Pupil Premium

The Government introduced the Pupil Premium Grant in April 2011. This grant, which is additional to main school funding, is seen by the government as the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) or from Service families and their peers, by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable. Schools can decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.

Teaching Assistants to lead Intervention groups or give in class   support.                             

£ 15,392

Teaching Assistants have led a number of interventions through the   year to support Pupil Premium Children. They have also supported children when   they have misunderstood a concept they have been taught and need some extra   teaching input.  For impact see progress below.

First Class@maths intervention support for pupil premium children in   Y3


A group of Pupil Premium children took part in a maths intervention   specifically focussed on improving maths skills of children in Y3. This   intervention took place three times a week. Through the raising of confidence   in basic maths skills the children achieved between 60 and 75% of the objectives for Maths in Y3.

`Achievement For All’ project. Supporting parents in helping their   children make progress.


A number of the Pupil Premium children have been chosen to be part of   the ‘Achievement for All’ project. The Pupil Premium money has been used to   release staff to have longer parents meetings with parents and to agree   targets. This has had a positive impact on the children and their progress.  It has also had a very positive impact on parental engagement with very   positive feedback from parents on the whole project.

Phonics support in Y1 for pupil premium children


This intervention targeted two pupil premium children who were   struggling with their phonics which had a particular impact on their reading. Both children from starting lower than the other children in the class passed   their phonics screening test and were working at the expected level for their year group.

Home-School link worker


The schools Home-School link worker left her job at Christmas. During   the Autumn term she worked with a number of pupil premium families supporting   them with a range of issues including behaviour and supporting children to attend school.

Forces Club


Forces club has been run by a member of staff for one lunch time a   week. This has given the children time to talk to each other about their   experiences and enabled them to work together to improve the school environment.

Y4 and Y6 Maths Booster classes


A teacher has been running booster classes with Y4 and 6 this year.   This has enabled children to work individually and in small groups on   concepts they have struggled with. The impact of this has meant children have   achieved a higher number of objectives than they would have otherwise have   done. In Y4 and Y6 55% of the Pupil Premium children have reached the expected standard in maths this year.

Pupil Tracking Software


This has been used to track the pupil premium children and to put in place interventions that will support these children.

Specialist maths software


This has been used to target maths objectives in KS1. All but two children ended the year working on or above the expected level for their year group.

Resilience training at Carlton Lodge outdoor Centre.


Pupil Premium children spent a day at an outdoor centre doing   activities where they had to push themselves to do challenging activities   that were out of their comfort zone. It was great to see their resilience with these activities.
