Pupil Premium Funding
To close the disadvantage gap by addressing inequalities and raising the attainment of those pupils in low-income families.
What do we expect to see?
Targeted additional support strategies which result in every pupil, however financially disadvantaged, being able to have full access to our curriculum and all our extra-curricular experiences. All pupils in the target group who are currently underperforming because of the impact of their disadvantaged background will make improved progress leading to narrowing of any attainment gaps
Evaluation of Present Situation
The Government introduced the Pupil Premium as a way of reducing the inequalities experienced by disadvantaged pupils up to the age of 16. This funding (which is currently £1,300 per pupil) is given to schools based on the numbers of pupils in receipt of free School meals (FSM) at present and as entered onto the January census. This figure also includes any pupil who has been in receipt of FSM in the previous six years of their schooling, whether or not they are currently entitled.
Barrow Primary School’s pupil premium grant is £30,100 for 2016/17. There are currently 24 pupils eligible for Pupil Premium funding, 16% of the total number of children in school. In order to ensure all pupils (including FSM) make accelerated progress we have identified and implemented robust and effective support and intervention currently in place which will be enhanced by making reference to the performance by FSM pupils and targeting support. Monitoring of and planning for our pupil premium spend will be led and overseen by the Pupil Premium Governor and Team.
Tracking and Intervention
The progress and achievement of all pupils is monitored at key points in the academic year. Any pupil (FSM or not) who is in need of intervention is identified and the necessary support is put in place. This is led by the SLT and SENCo through regular meetings and discussions.
Resources and staffing
The contribution from Pupil Premium will:
- Support quality first teaching across the school
- Provide a range of teaching support and intervention programs to help children reach their full potential in Literacy and Numeracy
- Enable disadvantages pupils to access the school’s extra curricular provision
