Pupil Premium

What is the Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011. In 2012–13 schools were allocated a total of £1.25 billion funding for children from low-income families who were eligible for free school meals, looked after children and those from families with parents in the Armed Forces.

 

What is the impact of Pupil Premium on Schools?

OFSTED have recently undertaken a detailed research project as to how schools were spending their Pupil Premium and the impact it has had upon the education of the children for which the Pupil Premium has been targeted.

 

What were the main recommendations from the OFSTED report?

School leaders, including governing bodies, should ensure that Pupil Premium funding is not simply absorbed into mainstream budgets, but instead is carefully targeted at the designated children. They should be able to identify clearly how the money is being spent.

School leaders, including governing bodies, should evaluate their Pupil Premium spending, avoid spending it on activities that have little impact on achievement for their disadvantaged pupils, and spend it in ways known to be most effective.

Schools should continue to seek ways to encourage parents and carers to apply for free school meals where pride, stigma or changing circumstances act as barriers to its take-up.

Local authorities should ensure that there is greater consistency and transparency in the way in which the Pupil Premium is allocated to non-mainstream schools.

Ofsted should continue to evaluate the use of Pupil Premium funding by schools to ensure that they are focusing it on disadvantaged pupils and using it effectively.

Pupil Premium at Butterwick Primary School

At Butterwick Primary School it is our aim to support every child in whatever way we can. Generally this is done by providing excellent, high quality classroom learning delivered by teachers and teaching assistants. Sometimes this is supplemented by a variety of interventions to support vulnerable learners. These interventions are introduced as and when appropriate and most often in consultation with parents, teachers and other support agencies.

Our School Leadership Team and Governing Body monitor the impact of all spending and interventions and this includes funding such as the Pupil Premium.

3. BARRIERS TO FUTURE ATTAINMENT (for eligible PP including High ability)

In – school barriers

External barriers

A

Lack of resilience in learning and aspirational attitudes, particularly higher attaining children

A

High levels of social and economic deprivation with accompanying risk factors. Significant numbers of PP pupils accessing Early Help and Social Care

B

Behaviour issues for a small group of boys is having a detrimental effect on their academic progress

B

Attendance rates although much improved continue to be monitored for individuals as when they fall, school hours are reduced causing them to fall behind

 

4. OUTCOMES

 

Desired outcomes and how they will be measured

Success Criteria

A

Quality first teaching and learning across the school (including teachers and teaching assistants). The EEF work on effective Role of Teaching Assistants – school and LA/ Teaching schools Alliance.

Additional teacher in Year 2 & 6 (1 day) to support the progress of individual PP children.

 

Lesson observation, work scrutiny, pupil interview, data and learning outcomes show 95% + lessons are good or outstanding.

Teaching Assistants will be up-skilled to further enhance their support to pupils.

Communication/ feedback between Teaching Assistants and Teachers will improve.

Role expectations will be clear and focussed.

B

Staff and children will further embed a Growth Mind-set

Children will develop as more resilient learners, understanding the process of good learning.

Children will respond to feedback to ensure good progress is being made.

Pupils identified as Higher attaining will make as much progress as ‘other’ pupils.

C

Behavioural issues of individuals will be addressed

Fewer behaviour incidents recorded for these pupils on the school system (without changing standards)

Individuals have increased engagement in their learning and progress is at least ‘expected’

 

D

Increased PP family engagement to support children’s needs

The work of the Learning Mentor will ensure that identified children are picked up quickly and swift support from school or external agencies can be given. Early Help Assessments are carried out where the need arises. Partnership working will support the needs of the children more effectively so issues do not become a barrier to learning.

E

Increased attendance rates for PP children

Further reduce the number of PP that are persistent absentees. Attendance levels of PP children continue to improve so they are in line with ‘other’ pupils.

Additional pastoral support from SENCO and Learning Mentors, focusing on barriers to learning

e.g. attendance

       behaviour support

       social groups

       parent support

       academic

 

 

Children are supported in school with any worries or issues they feel they need help with.

The role of Learning Mentor also continues to support numerous families with signposting to locally available support services; providing support for the wellbeing of all family members through the EHA/ TAC and Social Care procedures. Part of their role has been to introduce social/ emotional intervention to support individuals in small groups and Homework club to support children in completing work set. Attendance is another aspect of their work. Attendance for this group in 2015/16 was 95%.

