Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium 2016-2017

At Eglinton Primary School, we are committed to securing the best outcomes for all our children. As a school we will challenge individual children to achieve the highest levels of achievement regardless of prior attainment or personal circumstances. Pupil Premium funding is a key resource for ensuring the realisation of these aspirations for some children. The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is funding provided to schools that is in addition to the funding based on factors such as pupil numbers. It is allocated according to the number of children on roll who are eligible for free school meals (FSM), an allocation for each child who has been "Looked After" (in the care of the local authority) and for children from families with parents in the Armed Forces. In 2012, funding was extended to include children who have been eligible for free school meals within the past 6 years (Ever 6).

The Pupil Premium was initially introduced in April 2011 when schools received an additional £488 for each of their children who were eligible for free school meals. In April 2012 this was increased to £623, and a further increase was issued for the financial year 2013 – 2014 which was then worth £900 per eligible child. The allocation of funding for children of service personnel was £250. In the financial year 2014-2015, the Government increased the Pupil Premium allowance to £1,320 per child receiving Free School Meals and to £1,900 for ‘Looked After’ children. The funding allocated for the children of service personnel has increased to £300 per child.

The DfE has given schools the freedom to use the Pupil Premium funding as they see fit, based upon their knowledge of children’s needs.

‘It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium funding is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made.’

However, schools are held to account through performance tables which include data on:

  • the attainment and progress of all children who attract the funding and in particular, the attainment of higher achievers who attract the funding
  • the progress made by these children, narrowing the gap in attainment between disadvantaged children and their peers and in particular the higher achievers.

Pupil Premium should be used to make enhanced impact on children by ensuring that 'catch up' programmes and programmes to challenge high achievers are tailored to individual needs.

We use Pupil Premium to implement:

  • direct interventions (1:1 or group work) to improve progress and attainment
  • staff development to improve targeted teaching
  • specific interventions to improve the context for learning for individuals and groups (e.g. tutoring)
  • specific resources that will impact on individuals and groups e.g. iPads

PP children achieved above National outcomes in all areas, significantly so in Reading and Writing. The gaps have significantly closed between them and their peers in the targeted areas of Understanding, Speaking and Shape, space and measures.  Of this PP cohort, 25% also have significant special educational needs - these children made considerable progress from their starting points. The gaps are continuing to close in Year 1 with continued, targeted support.

Year 1 Phonics

83% of PP children achieved expected levels in Phonics Screening Test, continuing to narrow the gap between them and their peers. Outcomes were above National and a significant improvement on past performance (71%). The gaps are rapidly closing.

Year 2 Phonics Retakes

100% of PP children passed the Phonics Screening Retakes in Year 2, a significant improvement on past performance (87%)

KS1 Teacher Assessments (SATS)
A significant number of children met and/or exceeded their projected targets in all areas, especially so at GD Writing, SPAG and Maths. The outcomes for PP children were above National outcomes in all areas and the gaps between PP and NPP are rapidly closing.

KS2 SATS

Greater Depth (GD)

A significant number of children met/exceeded school targets (T)and national outcomes in SPAG 41% (T 32% N: 27%) and in Writing 28% (T: 28% N: 18%) and were above national in Maths 22% (N 20%). They performed just below National in RWM (6% N7%) due to the major changes to the Reading Test-this was a national picture. Consequently, they achieved below expectations in Reading 9% (T: 32% N23%) which is a school and national focus for 2015.16

 AE+ (At Expected and above)

All children met/exceeded their targets and National outcomes in Writing 84% (T: 85 N 79%), Maths 88% (T88% N75%) and were above National outcomes for RWM 63% (N60%) They achieved below expectations for R 66% (T: 85% N 71%) for reasons outlined above.

Apart from the Reading outcomes, there was significant improvement on past performance as the gaps between PP children and NPP continue to close.

 

Impact on Pupil Premium children who received Behavioural/Mentoring and Home School support at KS2.

58% of PP children had the above support. Of this group, 32% had significant SEND, including 5% with an EHCP.

These children made significant progress from their starting point as the Progress data shows, with 68% achieving accelerated progress in all areas. 16% achieved GD in Writing, just 2% below National and 26% in Maths which was above National. These children achieved just 1% below National for Maths and 2% below for RWM. Their disposition and attitudes also improved considerably as a lot of work was done on metacognition, both with staff and children, hence the children’s motivation and drive improved as they understand their strengths and challenges and what they needed to do to continue that positive trajectory. This is a life skill which will serve them well through secondary school and beyond. The engagement of the children’s families with the school also improved considerably, both from the positive proactivity of the school’s offer of personalised support and the more positive attitude of their children to school alongside the progress they continually made throughout the year.

SEND children also made very good progress, given their starting points. There were four children with significant speech and language difficulties, one with Autism and one with an EHCP for complex needs. These children became a lot more independent and proactive due to the work done as outlined above which not only resulted in their making good progress, but in having well established personal skills in preparation for secondary school and beyond.
