Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium
Pupil Premium (PP) is a grant given to schools to identify and support pupils who have significant disadvantages so that their progress is maximised.  The government provides this grant so that schools can allocate additional support to ensure that the attainment and progress of disadvantaged pupils at least match or are rapidly approaching those of other pupils nationally and in the school.

At Littlebourne, this funding is allocated to direct academic support to ensure all pupils in receipt of the PP have the necessary support to reach at least national standards of attainment in the core areas of reading, writing and mathematics by the time they leave the school. Further PP funds are used to ensure pupils are able to play a full part in the life of the school, removing any differences in opportunity that might occur as a result of financial constraints
.

Pupil Premium Funding 2016-2017

Each child identified as PP,  Ever6 (PP in last 6 years), or CIC (child in care) has their own budget allocated by Carla Long (SENCO) and recorded by Pat Coleman (office manager).

PP,  Ever 6 and CIC receive £1300 per year each (13 of our children)             

£16,900 in total

 

Budgets are used to provide items such as;  school uniform, costs of educational visits and individual resource requirements, Reading support via Beanstalk charity, play therapy sessions and additional staffing costs. 30% of the funding (£5000) has been allocated to staff salaries to continue to provide teaching in half classes in the morning (KS2) and to fund additional TA hours.

 Pupil Premium has also been allocated to provide music and swimming lessons with external providers. Pupil Premium children are actively encouraged and supported to participate in additional activities offered both inside and outside the school. 

 

6 PP children are also on SEN register

8 PP children have emotional needs linked to current home situations

 

Impact of funding on attainment, progress and social and emotional development is tracked by;

  • collection and analysis of data six times throughout the year,
  • regular monitoring of impact through reviewing class provision maps and updating case studies (three times a year),
  • monitoring and analysis of attendance data and behaviour logs (individually as required)
  • comparison with attainment and progress of whole cohort at pupil progress discussions (six times a year)
  • discussions and information sharing with parents to ensure funding is appropriately targeted to suit individual needs (three times a year, but also on-going)
  • Age-appropriate individual pupil interviews conducted by SENCO or Head of School
