Pupil Premium Allocation 2016-17


Main Barriers faced by eligible pupils

Our school is located in an area of high social deprivation and we have a large number of children entitled to Pupil Premium. We have an extremely high percentage of children eligible for Free School Meals - 55% (ever 6 data) compared to 26.2% nationally (Highest quintile). 19% of pupils are supported at Sen Support or by a Statement of Special Educational Needs / Education Health Care plan (Highest quintile). 86% of pupils do not have English as their first language and up to 40 languages are spoken by pupils. Despite such complex challenges, staff are committed to ensuring that all pupils are able to reach their full potential. We use our Pupil Premium allocation to identify individual barriers and place measures in place to ensure gaps between groups diminish.

Pupil premium funding is used extremely well, for example to provide additional academic support for disadvantaged pupils, to promote their confidence, sporting and musical achievement, and to help pupils settle into school life. This expenditure makes a huge difference to eligible pupils’ learning with disadvantaged pupils typically making good, and often rapid, progress. They attain at least as well as their peers, and increasingly closer to that of other pupils nationally. (Ofsted 2015)

Impact of Pupil Premium Spending 2016 - 2017

The school’s evaluation of its own performance is extremely thorough. Tracking of progress over time for each pupil is rigorous, enabling us to quickly identify any dips and develop strategies and interventions to ensure improvement.

In 2016-17, we will use a range of data to analyse impact of spending:

  • Current Attainment and Progress Data
  • Entry data
  • End of KS2 data
  • Analysis of value added / baseline data / outcomes from Local Authority
  • Intervention analysis
  • Outcomes of observations, work analysis, learning walks, target setting, moderation, higher order questioning
  • Stakeholder feedback i.e. Achievement for All, Governors, Link Officer, LA
  • Pupil / Parent feedback
