Pupil Premium

2017/2018

 

Pupil Premium

 

The government now gives Pupil Premium funding to all schools to enhance the learning opportunities for children who are eligible for free school meals and for children in care. The impact of Pupil Premium spending can, if wisely used, benefit all pupils.

 

The Pupil Premium is a government initiative that targets extra money at pupils from deprived backgrounds who, research shows, often underachieve compared to their non-deprived peers. The premium is provided in order to support these pupils in reaching their potential.

 

Pupil Premium Grant 2017-18 is as follows:

  • Pupils in year groups reception to year 6 recorded as Ever 6 FSM £1,320

  • Pupils in years 7 to 11 recorded as Ever 6 FSM £935

  • Looked-after children (LAC) defined in the Children Act 1989 as one who is in the care of, or provided with accommodation by, an English local authority £1,900

  • Children who have ceased to be looked after by a local authority in England and Wales because of adoption, a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order or a residence order £1,900

    It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.

    Schools are required to publish information about their use of the Pupil Premium on their website. Please do ask our Head Teacher, Deputy Head Teacher if you would like any further details.

    Strategy Statement & Review

    Pupil Premium Policy

     

    Principles

     

    At Hillbourne Primary School, we seek:

     

  • to ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of the pupils;

     

  • to ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed;

     

    In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged;

    We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being in need of intervention and support;

    Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis, which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals.

     

    Provision

     

    In order to meet the above requirements, the Governing Body of Hillbourne will ensure that provision is made which secures the teaching and learning opportunities that meet the needs of all pupils. Our priority in the academic year 2017-2018 will be focussed on ‘narrowing the gap’ for those pupils not on track to achieve Age Related Expectations (ARE) at the end of Key Stage 2 and those falling short of their expected progress based on Key Stage 1 results. We will also aim to narrow the gap in writing progress for Pupil Premium Children.

     

    As part of the additional provision made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, the governors of the school will ensure that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed through termly pupil progress meetings. The funding will be used to narrow or close the gap between the achievement of disadvantaged pupils and their peers.

     

    In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, the governors of the school recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged.

     

    The governors also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. The governors reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.

     

    The range of provision

     

  • Facilitating pupils’ access to education

  • Facilitating pupils’ access to the curriculum

  • Additional teaching and learning opportunities

  • Alternative support and intervention, arranged through a pupil’s parents, where funds are available after securing the school’s own programme

     

    The Inclusion Leader, in conjunction with the Headteacher, will maintain an ongoing programme of support for socially disadvantaged pupils, which will be subject to the oversight of the Governors’ Curriculum and Pupil-Related Committee.

     

    Reporting

     

    It will be the responsibility of the Inclusion Leader, to produce a termly report for the Governors’ Curriculum and Pupil-Related Committee.

     

  • The progress made towards narrowing the gap, by year group, for socially disadvantaged pupils.

  • An outline of the provision that was made during the term since the last meeting.

  • An evaluation of the cost effectiveness, in terms of the progress made by the pupils receiving a particular provision, when compared with other forms of support.

     

    It will be the responsibility of the main Governing Body to ensure and outline of the school’s progress towards ‘narrowing the gap’ for socially disadvantaged pupils is given to the school’s governors on a termly basis.

     

    The Governing Body will consider the information provided in the light of the data relating to the progress of the school’s socially disadvantaged pupils in conjunction with the revised schools’ league tables.

     

    The governors of Hillbourne will ensure that there is an annual statement to the parents on how the Pupil Premium funding has been used to address the issue of ‘narrowing the gap’, for socially disadvantaged pupils. This task will be carried out within the requirements published by the Department for Education.

     

    Success Criteria

     

    The evaluation of this policy is based on how quickly the school can ‘narrow the gap’ between socially disadvantaged pupils and their peers. Targets will be identified and evaluated annually and included in the School Development Plan.

     

    The success criteria for the Pupil Premium Policy are:

     

  • Early intervention and support for socially disadvantaged children.

  • The vast majority of socially disadvantaged children will meet their individual targets.

  • Effective parental pupil school support.

  • Having an effective system for identifying, assessing and monitoring pupils.

  • Having a whole-school approach.

  • Create a positive school atmosphere in which pupils’ differences are recognised and valued as full members of the school community; developing confident and independent learners.

     

    Appeals

     

    Any appeal in connection with the allocation of the Pupil Premium funding will be dealt with through the Governors’ appeals panel.

Impact 2016-17

Our Pupil Premium children made greater progress in reading than Non Pupil Premium children and progress is above national figures. Pupil premium children also made greater progress in maths than our Non Pupil Premium children. Pupil premium children made less progress in writing.
