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.
  • Underachieving children are contacted from school, parents engaged and support accepted and progress rates improve
  • Participation in school extra-curricular activities, clubs, trips, sport etc. is monitored and matches school averages

Strategies showing impact to date:

  • Additional teacher in year 6 to support specific pupil premium, pupil groups
  • Additional teacher in EYFS to support specific pupil premium, pupil groups
  • Breakfast club supporting parents of pupil premium children
  • Math’s club supporting parents of pupil premium children with no internet access at home
  • Additional teaching assistants in KS1 to support reading

Plans for future funding include:

 

  • Explore feasibility of reducing class sizes in EYFS, KS1 and KS2
  • Audit impact of current plan/ spend on PPP outcomes and adjust/ revise plan as appropriate.
  • Adopt good practice from local/ national initiatives to ensure maximum impact from our PPP spend.

Tracking and intervention:

 

The progress and achievement of all pupils is monitored half termly and termly. Any pupil who is need of intervention is identified and the necessary support is put in place. This is led by the Head of School, the SLT and the leader for SEND. All staff are fully aware of pupils in their class and any specific needs the pupils may have. At Pupil Progress meetings all staff are held to account for the progress of all pupils and especially ‘Diminishing the Difference’ between non FSM pupils and FSM pupils.

Resources and staffing:

 

The contribution from pupil premium will provide a range of intervention programmes to help children reach their full potential in Literacy and Numeracy. E.g.; Read Write Inc, breakfast club, after school clubs, sports coach, Mathletics.
