Use of Pupil Premium 2013-2014

 

Background

The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months and children who come from Services families. Since September 2012 this has also included pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure).

 Schools have the freedom to spend the Pupil Premium, which is additional to the underlying schools budget, in a way they believe will best support the raising of attainment and help overcome barriers to learning for the most vulnerable pupils.

Since September 2012, we are required to publish online information about how we have used the Premium. This will ensure that parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of pupils covered by the Premium and the extra support that they receive.

The number of children eligible for Free School Meals in 2013-2014 is 17.

The money we received was £14350

 

Inclusion in all school activities is paramount to support pupil development.

 

The support offered includes:

 

  • Enhanced staffing: TAs (Teaching Assistants) to keep ratios low and support children with additional needs as well as gifted and talented children. Greater focus on interventions to support learning.

  • Additional Level 6 materials purchased and support provided

  • Training and increased TA time to support children including the provision of:
    • 1st Class@maths

    • Success@arithmetic

  • The subsidy of school trips and the provision of extra -curricular activities

  • Purchase of a year license of Mathletics

  • Assessment materials

  • Purchase of O tracker which can highlight progress and attainment of FSM. 

    We constantly monitor the impact of this support through:

  • Termly assessments, tracking the children to ensure progress is maintained

  • Termly discussions with staff & TAs and Parent consultation evenings to evaluate the growth of confidence and self-esteem in the classroom.
