Tudor Primary School

Pupil Premium

Projected Total Pupil Premium Funding April 2017/2018

 

The school has allocated its funding based on 134 children who are entitled to Pupil premium funding. Pupil Premium funding is awarded for pupils who have received Free School Meals in the past six years and for children in care or the children of Armed Forces personnel. Amount per pupil - £1320 x 134 = £176,880

When making decisions about using pupil premium funding it was important to consider the context of the school and the subsequent challenges faced by our proportion of pupil premium children.

Common challenges for pupil premium children at Tudor Primary include the following: overcrowded, temporary and unstable housing,   high mobility, digital access challenges,, lack of  space and resources to study  at home and  or play safely outside, EAL ,attendance  and punctuality issues.. The school recognises that whilst a significant number of our pupils are not eligible for recourse to public funds due to immigration and benefit reasons they would otherwise be considered as meeting the criteria of “disadvantage”.

 

The School’s Pupil Premium Grant (PPG)  strategy for  April 2017-April 2018   identifies the following aims to overcome barriers to educational achievement  for our pupils eligible for Pupil Premium funding:

  • To accelerate the progress and improve the attainment of pupils eligible for Pupil premium in order to narrow any gap between non Pupil Premium pupils in school and nationally.
  • To continue the progress made in improving writing and to narrow the gap for PPG pupils in Reading and Maths.
  • To improve access to learning opportunities including  to books, trips  and workshops
  • To address the barriers of social, emotional and mental health needs which impact on learning, behaviour, confidence and resilience
  •  To address low levels of parental engagement
  • To address the  need to develop parental support skills  and confidence
To address the barriers of low attendance, punctuality and disrupted education amongst PPG pupils

Objectives and Principles

Our key objective in using the Pupil Premium Fund (PPF) is to narrow the gap between pupil groups and ensure that each child maximizes their potential. Through quality first teaching and targeted interventions we are working to eliminate barriers to learning and progress. For pupils who start school with low attainment on entry, our aim is to ensure that they make accelerated progress in order to reach age related expectations as they move through the school. Also to ensure that we cater for all academic abilities, including challenging high attaining pupil premium (PP) pupils, we analyse our data comprehensively, in order to make decisions relating to pupil premium funding. We have nominated members of the SLT team to lead and drive pupil premium as well as sharing information regularly with Governors.

 

Further to this we outlined key principles which we then focused on in order to successfully narrow the gap and maximise the impact of our pupil premium spending.

 

The ethos of the school is built upon the belief that all staff believe in all pupils and there are no excuses made for under-performance. We have high expectations and aspirations for all our pupils and encourage them to take a full and active part in all that we offer. We value diversity, promote curiosity and inspire excellence.

 

Analysing Data- 
We ensure that all staff are involved in the analysis of data so that they are fully aware of strengths and weaknesses across the school (e.g. pupil progress meetings).

 

Identification of pupils - We ensure that:

  • ALL teaching staff are invlved in analysis of data and identification of 
pupils- this is dne through pupil progress meetings and CPD

o      ALL staff are aware of who pupil premium and vulnerable pupils are

 

  • ALL pupil premium pupils benefit frm the funding, not just those who are underperforming e.g. clubs
    • Underachievement at all levels is targeted (nt just lower attaining pupils)

 

Improving day to day teaching - We continue to ensure that all pupils across the school receive good teaching achieved by using our SLT to:

 

    1. Set high exectations
    • Address any within-schol variance
    • Share god practice within the school
    • Prvide high quality CPD

 

Increasing learning time -We maximise the time pupils have to “catch up” through:

    1. Imroving attendance and punctuality

o      Providing intervention

 

Individualising support- 
We ensure that the additional support we provide is effective by:

    • Loking at the individual needs of each child and identifying their barriers to learning
    • Ensuring additinal support staff and class teachers communicate regularly
    • Tailring interventions to the needs of the child
    • Recognising and building on pupils’ strengths to further boost confidence
