Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium information

The Pupil Premium Strategy is reviewed annually at the autumn Full Governing Body meeting.

Mrs Penrose (Headteacher and Assessment Leader) leads the provision for Pupil Premium pupils.

This provision is under constant review to ensure the targeted use of the Pupil Premium is highly effective so Pupil Premium pupils ‘diminish the difference’ to their peers.

Pupil Premium is a sum of money allocated to schools to close the attainment gap between those eligible for free school meals and their peers.

Disadvantaged pupils are pupils that have been recorded as eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last six years (Ever 6 FSM) or pupils in care who have been continuously looked after for more than six months by the local authority. The school receives the Pupil Premium (currently £1320 per year) for pupils who are FSM or Ever 6 FSM.

Children from households with lower incomes may be entitled to free school meals. Where parents/carers are paying for school meals (in KS2), families will save around £400 a year for each primary school child if they are entitled to free school meals. As well as receiving a two course meal worth £2.25 every day at primary school, children might also qualify for help with transport costs. Even if your child is in receipt of Universal Infant Free School Meals (UIFSM) in EYFS and Key Stage 1, it is very important you apply for FSM if you are eligible as we will then receive over £1000 per year to support these pupils.

Cambridgshire County Council website has more information about Free School Meals and you can read about "Count me in" for the Pupil Premium on the website or in school.

Our system of ParentPay ensures that children with FSM are not identified when the dinner register is called in school.

Please apply for free school meals if you may be eligible.
Pupil Premium 2017-18
Analysis of the challenges that face our children who are eligible for pupil premium reveals that the barriers to educational achievement are:
  • Attendance & punctuality
  • Oracy Skills
  • Confidence, self esteem and social skills
  • Resilience, independence and a growth mindset
  • Gaps in skills, knowledge and understanding in specific areas of the curriculum
  • Access to extra curricular learning
  • Access to physical resources

Following the analysis of effective practice during 2016-17 and considering the current needs of the children with pupil premium funding, our objectives in spending 2017/2018 are to raise outcomes for pupils through:

  • Expecting & supporting Quality First Teaching for all children.
  • Additional evidence based intervention programmes where appropriate.
  • Additional Teaching Assistant (TA) and Teacher support within the classroom.
  • Curriculum enhancement activities to support motivation and engagement, providing access to a rich and stimulating broad curriculum.
  • Social, emotional and behavioural support to reduce barriers to learning.
  • Attendance and punctuality support to ensure full take up of the school offer.
  • Collaborative Oracy project together with the Barrington, Foxton, Petersfield (PFP) cluster.
Summary of planned spending throughout the year:
  • Lego construction
  • Pre and post lesson support to enable all children to succeed in whole class lessons
  • Talking Partners
  • Success At Arithmetic
  • First Class Number 2
  • Social Stories
  • Motor skills groups
  • Social Spirals
  • Nurture Club
  • Lunchtime Mathletics club
  • Lunchtime sports and book club
  • Access to after school sports clubs