 

SENCo has been released from class teaching duties to work with children and their families who are eligible for Pupil Premium and on the SEN register. These children and parents have been supported on a day to day basis through pastoral care and educational support enabling them to access areas of the curriculum and other school activities that they may find challenging (on an academic, behaviour/emotional or physical level).

 

The impact of this work has been that children are happy to come to school, their self- esteem and confidence has improved (which in turn can impact on behaviour positively). Working with parents has improved home/school relations (again having a positive impact on the outcomes for the children). More children are helped through the Early Help Assessment route. A multi- agency approach has supported individual’s emotional well-being, providing more intensive and targeted work alongside families.

Teaching Assistant and Learning Mentor support and intervention groups

 

Foundation Stage

All children eligible for Pupil Premium made good progress with all of them achieving a good level of development in the Prime Learning Goals (Average Point Score was broadly in line with the cohort and above National figures).

 

Key Stage 1

Targeted small group phonics intervention for vulnerable groups in KS1 delivered by a teaching assistant.

Year 2 Phonics:

All of our Pupil Premium children had already met the required standard in Year 1.

Year 1 Phonics:

All the pupils eligible for Pupil Premium made at least good progress with 100% achieving the threshold for the Year 1 National tests.

 

Additionally, a higher level of Teaching Assistant support across KS1 on a day to day basis in the classroom to run flexible booster groups (including for our Higher Attaining children) had a positive impact on the end Key Stage 1 outcomes.

 

Year 2 – National Tests:


In Reading – 100% of the eligible pupils achieved at least a Level 2.

                        50% achieved Level 3.

 

In Writing –  87.5% of the eligible pupils achieved at least a Level 2
                      (1 child did not).

                       12.5% achieved Level 3 (although 37.5% achieved 2a).

 

In Maths –   87.5% of the eligible pupils achieved at least a Level 2
                     (1 child did not).

                      37.5% achieved Level 2a.

 

The child who did not achieve a Level 2 in Maths and Writing arrived during Year 1 and made good progress from their starting point.

 

Key Stage 2

Children in KS2 also received a higher level of support from Teaching Assistants to deliver interventions specific to their needs.

 In Year 3 – Those children eligible made at least good progress in

Attendance for 2014/15 was 95%.

Children are supported in school with any worries or issues they feel they need help with.

The role of Learning Mentor also continues to support numerous families with signposting to locally available support services; providing support for the wellbeing of all family members through the CAF/ TAC and Social Care procedures.

 

SENCo has been released from class teaching duties to work with children and their families who are eligible for Pupil Premium and on the SEN register. These children and parents have been supported on a day to day basis through pastoral care and educational support enabling them to access areas of the curriculum and other school activities that they may find challenging (on an academic, behaviour/emotional or physical level).

 

The impact of this work has been that children are happy to come to school, their self-esteem and confidence has improved (which in turn has impacted on behaviour positively). Working with parents has improved home/school relations (again having a positive impact on the outcomes for the children).

Creation of a new role in school of Learning Mentor, focusing on barriers to learning

e.g. attendance

       behaviour support

       social groups

       parent support

 

Attendance has improved over the past year (2013/14) compared to the last academic year (2012/13).

Areas of need were identified in the summer term of 2012/13 with a view to improve attendance levels for the following academic year.
Persistent absenteeism was identified as a significant weakness due to the lack of early intervention. Term time holidays were also impacting on attendance levels. Targeted support for families was put into place using various strategies.

Parents have started to utilise this additional support, not only for attendance but also on the pastoral side, e.g. behaviour support, social and emotional issues and links between home and school have improved because of this provision enabling school to support children better.

Analysis of attendance data shows that Whole School attendance levels at the end of the academic year 2012/13 were 93% but at the end of 2013/14 the attendance level was 96% (making them more in line with Government expectations). 

Whole school persistent absenteeism levels in 2012/13 were 8% (significantly below local and national data) but at the end of 2013/14 persistent absenteeism was below 1% (significantly better than national levels).

Pupils with 100% attendance went from 2 children in 2012/13 to 30 children in 2013/14 therefore demonstrating the positive effects of the work carried out to promote good attendance.
