Pupil Premium Strategy 2016

Overview

The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) was introduced in April 2011. The funding, received as an additional sum to the general annual grant (calculated using the total number of children on roll), is based on school census figures for the following children:

 

Funding per child

Those eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the past six years. 

£1320

Those who have been adopted, or have a special guardianship, residence or child arrangements order in place.

£1900

Those recorded as a service child or in receipt of a child pension from the Ministry of Defence.

£300

 Eligibility for Free School Meals

Families who are in receipt of one or more of the following are entitled to free school meals and by registering, unlock vital funding that the school can use to support their child:

  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The guaranteed element of Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
  • Working Tax Credit run-on, paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
  • Universal Credit

Applying for Free School Meals

Parents/carers can register for free school meals by completing a short online form using the web address: http://www.gloucestershire.gov.uk/education-and-learning/school-transport-and-free-school-meals/apply-for-free-school-meals/ or by visiting the school office for support with a paper copy.

Aims

The Department for Education (DfE) states clearly that the PPG must be used to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers. The DfE also states that the PPG may be spent in the following ways:

  • for the purposes of the school i.e. for the educational benefit of pupils registered at that school
  • for the benefit of pupils registered at other maintained schools or academies on community facilities e.g. services whose provision furthers any charitable purpose for the benefit of pupils at the school or their families, or people who live or work in the locality in which the school is situated.

The grant does not have to be completely spent by schools in the financial year it is paid; some or all of it may be carried forward to future financial years.

Our Commitment

  • The PPG will be clearly identifiable within our annual budget plan
  • The Head teacher, in consultation with governors and staff, will decide how the PPG is spent
  • The Head teacher and senior leaders will decide what additional provision will be made for individual and groups of children eligible for the PPG in order to raise their attainment and close the gaps between them and their peers
  • The Head teacher, in partnership with senior leaders and those responsible for additional provision linked to the PPG, will track the impact of all additional provision
  • We will seek to further develop this provision so that the attainment and progress of all children eligible for PPG continues to improve and is exemplary over time
  • The Head teacher and link governors will monitor, evaluate and review the success of the impact of the PPG
  • The Head teacher will report annually to the Governing Body on the impact of additional provision linked to the PPG on the aims stated in this strategy statement
  • From September 2016, we will publish online our strategy for how we will use and monitor the impact of the PPG

Summary

We believe that the PPG will play an important part in the educational development of the individual pupils who are entitled to it.

We will ensure that these pupils are treated equally and as favourably as others and that the additional funding is used well to address the challenges they face.

We will use the additional funding to promote the achievement and progress of all entitled pupils. Through wise use of this additional funding we are fully committed to ensuring that the individual needs of each entitled child are met.

Ultimately, as a result of the additional funding, children who are eligible for PPG will make better progress and achieve higher standards and the gap between them and their peers will be diminished.

Rationale

Monitoring

Review Date

Children are highly motivated and engaged with their learning.

Curriculum enrichment, breakfast club, after school clubs, trips, visitors and workshops – a proportion to come from PPG.

 

 

£75 school trips

£855 breakfast club

£250 after school clubs

 

£1180

When lessons are exciting and engaging, children are motivated and eager to learn. Trips, visitors and workshops can provide a unique experience that children may not experience elsewhere.

All workshops, trips and visitors are subject to a full risk assessment (class teacher) and are checked by the HT. The curriculum provision map is monitored by the leadership team and maths, English, inclusion teams through lesson observations, learning walks and book scrutiny.

Termly monitoring through staff meetings, pupil progress meetings, subject leader self-evaluation.  Pupil feedback gathered through learning walks and pupil voice interviews.

All members of staff are highly skilled and well equipped to meet the needs of all children.

We invest a significant proportion of our school budget to training.  A small proportion of the PPG will support this.

 

£200

Up-skilling teachers and teaching assistants is a priority and identified in our School Improvement Plan.

Termly monitoring by the CPD leader.

Our training plan is reviewed regularly and matches the need identified in the School Improvement Plan and staff appraisal forms.

The needs of all children eligible for PPG are met and reviewed regularly.
