2016/2017 PUPIL PREMIUM SPENDING PLAN
The Pupil Premium is an allocation of funding in addition to the budget provided to schools to support specific pupils who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings, children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months and children from Services families. This also includes any pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years.
At Holy Trinity we are firmly committed to ensuring that all children regardless of their background are entitled to meet their full potential both academically and pastorally. We receive an amount of money on an annual basis direct from the Government known as the Pupil Premium.
In 2016/2017 Holy Trinity Primary School received £90 060 in Pupil Premium funding for our children.
We will use the money in the following ways:
- Full time support staff who run intervention groups and Pre-teaching groups in the afternoons
- SEN Teaching Assistants to work with specific children
- Full Time Learning Mentor and Inclusion Manager
- Contributions towards School Journey (Y6) and Educational Visits
- Staff training to ensure interventions are effective
- Resources to support reading, writing and mathematics
- After-School Club provision for reading, home learning, Bible and art and craft club
From our ongoing analysis of pupil achievement and other self-evaluation activities, we identified that our key priorities to maximise the impact of this funding on achievement are:
- Increase the proportion of pupils’ (in receipt of Pupil Premium) who are learning at expected levels or better in English and maths for each age related year group
- Improve pupils confidence in developing reasoning skills and applying problem solving skills in mathematics
- Ensure attendance for pupils who receive the Pupil Premium is at least in line with school percentages overall and that any gaps between Pupil Premium and non Pupil Premium is reducing.
- Ensure that pupils’ attitudes to learning and behaviours for learning are consistently good and improving and that pupils are able to access learning
- Pupils who are Pupil Premium and SEN are tracked and targeted with specific interventions.
- Ensure that pupils receive the best possible start to their education in EYFS and that pupils in receipt of Pupil Premium achieve or exceed the good level of development
- Maximise parental engagement and support for learning across our school community, including those representing our youngest pupils (in EYFS and KS1)
- Ensure that all pupils, including those in receipt of the Pupil Premium receive curriculum provision which deepens learning experiences and that Pupil Premium children have opportunities to extend learning experiences in a range of contexts.
How do we know it is making a difference?
- Half termly school monitoring of pupil progress data and progress review meetings
- Termly monitoring by the Governing Body and the Curriculum and Resources Committee
- Continuous monitoring of attendance and persistent absence
