Allocation and planned expenditure 2016/2017
Principles for funding allocation:-
*We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils
*We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups. This specifically includes that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are addressed
*In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who are eligible for free school meals (or have been eligible in the last 6 years) are socially disadvantaged
*We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We therefore allocate Pupil Premium Funding to support any pupil or groups that the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.
Pupil Premium Funding will be allocated following an annual needs analysis which will identify priority classes and groups.
Total Allocation for 2016/2017 = £27,720.00
Pupil Premium Funding is planned to be spent on:-
*Young Mind Counselling Services (once a fortnight)
*SENSS additional support
*Educational Trips and Activities
*Forest Schools and Nurture Provision throughout the year
*Literacy and Numeracy Interventions for 4 afternoons per week (One TA)
*Teaching Assistant Support for all classes (5 mornings per week for the whole year)
Summary of Impact upon 2015/2016 Pupil Premium
*25 children had access to Young Mind Counselling Services over the year along with 10 families.
*18 children received Nurture throughout the year. This helped them mentally and socially.
*Educational Trips and Activities were subsidised for those children in receipt of Pupil Premium.
*Each class in the school had regular access to Forest Schools Provision. Each of our children in receipt of Pupil Premium had Forest Schools for at least 3 sessions each term. This resulted in behaviour around school improving dramatically. Only 6 red cards were issued throughout the whole year. Any children who had received a ‘yellow’ card had access to a regular nurture session of 15 minutes to enable them to reflect upon their behaviour and to discuss any problems or issues they had.
In July 2016, we had 4 children in our Year 6 class in receipt of Pupil Premium.
*100% of disadvantaged children reached the ‘expected’ level in Reading. 25% of these reached the ‘high level’.
*100% of disadvantaged children reached the ‘expected’ level in Writing.
*75% of disadvantaged children reached the ‘expected’ level in Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling. 25% of these reached the ‘high level’.
*100% of disadvantaged children reached the ‘expected’ level in Maths. 50% of these reached the ‘high level’.
