Strategy

Our aim is to ensure that every child in our school is able to fulfil their potential regardless of their background. As such, Pupil Premium expenditure is targeted at specific activities for specific groups or individuals that we believe will ameliorate the life chances of those individuals or groups. Once an activity has been in place for enough time to be able to assess its impact (the length of time will differ dependent upon the activity), the Leadership Team will recommend to Governors whether to continue the activity or not. Different activities will be right for different times and for different individuals or groups.

 

Principles

We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all the pupils.

We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups. This includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed.

We reserve the right to allocate pupil premium funding to support any pupil or group of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.

Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority individuals. Not all children on the Ever6 register will be in receipt of pupil premium interventions at any one time. We aim for all children on the Ever6 register to have equality of access over time. This includes more able children as well as children with learning needs who are on the Ever6 register. All activities carried out using pupil premium money will be aimed at accelerating children’s progress either directly (through learning interventions) or indirectly (through activities designed to promote self-esteem, team work skills etc).

 

Provision

Impact is most clearly measured during Pupil Progress meetings (these take place in November, February and June) when each pupil is discussed and progress recorded. The cumulative progress of each child gives an Average Point Score for each year group (or cohort). Soft data such as improvements in self-esteem, attitude and well-being, are also recorded during Pupil Progress meetings.

Pupil Premium Data

 

We use Chris Quigley’s Depth of Learning index to assess children. Pupil Progress meetings are held three times per year. Each child is discussed individually and assessments made on progress and attainment in Reading, Writing, Maths and Science.  The following figures show the percentage of certain groups in each cohort who are attaining national curriculum expectations (at the end of Y2, Y4 and Y6) or who are on the way to so doing (at the end of Y1, Y3 and Y5). So, children in Years 1, 3 & 5 are being judged against end of Y2, 4 & 6 expectations hence the lower percentages. Health warning – some of the groups are very small!
