Pupil Premium 2017/2018

Pupil Premium spending 2017– 2018

Background:

The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings; children who come from Services families and children who are adopted. Money will transfer to the school budget after expenditure and proof of spending. This also includes pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure).

Some of the main barriers to educational achievement faced by Pupil Premium pupils are: Self-esteem issues; language acquisition skills; availability of computers and the internet to do research or homework; occupational health issues and phonics and spelling.

School are free to spend the Pupil Premium money as they see fit. Our approach is to provide children with rich learning opportunities, memorable experiences and an opportunity to work in a small group to address any gaps in their learning or to provide additional challenge. We create a supportive and calm environment for learning and try to enhance opportunities for children so that they can overcome any barriers they may have.

We have used research to help us decide which approaches and interventions will be most successful and have used feedback from OFSTED          findings to help us make the best decisions possible.

Strategy:

Total number of pupils on role :106

 

Total numbers of pupils currently eligible for Pupil Premium Grant: 17 pupils (Pupil premium Pupils PPP, Ever 6 and Post LAC)

 

Total Pupil Premium Grant allocated to Alveley Primary school for 2017-2018: £22,500

Out Target Areas:

In order to improve progress and outcomes for Pupil Premium Pupils we need to close the gaps between this group of children and other children at our school. We have made some progress towards this but still have further to go. We also need to meet the national for all non-pupil premium children as this is the benchmark the government ask us to use.

Aims:

Accelerate pupil attainment and progress further and make learning interesting and fun by providing learning rich contexts.

Continue to ensure pupils have equal access to life enhancing experiences and provide opportunities for the children to experience new and exciting things through enrichment activities.

Provide high quality learning support in an environment, which enables children to talk about what they are finding hard and to then work towards improvement.

 

 

Current Barriers: Self-esteem issues; language acquisition skills; availability of computers and the internet to do research or homework; occupational health issues and phonics and spelling.
