Pupil Premium

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

 

The Pupil Premium (PP) is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children. Pupil Premium provides schools with funding to challenge underachievement by setting up additional support for our most vulnerable children. The intended effect of this funding is to accelerate progress and raise attainment in schools.

Our Key Stage 2 test scores are an area to celebrate as they exceed national expectations and LA figures at ARE in all subject areas. Attainment significantly exceeds the national figures in EGPS, writing and maths. Additionally, significant progress is seen in writing and maths. Key Stage 2 test scores exceed national expectations and LA figures at the ‘Higher Standard’ in all subject areas, and all are improvements on in-school figures from 2016. The attainment of Pupil Premium pupils in EGPS and maths (83% at ARE) exceeds national others. All scaled score averages were above national.

 

Key Areas for Development

 

  • Overall percentage at ‘ARE’ in reading, to bring results closer to outcomes in maths, writing and EGPS.
  • Close the attainment gap between boys and girls
  • Progress within reading (currently ‘in line’ with national), to make a significant improvement as in writing and maths.
  • Maintaining progress in light of the new curriculum outcomes.
  • Remain focussed on provision for the vulnerable groups to ensure a continued narrowing of gaps, especially within reading.
  • Focus on specific groups of boys to ensure their attainment and progress is in line with their peers, as this is a national area of development.

 

Key Actions

 

  • 45 minute, daily intervention in year 3 focussed on early reading skills to ensure that children have mastered the basics in KS2           
  • Four sessions a week focussed purely on reading comprehension, focussing on vocab, retrieval and inference, to prepare children for the reading SAT in 2017 in Year 6.
  • After school writing intervention groups led by teachers across KS2. 
  • After school reading interventions led by teachers across KS2
  • Continued writing focus – ‘Writing Skills’ books maintained in KS2.
  • Use of high quality texts to teach reading and writing throughout KS2.
  • Specific SIP focus in reading with the aim of improving standards at ARE the end of KS2.
  • Ensure there is a rigid cycle of, assess – analyse – plan – teach – review to ensure there is focussed teaching around identified gaps.
  • Implementation of the FFT Reading scheme to support high quality teaching of reading in KS2
  • Introduction of whole class teaching of reading in Y5/6
