Cherry Burton CE Primary School

Pupil Premium Grant funding plan

2018 - 19

The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is an amount of money allocated by the Government to schools for:

  • Children of statutory school age from low income families who are known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM)

  • Children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months

  • Children whose parents are currently working in the armed forces

 

The DFE offer the following guidance on how the Pupil Premium is to be spent:
“In most cases the Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility...[Schools] will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low income families.”

 

The barriers for some pupils are:

Emotional – low self-esteem lined to low attainment. This also impacts on the pupil’s enjoyment of school life and therefor participation in the school day.

Practical – cost of out of school clubs, music lessons and other additional school events.

Achievement – Low starting levels (baselines) for these pupils affects learning across the whole curriculum.

 

In 2018 – 19, the school’s Pupil Premium Grant allocation is £ 26,840

Provision

Rationale

Measure of Impact

Emotional

  • Establish ELSA group for children to access

  • Develop morning check ups to ensure all children are ready to learn at the start of the day

  • Booster support for PP children (TA)

  • Parental support for an effective home / school transition

It is not possible to raise attainment and progress for pupils who have barriers to their learning. Removing these barriers ensure children are ready and able to learn.

Parental engagement is vital to accelerate progress and attainment

Sutton Trust data:

Social/emotional aspects of learning = average impact +4 mths

Moderate impact for low cost

Uptake and output at ELSA sessions

Pupil questionnaire demonstrates increased pupil self esteem

Parent questionnaire

Practical

  • Ability to subsidise out of school clubs, music tuition and other additional school events (upon request)

  • Ensure parents know pathways to access support (nurturing group)

  • Enrichment opportunities to provide what children would not necessarily experience in everyday life

 

Alternative learning activities and environments and activities develop confidence within pupils which in turn is reflected in their attitudes to learning

Sutton Trust data:

Sports participation = low impact fpr moderate costs +2mths

Arts participation = low impact for low cost +2mths

Outdoor learning = moderate impact for moderate costs +4mths

 

Pupil participation in events

Pupil questionnaire demonstrates increased pupil self esteem, friendship groups

Achievement

  • Identified children supported in class as necessary

  • SENDCo to identify gaps in learning and allocate specific interventions

  • SENDCo specific time to engage with parents / agencies to facilitate the most appropriate support

  • TAs to regularly withdraw children to offer extra support (academic & emotional)

  • Booster support provided to prepare children for statutory testing

 

In order to access the curriculum, pupils need good basic skills and a firm foundation on which to build.

Sutton Trust data:

Small group tuition = average impact +4 mths

Moderate impact for moderate cost

Collaborative learning (with peers) = moderate impact for low costs +5mths

 

Diminishing the difference in attainment between peers

Ensuring good or better progress from all starting points, compared with peers

Opportunities for children to set targets, self-assess and review learning

Progress is seen through TSP reviews

Pupil Premium Allocation Statement 2017 / 2018 - Evaluation

 

At Cherry Burton School we aim to make sure that every pupil receives high quality teaching and learning experiences that are tailored to meet their individual needs.

We are keenly aware that any pupil who is vulnerable will benefit from additional support and use the Pupil Premium Grant to that end. We recognise that not all pupils who are in receipt of free meals are socially disadvantaged, and, equally, recognise that some pupils who do not qualify for free meals may well be vulnerable or disadvantaged. To this end, the school allocates its Pupil Premium Grant to supporting any pupil, or group of pupils, who will benefit from additional provision or support.
