From September 2012, schools have a statutory obligation to publish details of their Pupil Premium allocation, use and impact. Schools, head teachers and teachers will decide how to use the Pupil Premium allocation, as they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for individual pupils. Source DfE website. Further, OFSTED will 'pay particular attention to how schools are using the pupil premium to improve pupils' achievement'. Listed below is a detailed breakdown of how the school has used the funding for those who are eligible to receive the Pupil Premium.
Pupil premium 2018/2019
We received £15,550 for pupil premium. This has been used to provide sensory OT sessions for two pupils and to provide extra staff support for our children who require additional support due to their complex needs, which create barriers to their learning.
During the Autumn Term whole school IEP analysis for communication showed 79% of children achieving their targets with pupil premium children achieving 80%. For literacy 80% and 82% respectively and for PSD 84% and 80%.
With regard to P level data the trend for 2017/2018 was that the pupil premium children achieved 86% of their targets for Literacy, and maths. 100% achieved expectations for PSD (Personal and Social Development).
The 2018/20 pupil premium will be £11,460 and we intend to use funding for additional classroom support.
