Pupil Premium.

How is the 'Pupil Premium' being used at St. Mary of the Angels?

Pupil Premium allocation.

'Pupil Premium' funding has been allocated to schools by the government to assist pupils who may be at risk of underachievement for various reasons of disadvantage. It is aimed to support them to achieve as well or better than other pupils in their class. This school is successful in raising attainment through use of Pupil Premium especially when compared to many national statistics.

2014 – 2015 (Financial Year).       2015 – 2016 (Financial Year).            2016-17 (Financial Year.)

  £47,505                                         .    £44,020                                     £44,620. (est)

2015 – 2016 – Spending of the pupil premium allocation - WITH IMPACTS.

  • Continued purchase of 'My Maths' and Teaching Assistant time at lunchtime for those who do not have access to a computer at home. Impact; addtional time is improving pupil skills - eg almost every pupil moved up 2 bookbands in a term.
  • An extra Teaching Assistant, and maintenance of the employment of others, to ensure that no child leaves the school without having their needs addressed and making sufficient progress in reading, writing and maths. Impact; pupils read daily with a TA in the mornings, or after lunch, resulting in increased confidence & fluency.
  • Purchasing of a Maths Intervention Programme, Rapid Maths, which will be run by a qualified teacher and teaching assistant together in school. Impact; helps all children involved to 'catch up' on key skills, by reinforcing concepts in a small group.
  • Purchasing of time from a Literacy Consultant to target writing as a key area of development for some children in Key Stage 2. Impact; pupils are learning new skills and practising key skills, like punctuation, with very positive results.
  • Supporting purchase of I.C.T. equipment (i-pads) to support learners in basic skills' acquisition. Impact; enabling thiose on pupil premium to use interactive learning, which engages them all, above their reading and writing on paper.
  • Supporting junior booster classes to ensure all children meet or exceed the standard in Key Stage 2 tests. Impact; pupils benefit from small group, after school classes in Y6, to secure key skills in Maths & English.
  • Some subsidy for residential visits, school trips and school enrichment days (art projects etc). Impact; pupil premium pupils can access every school trip, free of charge - including the Spanish exchange, saving them money and stress; and bringing their learning to life, on trips they may not have done before.

2016 – 2017. Projected spending of the Pupil Premium allocation.

Firstly, there are some clear barriers to educational achievement faced by our pupil premium students (according to pupils' personal circumstances)

*Home circumstances not conducive to extended learning, for personal reasons
*Lack of support from some parents historically, in helping children to read regularly, providing materials to support homework etc
*Lack of one to one over time, in terms of developing literacy (not enough stories/reading materials at home, paucity of quality language experiences etc)
*Lack of ICT in the home for revision (computer for My Maths etc)
*Home income is prohibitive in supporting school trips and enrichment experiences
*Involvement of multiagencies indicating barriers to learning through family circumstances etc.

 

What we will do;

  • Continued purchase of My Maths and Teaching Assistant time. EXPECTED IMPACT; access tro lunchtime access for ICT programmes on ipads etc, meaning homework can be completed and skills embedded.
  • Another T.A., part time. mornings and lunchtimes,to ensure that no child leaves the school without having their needs addressed and making sufficient progress in reading, writing and maths. EXPECTED IMPACT; one to one daily reading where needed ensures children can rapidly move up bookbands, or receive specialist support from further programmes to embed skills.
  • Development of maths intervention programme, for those in need, which will be run by a teaching assistant in school (supervised by teachers); and Hi 5 literacy in Y5/6. EXPECTED IMPACT; the small group scenario will enable close supervision and 'one step at a time' upskilling in English and Maths, from trained TAs, under teacher supervision.
  • More time from a Literacy Consultant to target ‘talk for writing’ as a key area of development for some children in Key Stage 2. EXPECTED IMPACT; upskilling of teachers and TAS from a quality Cheshire provider, The Literacy Company, will enable uniform, high quality approach to guided literacy, enabling all students to progress rapidly.
  • Some subsidy for residential visits, school trips and school enrichment days (musical and drama visits). EXPECTED IMPACT; all pupils can access high quality enrichment activites, such as Kingswood or the Spanish exchange, without need for a home contribution, enabling experiences the children may never have had before; and ensuring no home stress caused by lack of funds. Also free trip to all curriculum visits, meaning high quality work, arising from extremely stimulating learning experiences.
  • To subsidise specialist reading teacher for one to one support across school. EXPECTED IMPACT; over time, the Reading Recovery trained teacher has made a massive impact on our Pupil Premium children, with virtually all pupils being able to make rapid progress in KS1; and ensuring that every child can leave this school, being able to read and understand a quality authored paperback reading book, at the end of Y6.
