What is Pupil Premium?

 

The Pupil Premium is additional funding to help schools close the attainment gap between children from low income families and other disadvantaged families and their peers. If a child has been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point over the past 6 years or has been continuously looked after for at least 6 months (LAC) the school receives an amount per head within their budget. This has risen each year to the current amount of £1320 per pupil.

 

Turves Green Primary School is committed to ensuring maximum progress for all groups of children and strives to close any gaps. At Turves Green Primary we actively promote equality of opportunity for all staff, governors, pupils and parents, creating a community where all can succeed.

We have a clear, strategic approach to the use of Pupil Premium funding and plans are integrated into wider school support and improvement systems. These are monitored and evaluated robustly and on a regular basis. In depth analysis ensures that the correct support and strategies are identified to maximise progress of all pupils.

Strong leadership systems ensure that Pupil Premium funding has the necessary impact. This includes one identified governor having responsibility for Pupil Premium, the Head of School leading the development plan and a coordinated strategic leadership approach to implementing plans. All matters relating to the Pupil Premium are reported back to the Governors ensuring that the school is held to account for the impact of spending.

Key Priority:

 

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 student, however financially disadvantaged, being able to have full access to our curriculum and all our extra – curricular experiences. All students in the target group who are currently underperforming because of the impact of their disadvantaged background will make improved progress leading to the narrowing of any attainment gaps.
  • Attainment across the school is in line with the national average for all groups of pupils
  • ‘Diminishing the Difference’ between Free School Meals and non-Free School Meals pupils within school.
  • Parents of underachieving children are contacted by school, parents engaged and support accepted and progress rates improve
  • Participation in school extra-curricular activities, clubs, trips, sport etc.

Pupil premium Review 2017/18

·         The progress of disadvantaged children in EYFS in maths remains above the national average for all children and has done so for each of the last 2 years.

·         The percentage of children achieving a good level of development in EYFS has increased significantly in 2018 based on 2017 data. (64% 2017 to 79% in 2018)

·         The achievement gap in EYFS has not only closed but has reversed with PP children doing better than their non-disadvantaged peers. (79% as compared to 74%)

·         The % of disadvantaged children who achieved the standard in phonics has increased significantly in 2018 compared to 2017. (77% in 2017- 88% in 2018 and is above the national average for all children.

·         The % of disadvantaged children who achieved the expected standard in KS1 in reading has been above the national average for all children for the past 2 years. (79% school compared to 75% nationally 2018)

·         The % of disadvantaged children who achieved greater depth in reading in KS1 has improved significantly in 2018 as compared to 2017 data. An increase of 13%

·         The % of disadvantaged children who achieved the expected grade in KS1 writing has improved by 4% since 2017.

The % of children who achieved expected in KS1 maths has improved significantly since 2017. An increase of 15% from 60% in 2017 to 75% in 2018.

·         The percentage of children who achieved the expected standard in all 3 subjects at the end of key stage 2 is broadly in line with national average.

·        161 disadvantaged children received blue cards in the Autumn Term of 2017-2018.  This number reduced to 59 children by the Summer Term.

·         All of the children who agreed to take part in the residential trip did so and were exposed to life experiences that they would not normally be involved in. 45% of those who attended were eligible for the pupil premium grant.  The children identified what a fantastic time they had and that they had learnt about themselves and what they were capable of achieving.

·         Homework clubs have had limited support.  Morning sessions were better attended. A small minority attended.  A number of PPP targeted for free breakfast club provision, however, this was only sporadically attended and for a limited time.  It is difficult to attribute any benefits to this initiative.
