Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Grant Allocation Amount

September 2016 - May 2017

Pupil premium for financial year 2016/17 - £194,170 including £5,400 Service Children Pupil Premium and £1,329 Looked After Children Pupil premium.

 

Main barriers to educational achievement faced by eligible pupils at South Camberley Primary and Nursery School:

  • Poor oral language skills in YR slows progress in reading in subsequent years.
  • Pupils who are eligible for Pupil Premium have other factors that impact on their progress: SEN/ statements/EAL (pupils join school in upper KS2 with little to no English).
  • Some pupils do not complete the phonics programme by the end of Y2 and this slows progress in KS2.
  • The behaviour of a small group of pupils in KS2 has a detrimental effect on their learning due to low self- esteem and the belief that they are not able.
  • Poor home learning environments such as dysfunction/poor housing conditions/financial destitution/ domestic violence / alcohol and drug abuse.
  • Several pupils eligible for Pupil Premium are subject to Child Protection Plans due to abuse or risk of abuse at home.
  • Deployment of members of families in services.

 

How we will spend the pupil premium to address those barriers:

  • Read Write Inc – This has a proven track record in the school of supporting our disadvantaged pupils (86% of all pupils achieved phonics standard in Y1 tests in 2016. 88% of disadvantaged pupils achieved the standard). The deployment of this scheme has been expanded to include reading and writing in KS1 and spelling in KS2 - £6,000 spent to date, £4,000 expenditure expected to end of year
  • Additional staff employed to enable Key Worker scheme in EYFS to support language development - £26,400pa
  • 2 additional staff in KS2 to provide PP/SEND support, including behavioural support - £26,400pa
  • Additional teacher in KS1 to avoid mixing of year groups - £33,700pa
  • Provision of ELSA - £17,700 pa
  • Provision of dance lessons and resources for one of our LAC - £370 to date
  • Providing places in extended school programme as required to provide opportunities and emotional support, as well as enabling families to manage work and costs - £10,500 to date, expected £15,000 to end of year
  • Employment of SEND LSA, additional full time SENDCO and subsequent resources to provide additional focused 1:1 support. SEND progress figures to demonstrate greater than expected progress - £68,400pa
  • Pre-teaching to provide support for Y5 and Y6 pupils in order to close the gap. Identified pupils achieve the expected standard
  • Purchase of pre-deployment packs and support within school throughout deployment, e.g. extended school provision, see above
  • Provide financial assistance for trips £3,000, clubs, uniform (£253), school dinners (KS2 £200) and any other items as appropriate.

 

How we will measure the impact of the Pupil Premium:

  • National statutory assessments.
  • SEND data.
  • Case studies of individuals who have been supported with funding.

Pupil Premium Spend for the Academic Year

September 2014 – August 2015

For the financial year April 2014 to March 2015 our school received £158,000.

For the next financial year, April 2015 to March 2016 our school will receive £176,000.

 

FREE SCHOOL MEALS: The pupil premium is allocated to children from low income families who are currently eligible, or who have been eligible in the past 6 years, for Free School Meals.  Schools are free to spend this funding as they see fit but are accountable for how this additional funding has been used to support pupils.  This will ensure that parents are made fully aware of the impact upon and the attainment of pupils covered by the premium, and the extra support that they receive enabled by this funding. 

 

SERVICE FAMILIES: We have a number of Service Families in our school so part of this funding is spent on purchasing books and other resources aimed particularly at this group, to help the children cope with the changes in their family unit and the anxieties that may arise.  We are very aware that Service Families tend to be relocated at short notice and quite often they arrive mid-term. For this reason we provide extra nurturing for the children which includes the Class Teacher organising a ’buddy‘ to help the child familiarise themselves with the school routine and generally settling into school life.  We also support this group by contributing towards various after school and holiday activities to allow the children to socialise and ‘fit in’ more quickly.
