Pupil Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.

The Pupil Premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. This budget also includes provision for children who have been eligible for free school meals in the past 6 years (FSM 'Ever 6').

Schools are free to spend Pupil Premium as they see fit.  For example, it can be used for additional support in classes, for Early Intervention Support Worker time, for clubs at school or recommended by the school.  However we are held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils from disadvantaged families.  We are required to publish online information about how we have used the Pupil Premium.  This will ensure that parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of pupils covered by Pupil Premium and the extra support that they receive.

Performance of disadvantaged pupils in Foundation Stage

In 2015, 45% of disadvantaged children achieved a good level of development. This compares with 64% of non-disadvantaged and shows a gap of 19 percentage points. At Cheam Park Farm Infants School 80% of the disadvantaged children, as indicated by those registered as Pupil Premium children, achieved a good level of development compared with 69% of the whole year group. The disadvantaged children are achieving well, if not better than the whole cohort. However, the sample was very small with only 5 children in this cohort.

Summary of PPG spending 2014/15

Principles in spending PPG:

  • We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils
  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils (pupil premium) are adequately assessed and addressed
  • We recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered as pupil premium. We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.
  • Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority groups or individuals. Limited funding and resources means that not all pupil premium children will be in receipt of interventions at one time

 

Objectives in spending PPG

  1. To ensure all children are challenged to achieve in reading, writing and mathematics.
  2. To close the attainment gap between boys and girls.
  3. To support children’s well-being and progress through working with families and giving guidance on a range of areas from attendance, routine, behaviour and eating issues.
  4. To support children’s overall development, self-confidence and self-esteem and to offer new and challenging experiences.
  5. To improve attendance.

Summary of spending and actions taken:

  1. Employed and trained TAs to support differentiated groups.
  2. Employed a Family Support Worker for ½ a day a week; this person is shared across local schools and provides parenting support groups.
  3. Funded extra-curricular activities including tennis, martial arts, holiday club, football, brownies, street dance, wake up and shake up. This is also supported through individual letting agreements.
  4. Funded Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning (SEAL) and Emotional Literacy Support (ELSA)
  5. Funded ‘Be there Bear’ Attendance Initiative.

Outcomes to date:

  1. The impact of funding small group differentiated support was evidenced in good achievement in Key Stage 1, in reading, writing and mathematics for disadvantaged children, all (Average Point Scores) APS above national figures.
  2. The Family Support Worker provided advice and support for families.  The support included a range of parenting behaviour techniques.
  3. The impact of providing access to extra-curricular activities is evident in achievements and increased confidence and self-esteem.
  4. We continue to ensure children have access to school counselling type sessions to support social skills and interactions.
  5. Attendance remains consistently at 96% resulting in good attainment.
