Pupil Premium

Report on the use of Pupil Premium Funding 2018/19

 

Overview

 

The Pupil Premium is designed to ensure that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.  The funding is allocated to Local Authorities and schools with pupils from Reception to Y11 who are eligible for free school meals (FSM), are looked after or have parents currently in the Armed Forces.  In 2018/19 the funding allocated was £1,320 per child and £300 for children of Armed Forces families.   

From April 2012 the coverage of the Premium was widened to include those eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years.

Total amount allocated to the school for the current academic year.

£19,981

Explain how the previous year’s allocation was spent?

Details of how last year’s allocation was spent:

  • Communication groups
  • Catch up literacy or numeracy sessions
  • 1:1 tuition
  • Parent/pupil learning workshops/forums
  • Whole-class interventions as detailed in the Pupil Premium Handbook

 

How will the money be spent this academic year?

 

 We have identified the following  barriers to learning for pupil premium pupils:

  • financial constraints sometimes potentially could be a barrier to accessing school trips
  • the need for support with homework which is not always possible in some circumstances
  • the need for social skills support in some circumstances or nurture group support to ensure the wellbeing of the whole child
  • some pupils may need interventions/extra tuition to best support their learning

Given the range of ages, abilities and needs of children

eligible for support via Pupil Premium funding, the school’s use of the grant includes:

·         1:1 tuition

·         support for residential trips

·         support for home learning

·         interventions to develop reading skills

·         social skills groups / nurture groups

·         staff development in order to provide evidence-based interventions such as those in the Pupil Premium Handbook

Statement about the effect of the expenditure on the educational attainment of those pupils who were eligible for pupil premium

The use of 1:1 Tuition and small group interventions have a positive impact on our national assessment outcomes at KS2.  FSM pupils at Oakington Primary in 2018 achieved good progress in both English and mathematics and in some cases exceeded this. Small group interventions have also had a positive impact on results at KS1, with accelerated progress being achieved. 

The impact of specific interventions is recorded on pupils’ learning plans and reported directly to parents at consultation evenings or via Structured Conversations/ Reviews.
