Below is information about how we used our Pupil Premium Grant in narrative form.

Indicative amount for Academic Year 2016/17  £30,300

Ever 6 Free School Meal eligibility Primary:                         April 2016- 10 pupils,      September 2016 – 7 pupils

Post LAC, Adopted from care or Special Guardianship:     April 2016-9 pupils,         September 2016 – 5 pupils

Main barriers faced by disadvantaged pupils during financial year 2016/17

  • Need for a sensory curriculum and sensory breaks to ensure effective learning time
  • Support due to attachment difficulties- advice gained during monthly Educational Psychologist visits
  • Educational Psychologist support and advice regarding positive behavioural and engagement strategies
  • Need for nurture groups to ensure a positive start to the school day
  • School Inclusion Manager and Educational Psychologist required to assess pupil to gain an understanding of their barriers to learning supporting staff in ensuring most effective teaching and learning strategies.

Academic Year 2016/17 our Pupil Premium Grant Totals £30,300.

This is being used for

  • additional Teaching Assistant support to release teachers to work with pupils (29 hrs pw) £16900
  • staffing (3 hrs p w) and funding nurture groups £1900+ £280 for provisions
  • Inclusion manager time, resources and shine therapy support £1000
  • funding and support funding for trips and visits for eligible children £500
  • contribution towards services from our children’s centre £3000
  • monthly visits from an Educational Psychologist (full day)£6720

It was felt that the Educational Psychologist time paid for in 2015/16 was much more effective than the counselling sessions. It was therefore decided that counselling sessions would not be procured in 2016/17 and the amount of Educational Psychologist time would be doubled to full days.

Pupils who are not eligible for Pupils Premium grant are also allowed to join the nurture groups that we provide as we feel that this is utilised on a needs basis and is regularly reviewed.

Our Educational Psychologist is also used for advice regarding non-pupil premium grant pupils and additional Education Psychologist time is bought in for other SEN pupils as required. No child would be excluded from access to this provision on the ground of social background.

Academic Year 2015/16 our Pupil Premium Grant Totals £30,300.

This was used for

  • additional Teaching Assistant support to release teachers to work with pupils (33 hrs pw) £19ooo
  • staffing and funding nurture groups £1700+ £200 for provisions
  • Inclusion manager time, resources and shine therapy support £1000
  • funding and support funding for trips and visits for eligible children £500
  • contribution towards services from our children’s centre £3000
  • access to a counsellor to support pupils £1500
  • monthly visits from an Educational Psychologist (half day)£3360

Impact of 2015/16 funding

Our Previously LAC/Special Guardianship pupils performed well at the end of KS2 Test (July2016)

Their progress cores were as follows: Reading +4.6, Writing +3.87, Maths +4.7

These results show that the emotional and academic support given to these children during their time with us enabled them to gain progress in the Top 5% of pupils nationally when compared with all children from similar academic starting points.

Progress for Ever 6 pupils at the end of KS2 Test (July2016) – there were no such pupils in this cohort

Progress for Previously LAC/Special Guardianship across the school show that pupils make good progress or better. Progress of pupils is tracked through percentage from term to term (monitored by SLT) and  Strides Progress from one end of year to the next. 3 strides progress is considered good progress- a full year’s progress withing the new curriculum. The average strides progress for pupils in Y1-5 are as follows: Reading 3.7,  Writing 3.5, Maths 3.5

Progress for Ever 6 pupils across the school Y1-5 show that during the academic year 2015/16 children generally made good progress. The average strides progress for this group within school: Reading 3.2, Writing 2.8, Maths 3.0. Some children withing this group have multiple disadvantage i.e. Ever 6 and SEN
