Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium spend and planned expenditure for 18/19

Inmans Primary School Pupil Premium Strategy Report

The pupil premium is allocated to schools for:Children of statutory school age from low-income families who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years (FSM); Children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months; Children whose parents are currently working in the armed forces.

PPG provides funding for two policies:

  • Raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and closing the gap with their peers;
  • Supporting children and young people with parents in the regular armed forces

The PPG per pupil for 2017-2018 was as follows:

Disadvantaged pupils

Pupil Premium per pupil

Pupil in Year Groups EYFS to Y6 as Ever 6 FSM

£1320

Looked After Children (LAC

£1900

Service children

 

Pupils in Year Groups EYFS to 6 recorded as Ever 4 Service Child or in receipt of a child pension from the Ministry of Defence.

£300

 

The DFE offer the following guidance:

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 FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.

However they also state that:

Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families. 

The purpose of this report is to inform parents, carers and governors how much pupil premium the school received for 2017-18, how it was spent and the impact that it had in pupils’ achievement. The report also explains how the pupil premium for 2018 – 2019 will be used.

The current percentage of pupils classed as Ever 6 for FSM is 11.4%, well below the national average. This number has dropped over the last few years due to the national decision for pupils in EYFS and KS1 to have FSM. This means very less families need to register to become FSM despite incentives introduced by the school. Consequently, the school receives a smaller amount of deprivation funding than most schools nationally.

Many more pupils in the school come from low-income backgrounds and although not eligible for the pupil premium some aspects of the school spend reflects the need for these pupils also.

All PP pupils had an individual intervention plan designed for them.

 

Y1 interventions based on phonics and reading and there are pleasing results which stand the children in a strong position for achieving ARE in Y2 reading. 

 

Y2 – the progress made by the pupils is not reflected in the ARE %. All pupils made good progress from starting point and over the KS2 with interventions will make exceed progress.

 

Y6 progress scores in writing are distorted due to a MA pupil not achieving. The writing and maths ARE are very positive. The reading ARE was as expected, however the progress score affected by a SEND pupil.

 

 

Improve relationships with parents and therefore improve attendance and punctuality

£10271

School are able to provide support in different ways e.g. home/school liaison. Lifts to and from school and sporting events. School are able to respond on a personalised and individual basis to each of the families. Case studies are available.

 

Support pupils with their emotional literacy to build self-esteem and improve their personal drive

£5378

Friendship groups and 1 – 1 support are offered across the school. This has had dramatic impact on pupils’ progress, well-being, behaviour and achievement.

This support works across all year groups. Impact cannot necessarily be evidenced through tests, but through discussion with pupils and parents and triangulating this within books and lessons. It is clear that this group of pupils have made pleasing progress and not just in the academic arena.
