The Department for Education continues to fund the pupil premium grant (PPG) for those children whose parents currently claim Free School Meals (12%) and those families that have claimed it in the last 6 years (5%). We received £13 600 for the year 2015-16 to support these pupils to achieve their full potential academically, access extracurricular activities and provide support for the families.
This money has been spent on
- Teaching assistant time and resources to deliver mathematics, language and literacy interventions to improve pupil progress
- A contribution to music tuition, after school club costs, school trips and uniform.
- Whole school training to use ICT to support learners
Evidence shows, that of the pupils who triggered this grant:
- 70% made at least the expected progress in both English and Maths
- 90% made at least expected progress in reading
- 70% made at least the expected progress in writing
- 80% made at least the expected progress in maths
At the end of the year 100% of year 6 pupils eligible for pupil premium attained national expectations in English and Maths.
These pupils have been able to participate in music lessons, clubs and school visits enabling them to build up their confidence, extend their skills and access an enriched curriculum.
For the autumn and spring terms this year (2016-17) we will receive £ 8 800. Our summer term funding will be based on eligible pupils as identify on our 2017 census. Again this will be used to support these pupils to achieve their full potential academically, access extracurricular activities and provide support for the families.
In 2016-17 our action plan focuses on action plan
- Targeted teaching assistant support for pupil inclusion
- Staffing intervention programmes for writing and maths
- Training to support the delivery of intervention programmes
- Support for families such as trips, music lessons and uniform grants
- Resources to support the curriculum and pupil attainment and progress
The impact will be measured through
- Attendance data
- Termly progress and attainment data
- Tracking of participation in clubs and trips
The impact of this spend is measured each term and reported to governors. If you have any further questions pleased come in and ask.
