Pupil Premium Information

What is the pupil premium? Pupil premium is additional funding received by schools for each pupil from disadvantaged families or backgrounds. The funding is allocated to schools based on the number of children who meet one (or more) of the following criteria:

  • pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years
  • children where a parent serves in the armed forces
  • children who have ever been in the care of the local authority (this is known as pupil premium plus

Findings show that, as a group, children who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in time have consistently lower educational attainment than those who have never been eligible for free school meals. The pupil premium funding is used to close that gap and ensure the attainment of children from disadvantaged backgrounds is equal to that of their peers.

Pupil premium plus was introduced to allow schools to help adopted children emotionally, socially and educationally by providing specific support to raise their attainment and address their wider needs.

Whilst pupil premium funds are used to benefit these pupils, the funding is not ring-fenced and the activities and resources can benefit all children in school.

The following information explains how Long Marston CE Primary School has allocated this and the previous year’s Pupil Premium and also how we plan to spend the funding next financial year.

Due to the size of our school, the potential for identifying pupils through the publishing of any report is inevitably greater. For this reason, it is our policy to publish a basic outline of how we have spent, and plan to spend, our Pupil Premium allocations

Provision

The range of provision that may be considered includes:

  • Reducing class sizes allowing more focused and personalised teaching.
  • Providing small group work focused on overcoming gaps in learning.
  • 1-1 support.
  • Additional teaching and learning opportunities provided through learning mentors, trained TAs or external agencies.
  • Supporting families in affording school trips and extra curricular activities or clubs to ensure that all children have access to a range of experiences.
  • Purchase of additional resources.
  • Work through the pupil premium will often be aimed at accelerating progress, moving children to at least age related expectations particularly in English and Maths, or to achieve Greater Depth outcomes.
  • Pupil premium funding may be used to support and address Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs, for example in building self-esteem.
  • The school will publish information on how they have used their Pupil Premium Grant to address the issue of ‘narrowing the gap’ for socially disadvantaged pupils if there are more than 5 children in receipt of Pupil Premium

 

Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) Allocation for 2018/19 is (funding to April 2019): £3620

The PPG is targeted to overcome barriers in:

  • progress in English and Maths
  • self-esteem, well-being and emotional health
  • access to extra-curricular activities and after school clubs including homework clubs
  • affordability of chargeable activities

To address these barriers our pupil premium spending strategy is to use the funding as follows:

  • Provide small group work focused on overcoming gaps in learning (fund ATA support in class and for interventions)
  • 1-1 support including focused support to improve emotional health, well-being and self-esteem
  • Supporting families in affording school trips and extra curricular activities or clubs to ensure that all children have access to a range of experiences including homework club.
  • Providing staffing and funding for training so that all support staff can access Compass Buzz level 2 and 3 training to support emotional well being 

Our pupil premium spending strategy will next be reviewed in October 2019.

Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) Allocation for 2017/18 was: £2300

The PPG was targeted to:

  • Provide small group work focused on overcoming gaps in learning.
  • 1-1 support to provide interventions to support progress in English and Maths
  • Supporting families in affording school trips and extra curricular activities or clubs to ensure that all children have access to a range of experiences.
  • Purchase of additional resources.
  • Providing staffing and funding for training so that all support staff could access Compass Buzz level 1 training to support emotional well being 

Targeted support allowed pupils to make good progress in end of year assessments and allowed pupils to access extra-curricular activities and experiences.
