge the findings. This is not shared on this website as our small pupil numbers would result in a lack of pupil confidentiality leading to individuals potentially being identified.
